It was the first time I really felt like I was making a difference on a team. I was finally getting the opportunity to prove myself and I was doing it . From that point on I was confident in my ability and I haven’t doubted myself since. It truly was a turning point for
Fourth quarter of the final game came. Our team was losing by two and there were around fourteen seconds remaining. I don’t know what the coach thought of but he decided to put me in when he had so many other options. The coach told me to stay in the three point line in order to shoot if I can. The game resumed, I went from corner to corner waiting for the ball.
Something funny that came out of that was when Darrall was deep in foul trouble, 4 fouls on only Chamberlain, he shouted at one of the referees “ Well, why don’t you just give the guy [one] hundred and we’ll all go home!” Sure enough he did just that. After Wilt had heard that he was going hard for the triple digits. Because of this very game the NBA had changed the lane (paint) from twelve feet wide to sixteen feet wide. With the third quarter coming to an end, Wilt racked twenty-eight, adding on to his 41 is 69 points from just the three quarters he’s been in.
There is 1 minute left to play and we have the ball in hand. I quickly move out of my zone and the coach is really confused because I don’t shoot from the 3 point line. That was just an underestimate of where I was able to shoot out. My teammate hands me the ball and I have 30 seconds left to shoot. I stall for about 10 seconds then I stop and shoot.

On a hot, sunny day of June I went to the park and played in a 5 on 5 basketball tournament with a few friends I have been playing basketball with since the 3rd grade. We didn’t have many people with height our tallest guy was just about 6’2 but that didn’t stop us from setting a goal to win this tournament and show no weakness to the other teams. We had the talent, the heart, and the discipline to push ourselves and to try and win this tournament. We started warming up on half of the court while our first competitors in the orange jerseys warmed up on the other half, the official finally blew the whistle and told us to get our starting 5 ready and on the court.
The dynamics of a game of basketball very well correspond with the adversities I faced, hurdles I overcame and achievements I made in life. On my first experience as a professional player, with the entire stadium packed with players, coaches and basketball lovers I became extremely nervous and missed a couple of shots. The shots I missed cost my team dear and made me so apprehensive that I could not even attempt another basket. However nebulous it might seem but it was this and many such experiences that played a vital role in making me the individual that I am. Playing basketball for more than a decade, I have come to realise that sports offer a great metaphor for life.

A NBA ball court has to be 94 feet and 50 feet wide just like a college basketball court, so there is a little bit in common with college and NBA basketball from high school and college basketball is that in NBA you can’t stay in the paint for no longer than 3 seconds which would be a turnover on your teams allowing the other team to have the ball. The very first NBA game was played on “ November 1, 1946, in Toronto, Canada”, and what would be the start of one of the best sports ever played. Like in college basketball, there is a shot clock but in the NBA the shot clock has to be set at 24 seconds.
The Cavaliers, the best team in the Eastern Conference three years in a row, were not embarrassed by the Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals, but did narrowly avoid a sweep by shooting so efficiently that they set historic highs and broke records— they lost the series 4-1. First thoughts after that the Finals have ended was how amazing and dominant the Warriors were, are, and how the Cavs kept every game extremely close, but now we aren’t seeing the same Cavaliers team, instead we are seeing a Kyrie-less
