He wasn't as focused on the Bobcats as he should of been because his son was a uprising star, him and his ex wife were very supportive and Jordan said " he didn't want people to see his son as another Jordan, he wanted people to see him as his own person." ( "Michael Jordan Biography"). This meant that Jordan wanted his son to play on his own terms and become great on his own terms. Even off the court Michael was still trying to impress the world with his great spirit and determination and this would make everyone look up to him as a wonderful role
When Michael Jordan retired from the NBA, he went down in the history books as the greatest basketball player ever. Most NBA analysts say that Jordan is the best basketball player ever, while others believe that he is tied with other players for that title. Most believe Jordan is the best because of his defensive player of the year award, many offensive achievements, and finals win percentage. In Jordan’s first few seasons, people criticized him for being a one dimensional player.
He had Fresno State try to sign him, San Diego State, SMU, and Wyoming those are just a couple of colleges that talked to him. Fresno State was probably the best choice he could’ve made for his career because they helped him do what he wanted to achieve which is make the NBA. The college he went to was the best choice for him. No one thought he could make the NBA except his mom and two sisters which were his inspiration.
It starts at a young age where aspiring basketball players want to become the next Michael Jordan. They look up to him, and he is their idol. Although it may seem foolish, but they feel as wearing Jordan’s shoe will make them play better. I still remember begging my parents as a child for a pair of Air Jordans so I could improve my playing. Air Jordan has such a huge following that it created a culture and even lifestyle for some.
This was a big step for me, I was really getting out of my comfort zone. I did not know the guys that were older than me and I did not really talk to any of them either. So I was kind of going in blind but the coach was Dave Lange and he was a great coach who believed in me and helped me with my skills and helped improve basketball intelligence.
They supposed that anyone seeking virtues should seek them because they are practical and have ‘real-world’ benefits, “…vicious actions are not hurtful because they are forbidden, but forbidden because they are hurtful, the nature of man alone considered; that it was, therefore, everyone’s interest to be virtuous who wished to be happy…” ( Franklin 1973/2016, p. 65). Along those lines Aristotle also stated, “But for actions in accord with the virtues to be done temperately or justly it does not suffice that they themselves have the right qualities. Rather, the agent must also be in the right state when he does them” (Aristotle, 2005, p. 578). They believed the only way to become virtuous was by doing virtuous actions.
“It’s not whether you fall down, its weather you get up”. In “Brainology”, Carol S. Dweck corresponds that with “fixed and growth mindsets”. I believe that if you have a fixed mindset, reading “The Significance of Grit” by Angela Lee Duckworth is a great start to developing a growth mindset. Success isn’t handed to anyone; Even Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan had to work hard. Their Growth mindsets and grit have brought them to be the two best basketball players to ever live.
It would let the kid know that they need to stay encouraged and to work harder. Just because they didn’t get a trophy doesn’t mean that they should give up. Not getting a trophy is just a statement of encouragement. Also if they didn’t get a reward or congratulations doesn’t mean that they didn’t do good. If they knew they were good, then that should tell them to not give up the sport or activity and be negative about themselves.
Which will lead to less freedom, so every view should be considered. And to prevent the risk of injury it should be controlled by a specific and clear rules made by professional athletes which will make any sport activity safier. Sports are very useful for any person no matter what they are, so do sport, find which one you like the most and you will become healthier and
The eye test shows LeBron’s brilliance, but the stats solidify it. An easy way to measure just how important a player’s importance to his team is usage percentage, a number of a team’s offensive plays a player is used on, whether by shooting, creating a shot for a teammate, or turning the ball over. After last night’s Game 5, LeBron’s usage rate was 41.3 percent, according to
For example, Grant Hughes describes in an article, written in 2014, about the San Antonio Spurs, and how their “style”, unselfishness, and no “me first” guys have been the base of their dynasty over the last 20 years or so. Compare the article to Bill Simmons’ secret of basketball, and Hughes uses it perfectly to describe how the Spurs have built their dynasty. Ultimately, Simmons does it better, mainly for the fact the Spurs are nearly perfect and merely describing them would give you a pretty good idea of the secret told by Bill
In the assumption of learning theory we are making assumptions about learning from different perspectives. From an educator’s perspective, we have made assumptions about the needs and readiness of learners, and assumed that there are best teaching and learning strategies for particular learners under particular learning context. Experiments and research have been conducted to validate the findings. From a learner’s perspective, the learners have assumed that they would be able to achieve the learning goals based on certain learning strategies, that suit their particular learning styles, and under
The wise man Knute Rockne once said, “win or lose, do it fairly.” (Rockne). This quote has a lot of meaning when it comes to sports in today’s world. Athletes often try to choose the easy way out or things. For example, some athletes today try to lie about their strengths.
Darren Turner RWK0039 Understanding good practice in workplace coaching Understand the context for effective workplace coaching AC 1.1 Describe and define the purpose of workplace coaching Coaching is an increasingly popular tool for supporting personal development in individuals as it tends to be carried out in a one to one situation and is seen as less formal as training. The aim of coaching is to allow the person being coached to gain awareness and insight rather than directly telling them what to do or even what they should learn, in this scenario the coach does not usually give direct advise as this would be training rather than coaching , which are two different aspects of learning and teaching.
