Basketball: The Most Popular Game in America

             Basketball is a great game that is one of the most popular in America.

             In this sport, you have to have good aim to shoot, good jumping skills to rebound, you have to be quick, and also have good ball handling skills. In a real game there are only five players on the court, referees, foul outs, and rules like no running with the ball, no fouling, out of bounds and no running over the other teams players on offense. I really enjoy playing this game and I practice a lot outside. If I try really hard and practice everyday I could be an extremely good player. I usually play with my friends after school for fun or just to play around and have a good time, practice on my own to practice things I need work on, or practice with my dad and let him give me some pointers.


             I love watching basketball games on TV and usually watch the Knicks play. Out of all of the 28 teams in the NBA my favorite teams from best to least.

             favorite are the New York Knicks with Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, John Starks,.

             Charlie Ward, Chris Childs, Charles Oakly, and Allen Houston. Then I like the.

             Charlotte Hornets with Anthony Mason, Tyrone Bouges, Glenn Rice, Gladie Divac, and Curry. My third favorite team is the Seattle Super Sonics with Shawn Kemp, Gary Payton, Schremph, and Perdue. My fourth and final favorite team is the Orlando Magic with my favorite player Grant Hill. My three favorite players in the NBA are Anfernee Hardaway, Grant Hill, and Shawn Kemp.

             These players have a lot of talent and I enjoy watching them play.

             For instance Anfernee is a leader for the team and has good passes, good.

             dribbling, and good shooting skills. While Larry Johnson has good.

             rebounding, pretty good shooting, and good dunking skills. Last but not least.

             Shawn Kemp who has great rebounding and spectacular dunking skills including.

             fancy dunks and great allyoops.


             I think basketball is a great sport and that it will continue to be.
