This commitment to whatever I put my mind to is what makes me who am. I know that however good I am at something, whether it be a subject, sport, my job or club, that I can always do better. I love to be pushed, to go beyond what I ever thought I could achieve, to become better than I ever thought possible. I truly love playing basketball, I love the rush of accomplishing a goal I set for myself, for finally making 8 for 10 free throws after failing for so long. Basketball is not just a sport, but a metaphor for how I want to live my life.
From the 1980’s to 2002, even though many aspects of the playing style have gone in to new era, NBA’s style of playing basketball kept its heart the same. Professional basketball has usually kept its popularity with great stylish plays by the players. And style, which is defined as “the way in which something is said, done, expressed, or performed”, the league has maintained their unique game plays. The changes occurred when Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson changed the game during the 80’s to “guard dominantбп from боcenter domination” from the 70’s. “Magic and Bird excited the crowds with their new styles and spectacular plays, as they influenced the rest of the league to change into a league based on their styles of play.” (Levin) Then in 90’s Michael Jordan has showed the best basketball in the NBA’s history.
Playing basketball for more than a decade, I have come to realise that sports offer a great metaphor for life. Being a team sport, basketball has not only helped me learn to co-ordinate with others but it has also taught me the importance of taking initiatives and leading whenever necessary. During my law graduation, I have been actively involved in organizing and initiating student-run programmes which helped me acquire leadership and teamwork skills. Being a regular participant at debates and moot court competitions, I pioneered a Moot Court Initiative at my university with the desire to inculcate the culture of mooting within my juniors. I am also an active member of Debating Society which organises regular debating sessions for students, and orientation and practise sessions for the freshmen.
Kobe was passing first grade he had been doing real good in school and also been doing on the court, his parents were so proud of him because of how hard he had worked hard during the whole time he was stressing and did not let any of the stuff that was going on between them stop him. On the day of his first game he already knew that he was going to get the win because he and all of his teammates were ready to get busy on the court. Kobe had got a pep talk from his father about the pointers about basketball his dad was ready and believed in him and told him to keep playing and to never give and give it all he got. The coach thought that his dad was good at giving Kobe advice so Kobe 's coach asked the father if he wanted to join the coaching staff because he said that he would love to have him apart of
one day in 8th grade, for our unit we played basketball. We got all warmed up and ready to play but first we had to go through the instructions. I thought I would volunteer to help out the teacher, and show other people what to do and how to play. A few of us showed them how to pick spots on the court, some moves to do, and how to play. One other person and I showed them how to guard the player with the ball.

I wanted to play like him, live like him, and succeed like him. But, my love for this new game came in immediate conflict with my other love. My dad had played basketball for his entire young life and his whole high school career. I have heard countless stories of basketball from my dad, stories of triple doubles and overtime wins, and I wanted to have those experiences for myself. Naturally, his love for the game of basketball trickled down
I wore my favorite Rajon Rondo shirt, my velcro shoes, and an unwavering smile. That was the night I realized basketball was my passion. But, many season have come and gone and my years of playing draw fewer and fewer. Looking back, I think of all the things I could’ve done differently to just earn a few more years to play. If I just practiced harder that day or played better that tryout or that game.
Growing up there wasn’t a really anything to make me feel like me until the first day I picked up a basketball and actually knew what I was doing with it. Basketball has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I still hear the sound of shoes squeaking and the sound the ball makes going through the hoop after a perfect shot. The love that I have for the game has always been there but that day something changed for the better and I am grateful for that. When I look back and the special moments that have shaped my life this is the first one that always come first especially when I walk in to Apple Valley Middle School gym.

Something that I take much pride in is playing basketball. I personally think that I play at a high level and that I can compete very well against many people my age or a little older than me. Basketball has been my favorite hobby since I was in preschool. In the future, I will to work hard in school and go to a good college. After college I would like to have a job that includes sports.
The reason I picked Stephen Curry as the person I think is a good leader is because he has inspired me in more ways than one and he is also a great Christian person. He always has written, “I can do all things…” on his basketball shoes. Stephen Curry taught me that no matter how bad circumstances seem you should always try and you will reach your goal. Stephen Curry was in the exact situation I’m in right now. The summer of my sophomore year I decided to change my shooting form for the better.
Kevin Durant and LeBron James are two of the greatest basketball players to ever live. Both of these gifted athletes play in the NBA, and are idolized by thousands of people across the United States. Each of these players has a unique perspective on how they play the game of basketball. Kevin and LeBron are both amazing players, but they approach the game very differently. Kevin Durant uses him amazing shooting ability to carry his team to winning games.
However, is there such a thing as overly passionate? We all know that one coach who is a always riled up and energetic when he is coaching his team. That in itself is not a problem at all. It becomes a problem when the coach starts trying to live his dreams through his students. Some students are just playing for fun and the experience, and coaches have to learn how to deal with that!
