It was like we were living in one of our best dreams. The parents were like 50,000 fans at the NBA game 7 of the finals in Cleveland vs. Golden State.

Even if you have no interest in Basketball or sports in general, you 've probably already caught wind of Kobe Bryant 's retirement. Last Sunday, the Los Angeles Lakers star announced he was calling it a career after 20 illustrious seasons in the NBA.

Charles Barkley, a hall of fame basketball player and a sport analyst, said “[w]ell, the NBA is water down. The NBA is the worst I’ve ever seen it” (Mutoni). When Stephen Curry became the first unanimous MVP,which means everyone voted for him, in NBA history, it proves Charles Barkley point of how the NBA is “water down.” It shows that the NBA doesn’t have that many great players. Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest player of all time, won the MVP when his team achieve an astounding record of 72 wins and 10 losses. Even he didn’t win unanimous due to the fact that he was surrounded by great players that were worthy of winning the MVP.
“Why can’t we get into our freaking offense! ?” This is all I really remember from Coach McKendrick at halftime last year against Niles North in what was a tough night for our basketball team. Prior to this, we beat New Trier at home and then went on the road and beat the pre-season unanimous vote to win conference, Highland Park, in our first conference game.
