Basketball

Basketball is my life

History-When my dad introduced basketball to me when I was in kindergarten. I was 5 years old at the time, my father entered me to play in a league with other players. I was the best player in my league when I joined. It was awesome though because the first play of the year I got the ball and made a layup right of the bat!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Conclusion

Passing-

 I knew I wasn’t always going to be the top scorer so I realized that you could also pass too. I used to be a really big ball hog. So then I became a really good passer and I took some shots because I can’t just pass all day. I usually got five to seven assists a game. In the leauge I played in i was always had the quickest and sharpest passes. It was also nice having teammates who could finish the basket so I would get an assist.

Dribbling-

 I am a point guard so I take the ball up the court and pass or shoot the ball. Sometimes teams do full court press, so I need good to be a good ball handler and dribble the ball up court  and  not  have  a turnover. When i was younger the refrees always let us travel and double dribble all the time. It was not important then but now thats all the call on us.                  

Conclusion-

Basketball is a big part in my life. If I didn’t have basketball in life I wouldn’t like sports as much because basketball was the first sport that was ever introduced to me. If there was no such thing of basketball I don’t think I would play sports as much. Basketball is a great family sport to watch. The best times to watch basketball are when the finals and playoffs are on.  

Truism-

What you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a basketball player. John Wooden mhttp://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/keywords/basketball.html#S7GCkBDfV5xGPuWj.99
