Instead, he starts off as a scared and nervous kid who could barely hold himself to go to practice. Royce can be seen thinking “I was scared shitless when I first came out, and not of the coaches. Like all freshmen, I was shipped over to JV, Team White, and I was so nervous the first day I had the shits for thirty minutes and was late for my first real practice. I was in the stall bent over and miserable and thinking, No way you can compete at this level. I had my chin on my knees.

Another reason Michael is the best basketball player in the N.B.A is because he was a hard working player. Michael was constantly trying to find ways to improve his game he would practice until it was perfect. Michael was working on a signature shot. As the story stated, “...he spent the summer in Hollywood making the movie ‘Space Jam,’ but he demanded that the producers build a basketball court where he could work out every day. Old friends dropping by the Warner lot noticed that he was working particularly hard on a shot that was already a minor part of his repertoire but which he was now making a signature shot––a jumper where he held the ball, and then, at the last minute, when he finally jumped, fell back slightly, giving himself almost perfect separation from the defensive player.

I always wanted to help and give back to the community of Honokaa. Parents have just been so pleased with what we’ve done for their kids.

Once he arrived to the front doors he was confronted by Selene Blackland, she prevented him from entering the school because of: how baggy his pants were, how long his hair was and how it would cover his eyes, how many freckles he had on his body, and lastly because he tried to date her best friend who was clearly out of his league. It wasn’t more than a five minute wait before the administrator came to gather all students lounging outside to front doors to bring them inside to prepare for class, when she noticed that Selene was up to her shenanigans
The many times I had loss to him it just made my confidence just go down the drain a lot of the time. My first time Frankie and I had wrestled against each other it was during the first tournament during the season in the semi-finals. The match was a very close one it was a five point to three point match which he had won. Frankie had just dominated the match with his strength and not by his wrestling ability it just made me realize I had to work harder in wrestling practice and the weight
“It is only a game” is a common saying I have heard several times in my life. However, it does not explain the crazy actions and immense passion I experience on the PIT floor for basketball games. These feelings reached a pinnacle point during my freshman year basketball game against our arch-rivals, the Bettendorf Bulldogs. “If we can keep Bear from posting up and scoring, we should be win the game,” my friend Bryce analyzed. I responded, “We will need to shoot the three ball to have a chance, Bettendorf is a really good team”.
Today was the first basketball game of the season, and Hayden felt really good about this game he came out ready to play, and knew all the plays. They were playing Indiana Hoosiers, and everyone was saying that Hayden didn 't deserve to be on the college team he was on, but he just let it go and didn 't let them get to his head, so Hayden kept a positive attitude and played his hardest. Hayden didn 't really get the play he was on the team because he was good and because of his height. It was the last quarter and Hayden 's team had the ball so Lebron Jeffreys had the ball and Lebron went to pass to Hayden. Hayden was wide open because the defense went and trapped Lebron so Lebron threw it to Hayden and Hayden SLAMMED DUNKED it!
I stood in awe as I heard the crowd going insane. My teammates tackled me celebrating, leaving the ball in the back of the net and the goalie with her head between her hands. The scoreboard ticked the last few seconds away before letting out a sound of excitement that was prior a sound of disappointment. Losing in the sectional finals was devastating, but it motivated me in the off season. Coaches always say “we can learn from this loss” and I never took it seriously.
A leader is someone who takes charge when it matters the most. Even when the odds are completely against them they push on to reach their goal. The person I believe is a great leader is Wardell Stephen Curry II. Stephen Curry dreamed of going to the NBA and be just like his dad Dell Curry. Steph Curry was doubted all his life due to his size though.
So, you might be wondering how he transitioned from football to basketball that didn’t really happen until high school.

As a freshman he scored an average of 18 points. He then helped his team win the Division 3 state title scoring 25 points.
