Assef did deserve what he got, as Hassan threatened to hit him in the eye with the slingshot in the past when they were all children, in order to protect him and Amir. Now that they are adults, Hassan’s threat to Amir has in a way, extended, to his next of kin, and Sohrab was like an extension of Hassan’s will to protect Amir, as he shot Assef in the eye when he was assaulting Amir. Assef also assaulted Hassan in the past, and Sohrab shooting him in the eye is a way to avenge his father for how he treated Assef in the past. Amir did deserve what he gets, as he was unable to muster his courage in the past and stand up to Assef, regardless of the repercussions that he may receive. In addition, Amir also distances himself from Hassan after
Did you know that Michael Jordan averaged about thirty points a game, and retired with six NBA championships.

While some believe that athletes should have their own choice at making a decision to go pro straight out of high school, they should not do so because they will not be able to manage their million dollar contracts respectively. Speaking of contracts, the NBA should eliminate guaranteed contracts for rookies drafted in the first round of the NBA draft. They should do this because a careless high school kid, could just go into the draft not knowing, or caring on how much they are going to make, with the lack of experience on handling millions of dollars. This is very unrepsonsibible for a teenager, and not only for the high school athlete, but also for the basketball association as well. This is because of there noncommitment to have these players
