There were over four thousand people there to watch the game. The Knicks were the second worst team in the NBA at the time, while our team, the Warriors, was 46-29, so I felt confident that my team would win. The game soon started and I was guarded by Darrall Imhoff of the Knicks, but he was no match for me. At the end of the game everyone was happy and cheering for me because I had scored 100 points. I saw the stats at the end of the game and I had shot 36-63 from the field and was 28 of 32 from the free throw line.
Iowa State Cyclones Big 12 Conference (2014 record: 2-10) Head Coach: Paul Rhoads Offense: In recent years, the Iowa Cyclones have turned into a bit of a punching bad for the Big 12 Conference. After two seasons with a total of one with within the conference, one has to believe Coach Rhoads is coaching on a short leash. In 2014, the offense was lethargic. They gained a total of 372.5 YPG of total offense while only scoring 23.2 PPG. The only positives to take away from last year was the offense limited its turnovers to 16 while the entire team only committed 51 penalties for 490 yards.
No two leagues had ever made a merge quite like this until August 5, 1976. On that day the American Basketball League was about to encounter a historic merger with the National Basketball Association. The NBA was in dire need of a team extension and this was the time as the ABA’s time as a league was about to come to a halt. You may be wondering “why would they merge”, well the ABA wasn’t the richest league in the world. The ABA was so poor they couldn’t even afford a TV contract!
Steph Curry was doubted all his life due to his size though. He stood at the height of 5’6 in the 10th grade which made it hard for him to follow his dream. The summer of his sophomore year he decided to change his shot for the better. He averaged 20 points a game but it wasn’t enough for colleges to notice him. He ended up going to Davidson college where he later lead them to the be the NCAA final 8 but lost in the semi-finals, and during his time in college
I remember that when we played Los Fresno my sophomore we lost to them extremely bad, I remember the score being 72-0. Towards the end of the 2014-2015 season when we didn’t win any games our head coach Jason Starkey told us that “ next year we will have a better season and that we will work together to win games. The
Houston has never lost a playoff game at home. The offense is good enough to score a few points, and if the defense plays well enough, that is all they will need to win a game or two. I doubt the Texans will win the Super Bowl, but crazier things have happened. Houston is a good team that should not be overlooked. They may not be world beaters, but this is a scary team with J.J. Watt on the defensive lone.
The streak is one that goes all the way back to 2010, the year when James left his home-state Cleveland to join Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami Heat. The bulk of this streak was on James, who won all seven home games against the Cleveland Cavaliers during his four-year stay with the Miami Heat. In his four-year stint in Miami , the Miami has not lost a game to Cleveland, and this streak still continues since James announced his return to Cleveland. Both teams are positioned on the same side of the Eastern playoff bracket, and are primed for a potential second-round matchup. This could spell disaster for Cavaliers if they cannot find some
Polar Opposites 15-50, the most lopsided score all year. As the last place team running against last year’s State Champions, we knew we were going to lose. The meet resembled David and Goliath except Goliath would most certainly win. We went into every meet knowing we were going to lose, but that was irrelevant, because to us, cross country was more than just the final score. The bus ride to the Amherst meet was just like any other that season.
When people argue that players should have to go to college before pro, they bring up the name Reggie Harding because he wasn’t ready for all the hype leading up to the draft and his body wasn’t developed enough for the ABA. In Others who argue that players should be able to skip college bring up names like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Dwight Howard, who are all current NBA superstars.
If the player skips it, and they fail to get into the sport they want, then that’s their fault. The player chose to risk it, and that risk gave a bad ending. But to some people, college is too much of a risk. For example, if someone gets into a college team, but then they get a injury that does some permanent damage, then the player’s future may be ruined, or if the player does get into the NBA/NFL, they are probably going to earn less than if they had never gotten injured. Also, to some people, college is a waste of time.
Remember the last time LeBron James matched up against a player that was supposed to be in his stratosphere in the NBA Finals? By the time the Oklahoma City Thunder matched up against the Miami Heat in 2012, Kevin Durant was universally considered the second best player in the world. Durant was great in that series, but LeBron showed us just how big the gap between the best and the second best really was. He 's doing it again. Stephen Curry was the league’s most valuable player this season and clearly the best player on the best team.
Russell Westbrook is a famous professional basketball player who plays for the Oklahoma city thunders. He was forth in the NBA draft. Russell Westbrook was his team top scoring option when Kevin Durant was on sideline for a foot injury. After his third season he became fifth in the league history. He led his team to the 2012 NBA finals after being drafted to the Oklahoma city thunders.
For example, John Wooden, a basketball player that went to the University of California once said, "It 's not how big you are, it 's how big you play." How you play is something that can either bring excitement to the sport or, if you don’t play with passion and go one hundred percent, how boring you are to watch. For the NCAA there are 351 teams in just Division 1 with each team offering 13 scholarships per year. Coming out to about 4,511 players fighting to make a team, and hopefully make it to the professional leagues. For most kids, this is their only shot of doing something amazing with their life, so they play with passion
Fans started to see the potential and worth of his play. He played all 82 games and averaged 6 points, and played 18 minutes almost every game. His team finished 4th tied in the Midwest division. In the playoffs they pulled off an upset against the Houston Rockets and moved on to the
