As Ashley Graham once said, “College basketball was one of the hardest, most rewarding experiences of my life. Every single day on the court was a mental and physical challenge.” College Basketball has the better games because it is the player’s only chance of going all the way to the NBA or WNBA, and due to the slim chances of making a starting lineup in the pros, players give everything they’ve got into the sport.
Every time I shot the basketball, my attempt was far from accurate. As I watched my teammates accomplish basic skills that I could not complete, I began to believe I had little value to the team. My confidence in my abilities to master sporting skills decreased significantly. Due to my beliefs in not being good enough, I gave into quitting. In a matter of four years, I managed to participate in and quit five different sports.

Team Sports Argument Have you ever wondered what it 's like to have a person of the other gender join your sports team? I play basketball and personally I would hate for boys to play with us.

Some leaders of a community confine others who are different from them, conveying their intolerance; this usually creates more conflict and perpetuates negative opinions. The article “In the City of Brotherly Love” is a clear example of this.

Since they are looked down upon and given no control regarding their rights (including education, religion, and employment),
