Ball is Life

Basketball is everything to me. I look forward to it all year. Even though other sports interest me, nothing comes close to basketball. It may cut into my social life, but it doesn’t change the way I love the game. I play basketball pretty much every day and I never get tired of it. I can say that basketball is my passion.

Basketball in my opinion the best thing I can do with my friends to have fun while burning a few calories. I see basketball as a fun and 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. I prefer to have others to play with rather than just playing alone. To me there is not only one word that I can describe basketball. You meet tons of people and you are able to play with your friends for hours without getting one thought of boredom. One thing I love about basketball is that people have many different styles of play. There are styles such as a passer, playmaker, shooter, defensive player, and dunker or highflyer. When you play basketball you feel much more confident and makes you not care much about how others think about you. When I possess the ball in basketball I have the mentality of being the best and no one could stop me. Many people have creative ideas and find new ways to trick the opposing players. Playing Basketball is very entertaining since there are endless ideas you can think of just with a hoop and a basketball. There are many reasons why I love to play the game of Basketball but I also love to watch the game also.

I started playing basketball because of my original favorite player, Kobe Bryant He was a legendary, unstoppable guy. That no one can even play defense on him and he can do a lot of things inside the court that everyone else can’t do. Kobe Bryant is my hero and my inspiration in my life

So one day, when I was 11-years old, I decided to go outside in our backyard in the Philippines. The basket was originally for my cousin, so this was my first time ever shooting a basketball. I will never forget that the first shot I ever took was a perfect, nothing but net. It felt amazing, and I’ve been in love with this sport ever since.

When I play basketball, I feel great, even though I’m not the best of players. When I do good things on the court, I know it’s because I can make up for my lack of athleticism with being a student of the game. As I said earlier, it’s the one place on earth where I am in my element. I don’t worry about school, or family, or problems. I think about what’s in front of me, and how I can get the basketball in the hoop. 
Playing basketball is the one thing I know I will always love to do. When I grow up I want to do something with basketball or just sports in general. People say to do the things you love in life and what would be better than doing you love every day. Basketball is my passion and always will be.
