Yes, you can go out and draft guys like Marc Gasol and DeMarcus Cousins, but they won’t be near as fun to root for as Jordan. Gasol usually is injured at least once every season and Cousins falls under the “I play for a crappy team” category for me. When I enter any of my drafts whether it be for football or basketball, I almost always grab guys who play on winning teams. This year the Clippers will be a top three team in the stacked Western Conference, hence just another reason to draft Jordan. Believe in DeAndre this year guys, I know you’ve like him in the past, but you’ll love him even more this season.
Michael wasn’t a born ready basketball player that everyone thought he was because of his success in the NBA. One of Michael’s coaches once said, “Jordan, interestingly, was not a “Natural” basketball player” (Johnson). The natural born talent Jordan had was playing baseball, so in order to become successful, he had to practice and work harder than others. One journalist stated,” Jordan’s high school basketball coach, Clifton Herring, picked up the young athlete each morning at 6:00 to practice the game before school” (Johnson). In contrast to not making the basketball team for his high school, Jordan worked hard everyday to get better and use the athleticism god had given him.
Being able to succeed in the NBA without going to college is a big topic of controversy in the sports industry. For gifted basketball players, there are some benefits and drawbacks of skipping college. Examples of Players who Skipped College The first player to skip college and go straight into pro basketball (in this case the ABA) was Reggie Harding (Faye). Harding was drafted in the fourth round of the 1961 draft, unfortunately Harding didn’t touch the court his first year in the league, which lead him to re-enter the draft the very next year. When people argue that players should have to go to college before pro, they bring up the name Reggie Harding because he wasn’t ready for all the hype leading up to the draft and his body wasn’t developed enough for the ABA.
America should protects every life, from conception to the grave. Love of neighbor and love of country should exceed love of self. Every potential should be maximized and everyone should have the same opportunity to succeed. The America I envision is generous, following
According to Webster’s Dictionary, the American dream is the ideal that every US citizen should have an equal opportunity to achieve success and prosperity through hard work, determination, and initiative according to Webster’s Dictionary. Although this is true, the goals of achieving the American Dream is different to individuals. For example, having a college education, a successful marriage, giving your kids a better life than yours, becoming famous, speaking english, or being an American citizen are all part of some people’s opinion on accomplishing the American dream. My American dream consists of having a roof over my head, a successful job, enough to eat, a happy wife and children, and a healthy life. I want a spacious house in a safe
Steph Curry was doubted all his life due to his size though. He stood at the height of 5’6 in the 10th grade which made it hard for him to follow his dream. The summer of his sophomore year he decided to change his shot for the better. He averaged 20 points a game but it wasn’t enough for colleges to notice him. He ended up going to Davidson college where he later lead them to the be the NCAA final 8 but lost in the semi-finals, and during his time in college
Stephen Curry was the league’s most valuable player this season and clearly the best player on the best team. He should be able to show he is a close second to LeBron in this series, right? He is not even close. In fact, no one in history may be close to this version of King James. You can argue that no player in NBA history has been this important to a team 's success.
His first two seasons in the league he played behind Rickey Green. Stockton started to worry and believe that he was going to be a one season player.

I was extremely excited to be captain because of my love for the sport and for my amazing team, especially because it was going to be my last year competing. My school has still not won a City Championship, but my team and I wanted to change that this year. We all pushed ourselves to the limit, and we worked harder than ever before. On the day of our City Championship meet, we cheered each other on and we put on our best performance. We were all worried that the team that had been disqualified during my freshman year was going to win.
Then my brother played one of their low ranking players and was beaten putting us tied 1-1. Then my dad player our opponents other low ranking player and my dad pulled out our second win. This meant if we won the next game we won the event but if we lost then my low ranking player would have to play the other teams high ranking tournament. They put up their middle ranked player and my dad put me up against him. It was all on the line and my team put the match on my shoulders against a strong middle ranked player.
