In basketball, every one loses a game once in a while because no body is perfect. Even if you look at the NBA, not a single team in NBA history has ever gone undefeated during an entire season. Even though this is impossible, teams have almost reached perfection, and this proves that hard work really counts. Nonetheless, if you put in the effort and the hard work, this challenge could be obtained. This quote by Michael Jordan exemplifies that not everything in life will come easy or in basketball games. You can’t just take shortcuts in life, you need to take the hard route and put in the effort, because nothing is guaranteed or given on a silver platter in life. Once the heart and effort is there, surely something good will be given to you one day. Michael Jordan stated, “Be true to the game, because the game will be true to you. If you try to shortcut the game, then the game will shortcut you. If you put forth the effort, good things will be bestowed upon you. That’s truly about the game, and in some ways that’s about life too.” (more…)

“Its part of my game, getting to the free-throw line and being aggressive. If you say that I get superstar calls or I get babied by the refs, that’s just taking away from how I play. That’s disrespectful to me. “
-Kevin Durant.




In my school, defensive stances are really important. Defensive creates the offensive. That is what my coach always said. In defensive stances, you always want to be lower than your opponent because you can be quick and fast. Secondly, you want to have a straight back when defending because your back will start aching. Lastly, when defending you want force your opponent to base line or to a side where there are help. If you are defending on the top, force the player to the side where he is weakest. For example if he is a righty, force him to the left and vice a versa.
