A few days ago, my school basketball team played our first game of the year against another school, during the game I started dribbling around one of my teammates, I made it look like I was going in for the layup but I didn't. When I saw my check standing behind my teammate, I felt my body take over, It felt like it was in slow motion, I couldn't hear the crowd anymore, all I could think about was the shot. I focused my eye on the net, I positioned my hands on the ball, jumped up from the 3-point line and took the shot. I could almost hear the ball flying through the air. I saw the ball go in without touching the rim or the backboard, it was nothing but net and instantly, it sped up again and I was back in the game. When I see that open lane and I go in for a layup, I feel Weightless, I feel as if I can make any shot I want, it just feels natural.
I know it is going to be extremely hard to get into the NBA but that is why I want to be in the NBA, to show that I can work hard and persevere to do what I love. Some basketball players are so amazing, it seems like a children's story when you talk about them (such as Michael Jordan)
Basketball is my passion and I don't know what I would do if I couldn't play basketball.
