Basketball It was my senior year, and I was about to play my last game of high school basketball. My adrenaline was rising as I was listening to some rap songs. I was ready to play, but I was upset that this would be my last high school game. I was hyped up and ready for warm ups. We came out of the locker room, and I was the first in line for lay-ups.

They said he was too skinny and he was too fragile. So Kobe set out to prove everyone wrong. His freshman year his team went 4-20, but even then you could see Kobe’s love for the game and all of his potential.

For instance, Junior had made the varsity basketball team for Reardan. He was considered their secret weapon. Then, for his first game he had to play against Wellpinit, his old school, and had to see all the people who were ashamed by him.

My dad coached my older brother and me, and that's when I started to fall in love with the game. In 6th grade I started to play more competitively, when I made the Lake Stevens AAU basketball team. (AAU is select basketball where teams travel to tournaments and such). Unfortunately I wasn’t the most talented out there, so my playing time was limited. I remember the first game of the season I didn’t play the whole game, and I

Fall River’s High School Basketball team’s point guard was unguarded on the court as well as off of the court. Drug and alcohol use were swept under the rug as long as Durfee High School Basketball team was winning. The pressure in Chris’ early life that led his addictive behaviors came from the town depending on him for winning basketball, his family, and passing the drug tests. Basketball became a runaway train in the Herren house, sports were in the bloodlines of his family. Chris Herren was a very young athlete with pressures seen not only in Fall River but also nationally.

Making it into the NCAA college basketball teams is a difficult commission and many high school basketball athletes have tried to accomplish that task. A quantity of high school athletes have succeeded and a majority of them have not. The issue concerning the NCAA athletes is that they are not being paid to play in these tournaments and games. They are not being paid to win, and to move on to play numerous other teams. With countless new players, the NCAA would have to pay the athletes different amounts of money depending on how long the athletes were on the teams.
Just think a college basketball player working hard and the top of their team it all good on the court but outside of basketball they are struggling to get money. A starting freshmen in college was tacked so hard in football the he was paralyzed. A college basketball player has most his/her time practicing for basketball. Most college basketball players have to skip classes for basketball. College basketball player should be paid for these reasons they put their bodies at risk, they don’t have money, and they skip classes for basketball.
People of color who grow up in America believe that their race/culture is not important because they are ashamed of there culture. People of color try to hide who they really are to fit into other races.This relates to me, because I am arabic and not a lot of people like arabs because they think i am a terrorist and i am going to bomb them. Growing up in America as a boy of another race I sometimes feel I like i want to change my race and i feel ashamed that feel that way about my race/culture. The authors of “fish cheeks” “crabs” and “how to date” argue that growing up as a person of color in America is tough because they are embarrassed of their race , struggle with poverty, and embrace other races instead of their own.

Anthony --- or Ant, as he prefers to be called --- doesn’t love everything about the mean, harsh streets of East Cleveland, but its his home. However, when things take a turn for the really, really worse, he accepts the scholarship offer he’s gotten from a fancy boarding school in Maine and heads there for his freshman year of high school. Ant knows it will be a major adjustment, but some of the changes aren’t exactly the ones he expects. For one, everyone wants to call him Tony. For another, they all believe he can play basketball because I guess he 's black, even though he’s short and prefers football.
Last year I played basketball for the Bath team and Red Cedar team. In my last game I had 24 points, over 10 rebounds, and 5 blocks. After the game the opposing coach came up to me and asked if I wanted to join an AAU team and at the time I didn’t know what that was. He gave me his number and I learned that AAU was a league for really good basketball players. “Are you really serious about basketball?” said my Dad “Yes Dad, I’m sure” I said “Then let’s call the coach” said Dad Then we called the coach and started going to practice.
