Now my thing is what’s the odds of getting hurt in college basketball and not being able to play in the NBA? You worked your whole life to be on the top of the world and now you 're going down hill, all because of a injury. That 's my whole point, if you just could have entered the draft straight out of high school, probably none of this never would have happened. Now you’re thinking “all my recruiters are gone” and my chances of living the perfect dream is dead now. The odds of getting injured and not being able to play basketball is a good 50 percent because either you can get hurt and not go through therapy because it’s difficult or don’t give up and come back even stronger.
Moreover, basketball taught me that if I try my best, my efforts will pay off. I learned that this lesson does not only apply to basketball, but also to all areas of my life. If I could go back to the past, I would definitely make the same commitments to
Just one super day or hour or even just one great play that is seen by just one coach or even a friend of a coach could lead to a full-ride college scholarship. If you can jump out of the gym, believe me, the coaching world will hear about you. Campers should arrive at camp in tip-top shape. The coaches will give little attention or time to a player who is out of shape. At least know and use basic basketball skills.
I got better with practice lots and lots of practice. Blood sweat and tears were put into the game for me to get over. Every better Literally. It all paid off in the end because I got much better. But at the time I did would not see any need for it.
I learned the drills they ran and competition I had, so I worked hard and got a lot better. This year I was way more prepared so I did a lot better in tryouts.
As I said, I was never great at basketball, but my team was. I played for the Greenbelt Rec team where everyone was pretty good, but I wasn’t. My coach, Andy, was great and very encouraging and he made me feel like I was the best, even if I did horribly. I felt like a star, until I turned ten and my coach was Damon. Damon made everyone feel bad about themselves, especially those not in his starting five.
When watching the basketball game on TV I saw dressed up, overly passionate and physically attractive fans. While watching the rugby game in person I notices a plethora of different people because I was not looking through the lens and was able to see the crowd as a whole. The main thing I was able to take away from this assignment is that even though sports are meant to look all-inclusive but in actuality that is not always the case. Sports automatically breed aggression and violence among the fans and emphasis physical appearance on TV. I have never before viewed sports as a microcosm of society but after comparing and examining them it became clear that a lot of what happens in a sports game happens in society.
In this day and age indentured servitude seems to be lurking around each corner, and it especially hangs out in the NCAA. The NCAA has refused to pay their all-star basketball players that bring in billions of dollars for both the NCAA, and their universities “These Athletes now make more than $8 billion in revenue for the NCAA, and member universities, with no tangible compensation for their labor” (Take 2: Why College Basketball Players Should Demand To Be Paid To Play). Now, like what was stated before, the universities are also cashing out on players, the apparel department of each college is making quite the pretty penny off of the names on the jerseys. With the NCAA and colleges benefiting on the players’ hard effort on the court, it’s time the players take a share of the revenue and start benefiting
My first point which shows sympathy in Hunchback In The Park is that the Hunch back does not fit in a class because of his disability. This point is backed up by "slept at night in a dog kennel". That quote is showing that he is almost in the same class as a dog, this quote is also showing isolation as he has he can't go anywhere else because of how cruel the society is. Society is cruel towards the Hunchback because of his disability. The author is referring back to isolation and poverty as he is homeless because of what he looks like, the author is referring back to poverty as the Hunchback had to sleep in a dog kennel because he had nowhere else to go.
In other words, they were allowed to walk all over the floor without being called for traveling. Next, the refs started to call the most ridiculous fouls known to mankind against us. The most prominent foul in that quarter was the technical foul against Laraiah. This was by far the most ludicrous call I have ever witnessed in my entire basketball playing career. The ref that charged Laraiah with the technical foul had his back turned to her when he blew the whistle.
I mean like every practice they have or every game they have he is swearing in every single one and I don’t get why because the player are good athletes and, they play good basketball he just wants things done his way not any other way but
“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”.
One of them was when Harlan was angry at himself for missing two free throws that almost made his team lose. Harlan wanted to cry and he was really beating himself up for it. Another example is when Harlan thought that he could never became a good center in basketball. He was really struggling with his game and in his mind he wanted to quit. In,”Angel Park Hoop Stars 3”, the point of view was written in 3rd Person Limited because you the reader could only know the thoughts and feelings of Harlan.
It affected my self esteem and confidence when I would look at my belly. The stretch marks and rolls were very apparent. Although, I acknowledged my flaws, I’ve never let that keep me down. I’d always try to keep up with people that were in better shape than me. It wasn’t that difficult for me because I was fat and athletic.
