College basketball player should be paid for these reasons they put their bodies at risk, they don’t have money, and they skip classes for basketball.
MJ’s pro career began in the 1984 NBA draft, when the bulls selected him third overall after Sam Bowie and Hakeem Olajuwon. Jordan quickly improved the Bulls franchise by generating more wins and winning rookie of the year. The young rookie also won gold in the 1984 Olympics on the men’s national team. Due to Michael Jordan’s unmatched talent, a great abundance of individuals gained interest in the game of basketball (Legends Profile: Michael Jordan). In 1985, Michael Jordan signed with Nike and created the first of over thirty Air Jordan models, the Air Jordan 1, which would forever alter the sneaker culture (Michael Jordan Timeline).
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.
James Naismith was the one who invented basketball in 1891. He invented the game when he was working at the YMCA, training school in Springfield, Massachusetts. Dr. Naismith had been challenged to create a new game that could be played indoors in the cold winters of Massachusetts to provide an athletic distraction to disruptive group of students. With a two-week deadline Dr. Naismith decided to invent a game of skill, finesse, and accuracy, rather than one that relied on pure strength. He was inspired by a game he had played as a child called, “ Duck on a Rock,” in which players lob a small rock at a duck placed on top of a large rock in an attempt to knock off the duck.
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.
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.
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.
The 1960’s Celtics Basketball Team Do you remember the years of the Boston Celtics in the 1960’s. Well if you don’t they were one of the best teams in the 1960’s time period. The Celtics were in their prime times in 60’s and won 4 straight championships in the previous 6 seasons. The Celtics were also known for the best defensive team in the 60’s. They also introduced more African American players on their team.
It all came down to the second to last game of the hockey season. The playoffs started and we had made it onto the semi-finals. The whole team began to warm up for the biggest game of the season. Everyone knew the magnitude of the game and what had to get done in order to win.
Pure fear can be experienced in a vast amount of ways, especially in a high stakes, hyped up college football game. Florida was supposed to play LSU in early October when Hurricane Matthew hit, postponing the game. The entire LSU staff and players were talking trash and saying that Florida was too scared to play them. Eventually, this resulted in Florida to have to play in LSU in the second to last game of the season. Even more so, if Florida won this game they would be the SEC champs.
