The sport of basketball is known as a fun past time for any person young or old. Basketball is a great way of exercise and a great way to have fun with friends and possibly make some new ones. I love to watch and play the game; basketball is a very entertaining sport and can be played by anyone. Seeing all the cool three-pointers and dunks and jumps makes it look incredibly difficult where it is not. Basketball in my opinion is the best thing I can do with my friends to have fun while burning a few calories. I see basketball as an easy way to have fun rather than sitting on the couch all day playing video games or watching television. One reason I love basketball is because you need only yourself to play the game or, you can play with teammates. You meet tons of people and you are able to play with your friends for hours without getting one thought of boredom. Basketball is not just basketball. We end up thinking how the other person is going to move and we prepare for that, we have to consider each person’s capabilities and strike when he is least expecting it.
Sounds like war? Yes, it is!!!!! We can’t stop until we have beaten the other team. Thus it can get aggressive and exciting. Another reason would be that this has to be the COOLEST game on the planet. Anyone who plays it looks incredibly cool as well Basketball to me is overall the best sport out of all of the other sports such as cricket, soccer, and football. I also believe out of all these sports basketball is the best sport to watch on television because when you watch it you can take the moves you see the professional’s perform and add them to your style of play. I take many of my moves from professional basketball players and make them my own because they expand my arsenal of tricks. For example, I try to do three-pointers and slam dunks that I see on TV. It is what makes this game even cooler. Cuz then your friends are like, “Wow u just did the same move as Allen Iverson… Wow you did the slam dunk as Michael Jordan!” There are a variety of tricks the players perform during games it makes the games much more enjoyable to be watching.
My favorite player to watch is Kobe Bryant. (MALLI, change to whomever you want) He makes basketball look so easy. He is an all around athlete is still going strong at 30 years old. He is a big role model to many kids who enjoy playing this sport. Kobe can do anything he is a very versatile player and could get anywhere around the court in a blink of an eye. Bryant is the definition of all-around in my book. He knows how to play both sides of the game offense and defense. I look at Kobe Bryant as the ultimate weapon. I highly doubt I’ll ever be as tall as him, but I want to play like him as I continue to get better and better every time I play basketball. Kobe makes the game much more enjoyable to watch because of his acrobatic shots and stunning defense. Basketball is my favorite sport of all-time. There are just endless possibilities when it comes to the thought of basketball. I just can’t stop talking … it is that awesome!
Basketball is a great way to get your mind off things and is also a great way to express yourself. It is a sport that can work your whole body. It’s a great pastime for any one and is a great way to bond with family members and friends. I see in my eyes that basketball is very addicting and makes you want to play more and more of it.
