However, the speaker says, “most of us remember anyway [emphasis added]” (22). This alludes to the fact that the entire town has memories of Flick as a high-school basketball star, and most likely view his current situation with pity. The word “anyway” shows that Flick’s attempts at humor, and deflecting attention from his current position, do little to distract townspeople from recollections of Flick at his teenage prime. His hands are both “fine and nervous” (23) on a lug wrench; “fine” suggests they once had the magic touch, and “nervous” signifies Flick is not comfortable in his current job, at least not in the way he was on the basketball court. The final stanza takes us to Mae’s Luncheonette.

In my explanation, I discussed that he was testing his brother one last time, to see if he can trust him to play legitimately. You don’t let someone beat you a few times, just to score a win. At least from your brother anyway. If you can only win by cheating, someday you will be shot. Everything will catch up to you, and I think Booth knew this.
In Everyone Can Write, Peter Elbow explains how “to fail or be kicked out is unthinkable.” (7) This idea is solidified in the core of every person. Nobody desires failure and it is one of man’s greatest fears. From this fear comes a drive that compels people to put in the work and effort so that they will never have to experience the terrible feelings that accompany it. Furthermore, one excellent example of how defeat can push someone into greatness lies in the history of the world’s greatest basketball all-star, Michael Jordan. During Jordan’s early high school years, he was cut from his school’s basketball team.
The dilemma on whether this is all morally right has come up numerous times. Anderson is constantly questioning Colonel Graff on whether or not he is taking the isolation with Ender too far. Colonel Graff deliberately separated all the other boys in his launch group from Ender. Ender stuck out like a sore thumb in his launch group because the boys always felt inferior to him due to what Colonel Graff told them. They ignored him and looked at him differently because of it.

Junior states, "I mean I'd always been the lowest Indian on the reservation totem pole -- I wasn't expected to be good so I wasn't." But eventually that changed for him. As Junior realizes he isn't going to go anywhere from the reservation he wants to make a change. Leaving the reservation was a serious matter; almost as if you're rejecting what the reservation has to give. After talking to his dad junior starts to attend Rearden High School, the high school that is 22 miles from the reservation in a white town.
Secondly, when Bernard and John (director's son) started talking and how John started saying that he always felt isolated and rejected, partly because his mother slept with so many men and partly because the people of the village never accepted him, in fact he started complaining on how because he is white that he wasn't allowed to do any Indian rituals or cultural things just like any other Indian "but they wouldn't let me. They disliked me for my complexion. It's always been like that. Always" John said (pg 111).
There is a saying in Africa, “Don’t make decisions about us, without us!” Andrew Jackson did not talk to the Indians before he made a bad decision which cost the lives of 4,000 Indians and dislocated 46,000 others. At the same time, the settlers weren’t happy with the Indian Removal Act process, it was too slow for them. “The policy was enacted with remarkable speed, but not fast enough to satisfy whites in the South and Southwest.” (p.331) Jackson's Democracy was always cast for the benefit of white men, it didn't even include white

Mr. Crawford’s dream of being a published author got destroyed when he was younger so now, he doesn’t
They had a very selfish player that had almost half of their points. So we figured if we just lock him up when knew we were gonna win. He scored about 5 more points to start the 3nd half so by that time i just started guarding him. I knew he was weak minded and just wanted to shoot over me so i was just gonna be aggressive with him the whole time. He finally got me in the open court and everyone cleared out it was just me and him in the backcourt.
The sideline triangle is formed by a post player, like Shaquille O’neal that 's why he dominated for most of his years in the post with the Lakers. The spacing stretches the defense both sides and it creates a lot of problems for help defense and trapping players. The Golden State Warriors ran more of a motion offense, they move around and screen for each other and help others create shots. Having the best PG and SG on your team doesn 't hurt either making shots from 40 feet and
The Smoove twins Chris and Jrue have played outstanding Trevon and Andre were playing good as well but Robert and Tyron weren 't playing that good so we needed one more good guy to make this team great... And I was that guy. We won every game but one without me, the one game we lost was to the Honeybadgers. The team we were playing in the championship. The Honeybadgers have never lost, they won every single game and every single championship since our league started in 1972. (You do the math because I 'm
