The other players naturally wanted to work together to win basketball games.

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.
He showed the coach he could hang with the varsity players after he fought hard against Gordy. The coach said Junior was one of the best shooters he has ever seen.

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.

How he admires the game itself and then telling how they made it into the champion ships.

“CLANK, CLANK, CLANK.” Yuyi had been preparing for tryouts via jumpshot on the rusting steel basketball hoop occupying the nearly perfect courtyard. His prayers for sunken shots were being answered with bricks; not the beautiful red ones that occupy your local fire department but the ones that make a harsh buzzing noise when the ball hits the side of the rim. Watching Yuyi assault the rim with his horrid form made me feel uneasy. Not only was he a better player than me, but in that moment I remembered the past three years of unsuccessful tryouts. The process of failure had become repetitive; getting home from school, getting the phone call that I had not made the team,, and then my parents poorly comforting me.

Although he is suppose to be teaching the boys about basketball, He tends to boys how to be men. When talking to the boys Father Flynn says, “I’ve noticed several of you guys have dirty nails.
Anthony --- or Ant, as he prefers to be called --- doesn’t love everything about the mean, harsh streets of East Cleveland, but its his home. However, when things take a turn for the really, really worse, he accepts the scholarship offer he’s gotten from a fancy boarding school in Maine and heads there for his freshman year of high school. Ant knows it will be a major adjustment, but some of the changes aren’t exactly the ones he expects. For one, everyone wants to call him Tony. For another, they all believe he can play basketball because I guess he 's black, even though he’s short and prefers football.
In the documentary during the Championship, Akron Shooting Stars vs. the California All Stars in eighth grade Little Dru was about 4’6 and short. People would pick on him because he was shorter than others. However, he learned that you don 't have to be the same as other people do the same as them. When people would pick on him and call him names, it wouldn’t bother him because he knew that they were just trying to make him feel bad and then it would make him depressed or upset at the game, yet Little Dru did not let it bother him. LeBron James and the players learned a lot of lessons during their basketball career.

The Boston College Point shaving scandal was put together by Tony and Rocco Perla during the summer of 1978, before the college basketball season would start. At the time they put this together, they were small time gamblers. Rick Kuhn, a friend of Rocco 's from when the two were in high school together, was recruited to take part in the plan.

Kuhn 's job, through his play on the court, was to make sure that the Eagles did not cover the spread.
