“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”.
People from China not only heard about his perfection for basketball, they also heard about his perfection for baseball. Hayden played for a basketball team called Michigan Clippers; and a baseball team called the Miami Heat. Hayden 's basketball team was 47 and 0 meaning that they have won 47 games and lost 0 games.

Basketball Shot Turns Deadly In Memphis The gym is supposed to be a place where you can go to work out, let off frustration or stress in a positive manner, and perhaps relax in a sauna or hot tub.

Vicdarrius Pollard just graduated from Kirby High School. He was excited about his gym membership at this particular LA Fitness Center because it had an indoor basketball court and because it was the first thing he purchased as an adult according to his aunt, Pamela Poole.

The time I almost got cut from the basketball team.the first day of tryouts I didn’t come because I didn’t have my physical at the time.but when I got it I was there and lots of people were and only fifteen could qualify. On the first day all we had to do was shoot and show our form. But we did do something a little fun you had to get a partner and perform some moves on him. So the coach said “go” me and my partner which was Robert. Raced down the basketball court.
To start off, I was born on August 21st, 1936 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During my youth, I honestly didn’t like basketball because I thought the sport was “for sissies.” I was more of a track and field child. But I later ended up falling in love with the game mostly because basketball was the most popular sport in Philadelphia. Shortly after, I attended Overbrook High School and scored over 2,200 points. Then I moved my way on to the University of Kansas to play basketball,
I was back to serve and the score was 18-18, it was all tied up. I got ace off of my jump float. I kept getting aces and by the time it was 24-18, I was still back to serve and the pressure was on me; I didn’t want to miss, but I knew if I did it wouldn’t be the end of the world. I made it over and they returned it and I went up to set the outside. When Lauren got the kill I jumped off my feet we had one the second game and we were so pumped I had a pretty good feeling we were going to
For example, John Wooden, a basketball player that went to the University of California once said, "It 's not how big you are, it 's how big you play." How you play is something that can either bring excitement to the sport or, if you don’t play with passion and go one hundred percent, how boring you are to watch. For the NCAA there are 351 teams in just Division 1 with each team offering 13 scholarships per year. Coming out to about 4,511 players fighting to make a team, and hopefully make it to the professional leagues. For most kids, this is their only shot of doing something amazing with their life, so they play with passion
He was one of many to be put in the wall of fame for his talent. It is very unbelievable that he is still active but he retired his basketball career. He also is still currently alive and making the best of his life. Two years in a row the Milwaukee Bucks selected Kareem to be on their team. He quickly understood the way pro-gaming was played.
Lessons from basketball have positively impacted all areas of my life. In my work and in my education, I am a team player. When my courses seem tough, I push through and do not give up. I am committed to my school work, my family, and my friends. Though basketball may step aside as a friend in my college years, it has shaped who I am for life, and my story is only complete when you understand the role this friend has
Other teams, parents and coaches gathered around to watch this “David and Goliath” match. The first two sets blew right by us and we won it with ease. Now, all we had to do was play the third and final set and were going home champions. Something, however; shifted in the other team, as we started to realize that they wanted to win just as badly as we did. It took us by shock how much they improved their skills by one game, and before we knew it we lost the third set.
Have you ever had a failure to that ultimately turned into a success for you? My failure was when I had a basketball game in Conway, Arkansas. It was the championship game of the night that everybody wanted to see including myself because I was hype and ready to play. The tip-off had begun at seven o’clock at night. My team got the tip-off.
This first really hit me hard during my 8th grade year. Our class was assigned to complete a job shadow to help figure out what we wanted to become in the future. When thinking to myself about this I knew exactly what I wanted to do for a living. The teacher for this class, Mr. Doug Sickles, asked each student to say what they wanted to be to him and the class. As it was my turn to speak, I said the only thing I wanted to do was play professional basketball.
