Origin of Name of Transition Game

In basketball terminology, the transition game refers to a game in which players switch offensively and defensively.

However, the origin of the name transition game is based on their boyhood experience.

  • The main character, Kam Ford, is a high school freshman living with his mother on a U.S. military base in Germany. However, due to his mother's work, they had to move to a remote island in Okinawa.
  • Robin Lopez and her mother were teachers and taught at various schools, so they moved every time. My older brother (Chris) moved from Los Angeles when he was in middle school and lived on an island about 2 hours from Seattle. My mother also taught in Germany, so my brother had lived there before we were born.

Kameron Ford's position is point guard.

Kameron Ford is a big point guard (6.4 feet (195 cm) tall), like Magic Johnson (6.9 feet (206 cm) tall).

He is only 15 years old, so he has plenty of room to grow.

He wears the NBA All-Star jersey #32, so he probably idolizes Magic Johnson.

Kameron Ford's personality and style of play is a combination of Miyagi, Mitsui, and Rukawa in SLAM DUNK.

He can play not only point guard, but also shooting guard and small forward. (Maybe even center?!).
