TJ Zaps the Smackdown #6: Stopping a Physical Bully

Format Price Qty

TJ and his best friend Ethan are on the basketball team. Although Ethan isn't a starter, Coach Daltry notices he's been improving a lot. Niko notices it, too. If Ethan starts, Niko knows it means that someone will have to sit out and he knows that someone is him! He'll do anything he can to keep Ethan on the bench even if it means hurting Ethan or anyone else who sticks up for him. It's going to take more than one upstander to help TJ Trapper zap this bully!
