Paul George is an elite basketball player in the NBA, and he is one of the best players in the NBA today. He has won many awards and has been to many prestigious events where all the best players go and face off. He has a very important family and they all know how to cheer him up when he is down. He has faced many challenges in his life to get to where he is and no one has came in the way of what he achieved making it in the NBA. Many talk bad about him but the those are the people that don’t watch him or just like another player that he’s better than.
Even he didn’t win unanimous due to the fact that he was surrounded by great players that were worthy of winning the MVP. Furthermore, many players are being drafted at very young age in modern NBA. Players are being drafted at the age of 19 - 20 years old and have very little experience at the college level of basketball. When they join the NBA, they are not prepared to play at the high level. Sure, these players can improve in a couple of years but when you draft someone, you want them be good now, not in the next four years.
All the six games, at least scoring one basket, we got to the finals. Fourth quarter of the final game came. Our team was losing by two and there were around fourteen seconds remaining. I don’t know what the coach thought of but he decided to put me in when he had so many other options. The coach told me to stay in the three point line in order to shoot if I can.
They said he was too skinny and he was too fragile. So Kobe set out to prove everyone wrong. His freshman year his team went 4-20, but even then you could see Kobe’s love for the game and all of his potential. His Junior year Kobe led his team to the district championship game against their rival. Sadly they could not come out with a win.
Michael Jordan had to work so hard as a young adult to get to where he is now and it has made people see as an Allstar on and off of the court. Also all his determination to be a greatest role model has made his game much more aspiring to young athletes, and in his older age Michael is still continuing to to be the great role model that he once was as a NBA Allstar. Michael Jordan was possibly the best basketball player in the history of the National Basketball Association but he also was one of the most impactful role models to ever
A featured NBA columnist, Grant Hughes, for the Bleacher Report recently wrote an article about who are the best defenders in the NBA. The last four winners of the NBA Finals have all had someone from the top five on Hughes’s list, this clearly demonstrates the importance of good defenders (Hughes, 2014). Great defenders can also be your superstars, superstars can also fill the roles set for the role players. That was the case two out of the last three years with the Miami Heat, Lebron James was their superstar as well as their best defender. There is no team that has won the NBA Finals in the last fifteen years without having at least one high quality
Making it into the NCAA college basketball teams is a difficult commission and many high school basketball athletes have tried to accomplish that task. A quantity of high school athletes have succeeded and a majority of them have not. The issue concerning the NCAA athletes is that they are not being paid to play in these tournaments and games. They are not being paid to win, and to move on to play numerous other teams. With countless new players, the NCAA would have to pay the athletes different amounts of money depending on how long the athletes were on the teams.

Gavin was back the next day at practice and my spirit was dead. I’m thinking I’m not gonna ever get playing time so why bother caring so much and putting in all this energy when I could be helping the sophomore team that I actually play on. So over the course of the next week I didn’t really care as much about knowing everything for varsity and I still worked hard at practice but I could’ve given more. During, this ‘outburst’ the varsity games were closer than what they should be and the starters weren’t scoring as well or playing as

For Michael’s first championship in the finals in 1991, his team won the series easily in a 4-1 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers. For most of Jordan’s career, his team usually consisted of at least one other Hall of Famer, and for all of his championships, he had Scottie Pippen. In the 1998 NBA Finals, Pippen was robbed of the Finals MVP award, which they instead gave to Jordan. In game 4, he put up 28 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists, which was crucial in that game, which they won 86-82 against the Utah Jazz. To have a teammate like Pippen, who averaged 17.5 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 5 assists per game in the playoffs, made it easier for Jordan to succeed in the finals.
If players had to stay for two years the quality of basketball the quality of basketball would undoubtedly be better. Yes, players want to get to the next level as fast as they can, but but if they had to stay for two years instead of one, college basketball would even more fun to watch. Imagine that Brandon Ingram was staying for his sophomore year, and Harry Giles is playing at Duke his Freshman year. They would be so fun to watch, and they would not be the only team like that. It would be fun watching these players grow individually and as a team.
“I’ve failed over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed” (MJ). Michael with no doubt left the NBA as one of the greatest players to ever play the game of basketball. Now the question I’m gonna answer is who is better between Jordan and Kareem. Both players are well known players on and off the court but when it comes down to the best of the best MJ wins. Michael Jordan is a superior player to kareem because of his success on and off the court.
