NBA coaches want the most skilled players there are. Yes, I know the players are already good enough to have one year in college then go to the NBA. Players can even get better by playing more years in college so they could maybe start and get more playing time in the NBA. Playing basketball in college could help in the future. Also when you graduate college and go to the NBA with teammates or other players have played against them or with them in college, and then in the NBA you would already know them.
It’s exciting sport because it could come down to the wire and a kid could hit a three for the win. Also, it’s exciting because you never know what could happen in a basketball game, your team could be winning by 10 then the other team comes back and is winning by one and the other team is on fire and energized.
Air ball— again. My form was lost, coordination gone, and so was my patience. I’ve stopped playing basketball for 3 months mainly because of school work and things going on in my life. I was determined to get my skills back no matter how long it’ll take. I started a game of basketball with other people inside the gyms court.
Ana Cecilia Roque Luna Mr.Young English 01/11/18 An Elite Journey The author of An Elite Journey is Michael Massucci. An Elite Journey is based on Massucci’s basketball experience as a coach for basketball. Massucci has coached high school varsity teams for 20 years. The fact that the author had various years of coaching allowed the real intensity of the game to be presented with nerve- racking last -minute game -winning shots. Coach Massucci also wasn’t only focused on winning in the game but in real life.
Basketball is one of the most competitive sports in North America. Not only do I play because of the competitiveness but it also gives me good exercise, increases your hand-eye coordination ability, and trains you to focus more. Basketball is a sport which requires a lot of focus. When I Play basketball, I have to focus on my surroundings, my teammates, weak points in their defense etc. Studies show that playing Basketball helps you focus more in school.
With this in mind, I joined the high school 's track team my freshman year for the indoor track season. Nothing could have prepared me for how rigorous the practices were. I suddenly felt extremely inferior and disappointed that I could not even make it through the warm ups let alone the actual practice. Team overall was very friendly but the upperclassmen
I love watching basketball, and I 've always wanted to play it. In middle school though my sports were Cross Country and Track, so I have basically zero experience with any kind of team sports (the only exception would be the stuff in PE). I actually went to the state championship in the 100m in middle School so I am a fairly athletic guy (about 10 pounds heavier now though). Guys at my schools play pickup basketball once a week during free time in gym and I 've been trying to join in, but I just have absolutely no idea what I should be doing while on offense. I actually am a decent rebounder and usually score a few points a game from offensive rebounds.
“Why can’t we get into our freaking offense! ?” This is all I really remember from Coach McKendrick at halftime last year against Niles North in what was a tough night for our basketball team. Prior to this, we beat New Trier at home and then went on the road and beat the pre-season unanimous vote to win conference, Highland Park, in our first conference game. Before the New Trier game, our game plan was simple: we were smaller, but faster, so we were going to run the court and make this is a fast pace game. We executed our gameplan, and we won.
This is because the athletes that come to the university are now a walking advertisement. If a school sends many multiple people pro in sports every year then they will be more likely to land the big name recruits and therefore the school will make money off of that player helping his team to a championship. These are all reasons why college athletes should be paid. To conclude, college athletes deserve more. Yes they are given scholarships, yes they are given an opportunity to change their situation and their future.
