Moreover, I ran up and down every court after every loose ball and never let it go. I could not believe that I had forgotten the pleasure that I had with this ball.” Without you, I can’t survive,“ I said calmly while I fall asleep with embraced the ball with both hands. Since then, I had determined my dream that no matter what, I will be in the NBA player and prove Mr. Jonathan that I can be better, more athletic, and eligible to be a part of the greatest basketball league. The next day, I showed up at the Smith Park with my ball and the same NBA jersey. I met a 6’11 person.
It is commonly believed that coaches are around to teach and help individuals become better in everything they do. They are there to help learn about a sport or activity, build character, and be competitive. The coaches I had seemed to have been the opposite. Coach Savery and Coach Zaugg are former basketball coaches I have had; neither of them seemed basketball smart, they were both assholes in their own way, and neither of them acted like they cared about winning a game. Neither of them understood shit about basketball, Coach Savery did not seem to have the intellect that an individual should have to coach basketball.
In conclusion, basketball is a very complex and interesting sport that has a very interesting history, going from throwing soccer balls into peach baskets to the military playing to it being a world wide phenomena. In the end I think the history of basketball is a very interesting topic because there is so much that goes on with it that it is very hard to write a whole essay on it especially with a very busy
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.
I 'd say sports has helped me a lot with the way my body is right now. Sports is a way for me to get away from everything bothering me I could be mad or sad one day and I either have a game or I go outside and play basketball and I just think I 'm gonna be the best player at what I 'm doing right now and then if we win that makes it even better but if we lose that could make it worse because I hate it when I lose I am a very competitive person so if I lose I 'm one of those people who don 't wanna show respect to the other team cause I 'm mad but if we win I 'm a whole different person I 'm very cocky as well which makes people not like me that much as a sports player but it is who I am. I also have a loud mouth in sports I like to get under players skins by saying things like they don 't got it or they can 't do it or calling out their weaknesses which throws them off a little you can tell. I 'm just overall confident with my skills to do things most others wouldn 't like I lead off and I clap my hands to make the pitcher try and pick me off but then take off and not go back which is how I get my home runs by just keep running even if there 's a chance I can get out cause that 's how
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.
Before he started to play basketball his father was the first to encourage him to play the sport. Russell then started loving basketball and he was perfect for the sport over six feet five he would dominate the game. When Russell was in high school in his freshman year he didn't make the varsity team and breley made the junior varsity team.The next three years his team won state titles,he struggled to find playing time on the team but his Senior year he managed to gain a starting spot. By his senior year he didn't have college offers from no universities with his unorthodox style of playing.He would later gain a scholarship from the University of San
We were in the middle of a basketball game when Marissa threw me the ball. I tried catching the ball, but instead of catching the ball, it hit the tip of my middle finger. All at once, I feel my finger slowly but painfully collide will the ball. My eyes started to water and I was standing right in the middle of the court where everyone could see me. I felt so embarrassed because I thought everyone was looking at me.
Some guys and maybe even girls that happen to play a sport might have that certain goal that they are determined to reach and won't stop until it is achieved. For example, in basketball, whether it may be to make a certain amount of baskets or catching as many passes in one handed during practice. My goal started when I began to play basketball I wanted to be able to dunk, something about the ability to be up so high in the air and slamming the ball into the hoop with such aggression was so mesmerizing. Going to open gyms and not seeing alot of people with the ability to dunk the ball would give me that sense of relieve that soon I’ll be the only one to dunk the ball and everybody would look in awe. Took me to the end of my sophomore year to
I have so many things I would want to tell them, but if I could tell them three things I would say: “You can do anything you put your mind to,” “Cherish the moment,” and “Embrace change.” I would explain these three things through a basketball, football, and a textbook these are what I chose to put in my time capsule to best represent me and show my grandchildren the good and tough times in my life. Basketball is very important to me I cannot remember a time where I was not playing. The past two years of basketball for me have been amazing. My team went on to win two national championships, I won national Defensive POY, and I won all national 3rd team. The year before that, however no one saw this coming.
