What stood out to me was Stephen Curry did not draw his attention about the excruciating comments he kept following his incredible dream and practiced. Also he ignored incredible mean comments coming from horrible students who are bullies from other enormous schools but again he keeps on practicing and not worrying about the huge comments. Also Stephen Curry 's amazing family assist him over those mean comments from bully’s. Stephen Curry aspired his humongous dream and did not worry about the harsh comments around him when going into the NBA. Stephen Curry will always be a desired hard working basketball player that will have quiet
Have you ever wondered just how Michael Jordan was one of the most incredible role models to ever live, as well as an NBA All Star? Well first he had to go through many ups and downs as a child, and he had to exert all the pain and all of the complications of the world in order to get to where he is today. Also his career in the National Basketball Association was filled with ups and downs, but he continued to strive for greatness to become the player he is now. When he was on the court Michael was one of the greatest players and when he was off the court, he gave many people someone to look up to for advice and help. The life and career of NBA Allstar, Michael Jordan, has served a model to all aspiring basketball players and will continue
Despite the departure, Kobe remained connected to basketball, as his grandfather would mail footage of NBA games. Bryant has cited several NBA hall of famers as his role models, all of them contributing to his growing knowledge and love for basketball. These NBA greats had a valuable impact on Bryant, who incorporated many of their skills into his own game. This was recognisable during Kobe’s NBA career, where he adapted and perfected his idol Michael Jordan’s signature ‘fade away’, as well as Hakeem Olajuwon’s trademark ‘dream shake’. In summary, one can study Kobe Bryant’s socialization into basketball by examining the prominent figures surrounding him in his childhood, as well as the role models whom he used to fuel his knowledge, skill, and interest in the
He took this major responsibility in stride and escaped with many lives. In addition, when exploring Scylla and Charybdis, he encouraged his men to persevere and to endure. Odysseus enlivened his men in these words, “‘friends, / have we never been in danger before this? / More fearsome, is it now… Do I not keep my nerve, and use my wits / to find a way out for us?” (Homer 885). He took his responsibility of his crew to new lengths and empowered them to stay strong.
Throughout the movie, Coach Carter has effectively communicated with his team players in various ways. He first communicated his expectations of the team clearly in the form of a basketball contract, but later spent time to invite feedback and listened to what the team had to say before explaining his reason for implementing the contract. He appeals to his audience’s emotions by sharing about how some of his own teammates ended up in prison or dead, which eventually inspired the players to push for better academic results as they understood that he was trying to affect change in their
He comes across as authoritative on multiple occasions when he tries to silence any brewing arguments. He likes his position of power. As a juror he doesn’t contribute much until the very end. Through the course of the story the Foreman is seen as trying really hard to keep things moving in a systematic and meticulous fashion. He suggests the idea of the first round of ballot voting to set things in motion.
The movie, Glory Road directed by James Gartner was released on January 13, 2006 (IMDb staff., 2018). It was rated PG-Parental Guidance Suggested for racial issues including violence, epithets, and mild language (IMDb staff., 2018). This 118 minute sports film depicts the inspiring true story of the underdog Texas Western University basketball team with the first all-African American starting lineup of players, who surprisingly won the 1966 NCAA tournament title on March 19th (IMDb staff, 2018). Unlike college basketball teams of today, in 1966 blacks were not allowed to play college basketball (Integration, 2012). Josh Lucas stars as the future Hall of Fame coach Don Haskins, the passionately dedicated college basketball coach who recruited
Self-control led Odysseus’ men to glory, not dying from the first challenge set upon them. To clarify, Odysseus demonstrated that having restraint can be crucial in times of war. For instance, when the trials were done and the king went back home; he saw that his house was filled with suitors. Odysseus then controlled himself and didn’t take foolish actions, but waited and made a plan. This idea was then further elucidated in the words of Homer, “The stool he let fly hit the man’s shoulder.
Some other visuals in which we go from the visual of a young boxer working out, to the image of a basketball player in celebration and here the words “It’s about work, before glory”. In regards to this scene, it represents the action of working hard leads to a celebration of a victory. This view also lends itself to the idea that the act of working hard is essential to becoming
Speech Analysis Each one of us can leave a mark in this world and that is all conducted by effort. This was the message that Ray Lewis conveyed to the Stanford mens basketball team in a pre game speech. He went further into stating that no one can judge effort nor see it displayed on film because everyday people have to bring it. Being ok with being mediocre is unacceptable and that the men must strive for greatness. Ray Lewis, the speaker of this speech, is very famously known for being the best linebacker in NFL history for the Baltimore Ravens.
They’re made by the greatest of all time himself. I read a story about Michael Jordan being cut from his high school basketball team. Little did his coach know that he got rid of the best basketball player ever. This motivated me and every other young athlete to keep trying even when things seem impossible. Jordan is seen as a basketball player, team owner, brand owner, and role model.
The reason I picked Stephen Curry as the person I think is a good leader is because he has inspired me in more ways than one and he is also a great Christian person. He always has written, “I can do all things…” on his basketball shoes. Stephen Curry taught me that no matter how bad circumstances seem you should always try and you will reach your goal. Stephen Curry was in the exact situation I’m in right now. The summer of my sophomore year I decided to change my shooting form for the better.
So much can be taken from studying these two athletes. Manziel knew he was a star and only wanted to be around other stars, with that attitude he lost respect from his fans, myself included. One 's character can take them along ways, with their work ethic and how they treat others. Mariota has not stopped his hard work and his numbers show it. Manziel has it set in his mind that he is the best and nobody can ever overcome him and with that he is become a bust.
The greatest attribute to Hackman’s character is the passion for the game and commitment to the way he believes it should be played. Hoosiers is a movie that stirs emotions in your heart for those of us that feel passion for our profession. The story is more than the final outcome, but is the journey to get there and conquering adversity along the way. As Hackman himself says to his players in the locker room before playing for the championship, “I don’t care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game. In my book, you’re winners!” This movie reveals a powerful message that winning isn’t everything; it is passion and striving for excellence that matters most.
“I heard they are really good” said Ali “I don’t think we can win this one” said Teo Then Coach Jenkins came up to us and said, “ Don’t think like that guys, they are human just like you, don’t think just because they are an A team means they are like gods. You can beat them” That speech motivated us to the point where we weren’t scared. We weren’t intimidated either. We couldn’t care less that they were the A team. When we played them, right off the bat,Boom, we won the tip off and Ali made a three pointer.
