At the moment I am watching basketball games, and when I have some free time, I go and shoot some ball. I devoted my self to studying, and one day I will own a basketball team. I know that I can do it because I have a" hart of steel" and I will fight until my other dream comes true. I can never go away from basketball, so by owning a team I will be in basketball again. This could be a good example and a good motivation to those who want to follow their hearts and their instincts.
Just like in my everyday life I try to set goals for myself to reach at a certain point. In basketball, I set goals for myself as well. For example, in 2015, I made goals for myself to dunk the basketball by July 31st, 2015. The reason that motivated me for this goal was that a lot of my friends were already dunking the basketball; meanwhile I was one of the few who could not. I created the goal for myself in March, 2015.
My future would be very different if my dad never bought me my first basketball when I was very young. I wouldn’t have been able to start most of my friendships and I wouldn’t be going to Walnut Hills. I still have my first basketball but it has had a great deal of damage done to it now. Everytime I see a basketball I reminisce of the memories of my friends, my dad, my school, and most of all my childhood. Basketball taught me a life lesson and that lesson is the best friends you can have are the ones you share interests with.
More importantly, participating in basketball helped me develop better friendships with people that I already knew. The first day of practice I knew almost everyone on my team from school and have talked to them, but never really got to know them. Playing with them helped me find the true personalities of these kids. The most important way that participating in basketball helped socially, was the fact that I met an abundance of new people. Every time that I started a new recreational basketball season there were always some new kids that I had never met.
I play basketball, not only because it gives me a source of exercise, but it also allows me to be engaged in a competitive atmosphere again. To play basketball, you start knowing little and learn from your coach a lot more.

Paraplegics might have never been given the opportunity to participate in one of the best sports in history. Basketball has given people with disabilities the hope of a normal life. It has given them the ability to engage in such a physical activity that would let them compete against people just like themselves. In contribution to the integration of college sports and the formation of the NWBA, basketball has acted as an outlet for those troubled children who grew up living a hard life. As you can see, throughout history, basketball has made a huge impact on our society today and it has helped many people grow into someone they never thought they could be.
Naismith, Chamberlain, Winter, and others had been incorporated into a basketball pantheon by the public. They were part of the public consciousness, but only in a supporting role. The game of basketball itself was lifted above them all, the true source of the passion. Before I was ten years old I had seen this passion at its peak. The NCAA Tournament of 1988 turned out to be a great showcase of Kansas and Big 8 basketball.
