Victory is yours! Don’t you just love the sound of that? I have played a lot video games, and on many consoles in my short life. People play video games to have fun, make money, pass the time, or just to relax, an forget about what has gone wrong in their day. Some people play games all day without sleeping or eating, that’s how serious it is. I play video games to remove stress and just to have fun, but two are the most fun to play.
The fifth Basketball Rule in The Crossover says: When you've stopped playing your game, you've already lost. This is about not giving up. If you are a volleyball player and you lose all of the time, you are not going to ever win if you quit. In life, you must always try to get better and never quit. If you are in chorus and you don't understand a song, you never will understand it if you decide to quit. Sometimes you just have to realize that you must keep
In Jordan’s first few seasons, people criticized him for being a one dimensional player. One year Jordan decided that he would work on his defense. Many critics wanted him to have a weakness, because without one, he would be unstoppable. Instead of Jordan becoming an okay defender, he became the best defender that year. Not only did he get better defensively,
It is as simple as that. In some ways basketball is like school. If you don’t do well and pay attention in practice, then you wont do well in games. If you don’t pay attention and listen attentively in class, you wont do well on that test. I have the same mindset every time single time from when I take that first step onto the squeaky orange court, to when I enter class each day. (when in the huddle before each game, listening to coach Vandermulen and our two captains fire us up, I am more than eager to start the game, to run long way down the court along side our fans, to make unbelievable passes without looking or behind my back, to be ready to catch and shoot, to score, or even to miss, but most of all, to play the game I love. I’m ready to do what I’ve loved since I picked up that basketball for the first time in third grade. I’m ready to be one with the team, to be a Roman. The intensity and emotions that come along with each game make me apart of that game. As a player, I live for the rivalries, the scrappy games that go down to the wire, the sweat. I love that it is not just the players that are involved in the game, but all of the surroundings and
American basketball star Michael Jordan was born on February 17, 1963, in Brooklyn, New York. Jordan left college after his junior year to join the NBA. Drafted by the Chicago Bulls, he helped the team make it to the playoffs. For his efforts there, Jordan received the NBA Rookie of the Year Award. With five regular-season MVPs and three All-Star MVPs, Jordan became the most decorated player in the NBA. The effect of Jordan’s game was so profound that the league changed its rules to make the games more enjoyable. This translated in outlawing defensive contact when a player is in the perimeter, which in turn allowed players to relentlessly attack the lane and score on spectacular layups or dunks in a manner similar to what Jordan popularized.
Although many people argue that ẗhey cant dance¨ anyone can really dance. Moving your hips or side stepping is dancing. Although thats how my passion started out, I am going to explain dancing as a sport. Narrowing down to competitive (sweat, blood, and tears) dancing. Specifically, dancing as a member of the desert hills high school drill team. A drill team dancer is required to be strong, flexible, and brave.
As usual, hear me out and read what I have to say before you react. Go into this with an open mind and relax. Ok, now let me explain. The Oklahoma City Thunder will go down in history as the organization that ruined a team filled with three rising superstars in their prime. Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden are all MVP candidates this season and somehow they all ended up on the same team. Prior to the Demarcus Cousins trade, this could be looked at as one of the dumbest decisions a front office has made in years. Five years after choosing to secure Serge Ibaka instead of Harden, did the Thunder make the right decision? I believe so.
He dribbles down the court, he shoots, he scores! Basketball, a game of dribbling, shooting, scoring, and winning. A simple orange ball turned into a game for people to play and enjoy for all time.

Playing basketball helps burn your calories and build your endurance. Since basketball is such a fast paced game, playing one hour of basketball can burn 630 to 750 calories, and will help build endurance as there is a lot of running from one basket to the other. Playing basketball also helps to build muscle and improve balance and coordination. Playing basketball requires you to use all of your muscle such as your legs to jump for a dunk or dunk, and your hands and arms to dribble or shoot. Due to the constant the constant dribbling, jumping and shooting it helps train and build your muscles. As well as building muscle playing basketball also helps improve balance and coordination as doing multiple things at once are required such as jumping and shooting at the same time. Basketball also develops self-discipline and concentration as it is required to make the right decisions in a game and make good judgements that will help in winning. This is why basketball has a lot of benefits for
On a free hit, every player on the fouled team is now on the offensive, no matter what their positions are. Each player has a job and if any person fails to complete it, it could result in a turnover and the opposing team will get the ball. There are several strategies and responsibilities during free hits, including:
A Turkish proverb states, “ No matter how far you have gone on a wrong road, turn back.” In other words, one mistake doesn’t ruin someone’s life, so don’t be afraid to pick a different path to go down. This is tremendously impactful for society because so many people get caught down the wrong road when there is always another option somewhere else. Two people who live by this proverb are Thomas Edison and Michael Jordan. A piece of literature which contains the same theme is The Odyssey, and a current event which pertains to the idea is the presidential election.
The no-huddle offense in College Football has been a topic argued about over and over and over again concerning the safety of the players, the unfair advantages and more. It should not be removed, it has too many perks and makes the games more exciting. No-huddle offenses should not be banned because it creates an advantage for the the offense, gets the defense tired and makes the game more enjoyable.
Dodgeball; the greatest elimination game on Earth. What would you think if you could never play it again? I, for one, would be crushed that could never play it again. Many principals in Elkton, Maryland banned dodgeball because they believed it was inappropriate. They removed it from the P.E. curriculum just recently. I believe that dodgeball shouldn’t be taken out of the curriculum because it helps them be more aware, teaches them about life, and it leads to more games being taken away.
This week I learned about topics related to shooting form, dribbling, and layups. I watched two videos by Howard Elite Basketball and ILovebasketballTV on how to get better shooting form. I learned key points like how there’s no single perfect shooting form and that everyone 's form is unique. I also learned that you generate power from your lower body, and that you should have a
