Biography

Jonas 'Jonny' McMillan was born in Santa Rosa, California, to a struggling middle class family who simply couldn't keep up with their bills and ended up having to sell much of what they owned due to poor money handling. Growing up with increasingly little, and being around other kids his age who were able to have more and had no problem rubbing his face in it, was the source of much bitterness that drove Jonas to act out. He began skipping school, defying authority figures (in particular, his parents, whom he blamed for much of his frustrations), getting into fights, bullying, and even going so far as to commit petty theft in his eighth grade year, the lattermost offense being the one that sent him to Juvenile Hall. During his time at Juvie, Jonas met an officer named Norm Keller. Norm was a bear of a cop - literally and figuratively; he was a grizzly bear - who had seen too many kids ruin their lives because of their choice to commit crimes and had thus made it his mission to make sure Jonas wouldn't become another statistic. Keller turned Jonas on to basketball, often playing one-on-one with Jonas during his parole and whenever he was off-duty. Though it took some time to break through Jonas' resentfulness, especially after learning that his family had to sell the house in order to try and pay off lawyer fees, Officer Keller's efforts eventually began to take hold, and after finally coming to the realization that his family's life didn't have to be how he lived his own life, Jonas became incredibly invested in his schooling, graduating a month ahead of his class with honors. Jonas attributed much of his sudden drive to live a better life to Officer Keller playing basketball with him, and so all through his high school career, every day until he was run off from the court for the night, Jonas would play basketball against anybody who would accept the challenge; and when he was accepted into PredTech of Northern California, he immediately jumped at the chance to play college basketball. After initially starting on the bench due to a wholly average play style that didn't necessarily hurt the team, but also didn't really benefit them, Jonas finally got a chance at the court during a game against a rival school when one of the players, a shooting guard, went down with a bad injury and had to be taken out. Jonas was put in to cover for his fallen teammate, and calling on the memories of playing one-on-one with Officer Keller, he managed to score five times against the opposing team before the clock ran out and propelled his own team to victory. By sheer coincidence, it turned out that the shooting guard Jonas replaced had to be put in a cast, which effectively ended his college season early, allowing Jonas to continue to play, and subsequently win each game. As an added bonus, it became the norm for his team to end games with a wide gap in their favor between theirs and the opposing team's points. It was an easy decision to keep Jonas right where he was, one that was even supported by the outed player, whom Jonas had helped heal and become good friends with as a result of feeling guilty for succeeding on that player's failure. Jonas continued to win game after game for his school for the next three years, and as it happened, during one of his last games before he graduated, a recruiter for the FBA was in the crowd watching. After the game, Jonas was approached by the recruiter and informed that he had potential to go far in the FBA, and with very little convincing necessary, Jonas gladly declared himself for the draft.
