All of my friends were telling me to go and play for a team. I was just saying that I was not ready for a team yet and I needed a lot of work before that, but nobody knew the true reason. I was ashamed to tell to them that my dad didn't want me to go and play for a team just because his mind was always on the school and the books. "Basketball is not for you my son" he was always saying when I was begging him to let me go,"your... ... middle of paper ... ... better but it was so risky to play. I tried to, but I couldn't.

The coach cut him believing that Michael did not have enough experience and that he was too raw. Michael stated that it was embarrassing to not get a place on the team. Distressed, he refused to surrender himself (Brenner, Richard J 2). Michael began training continuously, constantly working on what he felt would make him a better basketball player, and he strived to prove his coach wrong. Every time he exercised and g... ... middle of paper ... ...d strive to be.

Men’s and Women’s Basketball Game As you know, basketball is a mens and womens sport, they also have a different style of play between each other too. Whenever I go to a basketball game, I always expect to see a great game it doesn’t matter what gender it is. Some may think that men play better, others may think women are. It’s a toss up on who plays better because the style of play is different. The agility and power are two main factors that play a role in this different style of play I mentioned.
Also, Pete father would say, “A good basketball player can make up for a lot if he has hands as fast as a gun fire” then he would get Pete to do a drill where held a basketball at the bottom of his neck and Pistol has to clap his hands in front of him then catch the ball when his father drops the basketball (Schroeder, 1991). Pete was not very successful when first trying this drill and so Pete’s mother told Pet’s father Press that it’s impossible and so the father completed this drill just to show his son that it was possible. Pete father just stayed on his son about confidence and the difference between thinking you can do something and knowing you could do something. Press Maravich believed that if you knew you could do something then most likely you would succeed at the task at
I am far from a sore winner but seeing the opposing team, who were disappointed and heavy-hearted, added to the many sensational feelings and thoughts running throughout my body. For most, basketball is just another sport or a pastime but to me, it is more than just a game. Basketball sets challenges for myself; there’s a great amount of pressure while playing. Am I going to drive to the basket for a layup or should I take the shot? Do I defend my opponent tightly or do I give her some space?
You can tell he is very cocky and boastful about his basketball playing ability. Also, when Coach Collins goes to visit him to try to get him on the team, he tells Brian that he was out of line for fighting with his players and that he must change his attitude if he wants to join the team. At the first game of the season, coach and the other players see Brian’s selfishness on the court first hand. Brian gets a technical foul and is very disrespectful to the referees, his coach and his teammates. Coach Collins finally meets Brian’s father, and from their conversation after the game, you can see that Brian’s selfish attitude stems from his father, “feeding the monster,” so to speak.
At the time he was on the Golden State Warriors, they needed to make the playoffs and to do this they needed Latrell. But to let him physically and orally assault his own coach and to get away with it, who knows what type of controversy this could bring to the basketball world. They had to do something with Latrell but what? If they suspended him, the team would have no chance of getting to the playoffs and, without the possibility of winning the basketball championship, which would mean a dramatic decrease of income on the behalf of the Warriors.
The movie does not do a good job of showing that Amir felt horribly guilty about what he did to Hassan. It portrays Amir as uncaring and selfish. The movie also changes the depiction of Amir as an adult. While the book shows Amir as a man who has not yet learned to stand for what is right until he comes face to face with his past all over again, the movie jumps the gun and shows the change earlier with the change of a scene. The scene that is changed is when Amir and Farid visit the orphanage where Sohrab is supposed to be.
