Another thing I really liked was the way they made the family characters of mom, dad, and Scott. But my favorite thing was the way that they developed Nick’s basketball skill throughout the story. There is a part in the story where somebody is shot by Zack (Trent’s brother) and Trent has to decide if he’s gonna go into running with him or stay for the big championship game with Nick. So I really enjoyed that part because it combined how much I like basketball and the excitement of whether or not Trent would stay or go. In the book it has dad only caring about Nick as much when he was a good basketball player, so I thought it was cool how they sort of betrayed him as a bad guy.
However, the speaker says, “most of us remember anyway [emphasis added]” (22). This alludes to the fact that the entire town has memories of Flick as a high-school basketball star, and most likely view his current situation with pity. The word “anyway” shows that Flick’s attempts at humor, and deflecting attention from his current position, do little to distract townspeople from recollections of Flick at his teenage prime. His hands are both “fine and nervous” (23) on a lug wrench; “fine” suggests they once had the magic touch, and “nervous” signifies Flick is not comfortable in his current job, at least not in the way he was on the basketball court. The final stanza takes us to Mae’s Luncheonette.
Some critics would say that basketball would be very irrelevant. Then you will have to hear about the people that will disagree, saying that it’s interesting and a form of art; by the dribbling, passing, dunking, laying it up, and the passing. The physics in basketball is the product of the ball player’s memory. In hours of playing or practicing basketball, you begin to form a kinesthetic and remember the amount of force to put on the ball to make it go in; and you remember how to keep your same jump shot. Once you have that you can play anytime on a just stress relieve type of thing.

The consonance of the ng sound at the end of falling and hitting emphasizes that in the game of basketball you have to be willing to sacrifice your body for the betterment of the team. Hirsch’s use of sound devices are one final reason why “Fast Break” is the best poem ever. The best poem ever is “Fast Break”.Hirsch has great use of sensory details.

The I'll kick the shit out of you" (Conroy 48). Pat's household was Hell. Everyday, he faced abuse and so did the rest of the family.

If there are any criticisms for this book it would stem from the over utilization of the spotlight placed on 5’3 guard Bogues. Bogues who became a Perennial superstar in the NBA, definitely deserved praise, however, Danois may have “ran the well dry” by continuously placing the limelight on Bogues with stories such as “When the fans saw “Mugsy” announced during the starting lineup, snickers and laughter came raining down from the stands” (3:45-3:46) and then Bogues would continue to show the crowd how good he was and he would always earn their respect. That story seemed to repeat itself throughout the narrative and began

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. My friends and I were running a game against some people there who wanted to run (play a game), we got our five and they got theirs. This one tall white boy that was approximately 6’4 started to post my up and he would do this little basic spin that I would block most of the time and I noticed him getting a little mad so I started to trash talk a bit to him and the little flame within my to start to spark a bit, my aggression started to present itself to my and I loved the feeling. The next play he is guarding my I’m looking him straight in his eyes I start to dribble up the
