Many basketball players dream is to go to the NBA. A lot of players go to the NBA before they ever finish or graduate college, many of the players don't get drafted or make the team. If basketball doesn't work out for them what are they going to do? The players have families to support and usually a house to pay and so forth. So they won't have a major to find a job for because they had very few years of college.
I started to practice at my house—it was the only hoop available for me at the time. Everyday, I would go outside and just shoot as many shots as I can so, I could make my form better. A few weeks of practicing, I started to see progress in my form—I made more shots than usual. Since I thought I was getting better, I decided to ask my parents if they could put me in a basketball team. My parents agreed without any hesitation.

Although many have not heard his name, George Mumford was the mastermind behind some of the NBA’s biggest moments. Although fans of the NBA (National Basketball Association) can recall the league's most exciting plays, many fail to see how Mumford’s lessons on mindfulness behind the scenes made them possible. Growing up George Mumford had the identical dream of thousands of kids across the United States; to play in the NBA. Unfortunately, he struggled with back problems early on in his college career, and later fought with alcohol addiction. These struggles forced Mumford to make his mark in the NBA in a different way.
The Concussion While growing up my life had always been about basketball. Because of playing this sport I ended up getting an injury that not only injured my body but also my life. My injury was not like any other injury to the body, it was to my head. I didn’t know it then but brain injuries are hard to fully heal from. I learned this when I had thought that I got over my concussion until my grades started to plunge due to the fact that I was missing school because of migraines that had me crying myself to sleep and that were so bad that I wasn’t able to function normally.
When I heard it that 's when I was running as fast as I can then notice I had the lead the whole way, that 's when I become a track star. When it comes to playing basketball I didn 't play for my school because that take time away from me from running track I couldn 't do both at the same time, therefore I was unable to play basketball for my school but I would play it with my friends, at the park where they refer to me as an Nba player known as Nate Robinson because I was short, fast, and quick. if it wasn’t for track and field I would’ve had play basketball for my
But this journey still ways to go. My goal was getting brighter and brighter like the end of a dark tunnel I saw my goal so close but yet so far not being able to grasp it and pull it in within in my reach. During my junior year is when I noticed dunking was beginning to get easier and I didnt have to put as much effort in. I still wasn't were I wanted to be I was getting high enough to slam the ball with aggression I wanted to, my drive to the basket with intention to slam it was not there yet. Until my senior year which is when I began to notice the difference when I drive to the basket, I realized that little over a month or two ago when I was at open gym.
The class of 2016 I 'm actually surprised I made it this far but I made it this far because of my friends and family especially the teachers. it could not have been easy putting up with me all these years, picking me up when I falter, trying to get me on track when I 'm staring into space (which is pretty much all the time.) I have had some good times and bad times at Ella Lewis, mostly bad (Just Kidding.) Some of the good memories are like when I tried to dunk a basketball in the basketball hoop and ended up landing on my back. I really liked hooking up most of the garden’s irrigation system and fixing Mrs. Wells watch because she can’t seem to do it herself.
I had always thought that Wooden’s statement was only inspire those who had lost, but through personal failures I have learned otherwise. When I joined FFA, in seventh grade, speaking events, such as Creed Speaking, amazed me; I wanted to compete in one and be one of those confident competitors. I tried out for the Creed Contest in eighth grade but did not qualify
One thing I am thankful for had to be my concussion, sounds strange right? Well we all have our stories but mine started during my freshman year basketball game. Going into the game, I thought we were walking out with an easy win because we played this team before and won. First lesson, don’t ever be cocky in a sport because it will bite you back. Of course, my team decided we were not going to take the game too serious since we won before and karma caught up with us really fast.
This is one of the reasons that Henry could have ran away from the second battle, because he was close to death. Henry wasn’t doing well for his first time; he went a little over board and got himself into trouble again. “The youth awakened slowly. He came gradually back to a position from which he could regard himself. For moments he had been scrutizing his person in a dazed way as if he had never seen himself.” (Crane ch6 pg.1) This was at the end of the battle.
