The other players naturally wanted to work together to win basketball games. To add, humans are neither good nor bad at birth; we become who we are as a result of our experiences which makes sense because one of the meaner teammates had experienced a lot of poverty and violence growing up. The characters were also free, rational, and social people; they had a choice to be on the basketball team and a few refused when Carter had first arrived. Coach Carter seemed very strict in the beginning since he laid out contracts for each player to sign. This was almost like a constitution.
Inside the chapter there are different sections that talk about different things. Which is also the reason why it’s the least effective chapter because the ending of the sections of the chapter don’t lead you into the next section and that the section itself are full with unorganized information that was just put there for you to read. For an example the first section talks about how the guy is going to coach the team. Describe the players and the lack of skills they have in basketball. How he admires the game itself and then telling how they made it into the champion ships.
That is the goal for you. When a new guy comes into the league who might be a little too skinny and will probably be pushed around when he tries to post up, the teams always put them on a basketball weight training program to add some solid muscle weight.
In this world today, every kids dream is to make it out there city, to do something special they truly love, but it seems like it’s something always holding them back from overcoming their dreams. Well the question is what is possibly holding kids back from overcoming the perfect dream, and one of those things is the right to come out of highschool to play in the NBA instead of taking one year of college. Now I 'm not saying you shouldn’t go to college to play college basketball but I believe kids that are highly skilled should be able to go in the NBA without attending college, if they wanted to make the decision. To play basketball on the highest level, it takes hard work, time, and determination to make it in the NBA but a lot of people

Because basketball at this level and many other levels is a “shoe dollar” business and 100% player oriented, teams and coaches are stuck chasing after teenage players when things go astray resulting in single minded players only concerned about themselves and their own future. Players of this genre, willing to sign away the representation of their own brand, themselves, are not found on the Hoop Masters’ hardwood. Not because the players at Hoop Masters don’t have enough talent or aren’t stereotypical Division 1 players, but because, these players have a true love and passion for the game, which has been instilled in them since working with Coach Fischer. It is through this passion that keeps Hoop Masers afloat, which is why John Fischer has never succumbed to the temptation of shoe dollars and never will. From my own personal experience, successful businesses, like Hoop Masters, provide the players with a home and a family that some of them may be yearning for.

LeBron James and the players learned a lot of lessons during their basketball career.

Wooden had amazing off court achievements, he dominated the court, and he shared the 12 lessons of leadership. If he kept glancing at the scoreboard the real question would be, who is John Wooden? He defiantly wouldn’t be the man he is today.
