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.
I started to practice at my house—it was the only hoop available for me at the time. Everyday, I would go outside and just shoot as many shots as I can so, I could make my form better. A few weeks of practicing, I started to see progress in my form—I made more shots than usual. Since I thought I was getting better, I decided to ask my parents if they could put me in a basketball team. My parents agreed without any hesitation.

My family has been supporting me for basketball and has always believed in me and they say,” You just put all your effort in and hustle out there and play good defense.” I have been playing for 7 years, so that impacts because i get more experience for playing basketball, so i get better. Also, it’s been a impact on me because even my friends were supporting me when you make a shot or steal and take a charge in basketball.

I remember the first game of the season I didn’t play the whole game, and I

Without basketball and the support Junior received from the students and teachers at the school. The author would not have been able to use basketball to help lead Junior towards his purpose. In a critical essay an interviewer asks Sherman Alexie, “it's interesting that you mention that it [basketball] is as important as it is in inner-city black urban life, because as I was reading The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, I noticed a lot of similarities between the cultures, not only the emphasis on basketball but also motifs that appear in a lot of African-American fiction like racial profiling, marginalization and ghettoization” (James Mellis). James Mellis asks Sherman Alexie about basketball and why basketball is really emphasized in this novel.
I had to come to the realization that my basketball career was over, and that he would never coach me again. My face showed hysterical crying and his hug was the only comfort that could provide any sympathy. The players came into the room and saw the redness in my eyes and wet cheeks and consoled me with compassionate hugs that I will never forget. Minutes later, I laid across the backseat of my mom’s car being pulled away from my independent easy-going lifestyle and being taken to my new life for the upcoming
When I was in elementary school I want to get in to our basketball team because during that time I really like to play basketball. I was playing with friend during break time and sometimes after school. Compare to others I am really new to basketball and many other students were played more than me.

The trial is for everyone and all the people who like to play basketball could join.
Last year I played basketball for the Bath team and Red Cedar team. In my last game I had 24 points, over 10 rebounds, and 5 blocks. After the game the opposing coach came up to me and asked if I wanted to join an AAU team and at the time I didn’t know what that was. He gave me his number and I learned that AAU was a league for really good basketball players. “Are you really serious about basketball?” said my Dad “Yes Dad, I’m sure” I said “Then let’s call the coach” said Dad Then we called the coach and started going to practice.

The doctor believed that Perez experienced a severe panic attack that possibly stopped her heart activity when she collapsed the night she was suspected of being possessed by an evil spirit.
