The topic I have chosen for this research paper is The Talents of Michael Jordan. This topic interested me because Michael Jordan is my favorite basketball player ever since I was small. Some information that I know about Michael Jordan is that he is one of the most famous basketball players in NBA history. He has his own sneaker brand. Michael did a movie with the Looney tunes named Space Jam. Michael use to play baseball after retired from playing basketball.
In Howard Beck's essay, "Fireworks by Knicks, Followed by a Title," from http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/10/sports/basketball/knicks-rout-wizards-..., the author writes about the game that the New York Knicks had against the Washington Wizards, and he was talking about how good Carmelo Anthony had 36 pts, 8 rebounds, 6 assists. Also how the team was playing during the whole game, and how they won.
I chose Jr Smith to be 6th man of the year in the NBA organization. I chose this topic because Jr smith is my favorite player in the NBA. Although recently he's been in a little on and off "rut" as they would say he has been a major factor in the New York Knicks basketball team game plan. Stepping up from a role player to a starring role on the New York Knicks. Averaging 16 points 2 assists 4 rebounds and 1 steal a game. not to mention his outstanding efforts on defense in terms off pressuring the ball handler and forcing turn overs.
I have never really known what I look like from another person's point of view. The Baccalaureate School for Global Education, Queens, NY, USA has taught me how to express how I feel about myself through one single picture. I think of myself as a Jewish Basketball player who is addicted to books. I know this is not how everyone feels about me. This avatar is supposed to symbolize who I am through my own point of view. My point of view is likely to be wrong. People may feel hate, regret, sadness, or even shyness towards me.
In class we are working on cropping. I took this at a basketball game and the one on the left is the original. I cropped out the Ref and and the people in the stands. On the right picture, I also blurred the people in the background people they were distracting to me. I think cropping is really important because it helps see the complete image instead of becoming distracting to things that aren't related to the photo. I tend to use cropping a lot, especially when there is an open space.
I have grown up with sports my entire life. Ever since I was a little kid ,I have managed and helped out with my brothers teams, from basketball, baseball, and football. I have been playing organized sports since I was 6 years old, and I am still playing sports today!
Kobe Bryant. (2012, September 12). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 14:51, September 19, 2012, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Kobe_Bryant&oldid=512033457
I love this article because... not only is Kobe Bryant my favorite basketball player he's also one of my two idols. I found this article very interesting because I learned more than I thought about Kobe. Its tell way more than about his history and even his childhood.
The game shows a lot of improvement from the previous game NBA 2k12. By watching this video u can see some of the differences such as emotions, reactions and signature movies. Me being a basketball gaming fan i'm very hyped about the changes and whats new in the game to come. October 2 the game will release but there will also be a midnight releases. From watching this video through the link from YouTube u may be connected to more videos that may help u see all the new moves and perks
This past year of 2011 up until now, the New York knicks team have been through a very interesting ride for New York and its players. New york has a history of great success at Its Madison square garden arena. Remember the good old days with Wilt Chamberlain record breaking points scored in one game? Well, I don't! but I know my history and the fact that they were a very strong team.
Have you ever heard of Earl “The Goat” Manigault? He was a true legend in Harlem and had his own tournament. The Goat never gave up as a kid in junior high school he always tried to dunk even when people told him he couldn't. As he was growing up he had a huge inspiration Holcombe Rucker. The famous Rucker tried his best to help the goat. Even when The Goat started doing drugs and got expelled Rucker found him a good school out of town to help him.
Recently, the Utah Jazz were on a six game winning streak. They had beaten Minnesota, Golden State, LA Lakers, Oklahoma City, Sacramento, and Denver. They were on a roll! Unfortunately, in a valiant effort, they lost in quadruple overtime to the Atlanta Hawks. Personally, I dont believe it counts as a loss. The Jazz showed how great of a team they are, and they never gave up. Sure, they had 4 times to make the game winning shot, but regardless of what happened when they missed those final shots, they never gave up.
I am a basketball player and practicing is a must. To get where you want to be, you have to master what you want. I practice anytime I can because practice makes perfect.
As a great basketball play once said, “You can practice shooting eight hours a day, but if your technique is wrong, then all you become is very good at shooting the wrong way. Get the fundamentals down and the level of everything you do will rise.”- Michael Jordan
This quote is so true and this is what makes me work really hard.
This past week was the first week of the NCAA Basketball Tournament and the official beginning of "March Madness." This time of year is dedicated to researching the tournament field for your bracket, making your final selections, watching everything fall apart, and then rooting for whatever underdogs remain in the tournament. This week we saw two heavily favored 2 seeds fall to 15 seeds as well as other big time upsets. Syracuse's Fab Melo was suspended due to an academic eligibility issue and many believed that they would exit in the first round.
The March Madness tournament has finally started, and college basketball has never been more exciting. It's the time of year when underdog teams beat the national powerhouse, and lesser-known players make a name for themselves. The month of March is always the month of limbo between the new year, and summertime. It seems to drag on as we await summer, but March Madness helps reduce this. Every night after school, work, sporting events,etc we can go home knowing that eating some food and watching some basketball is always possible.
I don't appreciate how Jeremy Lin has a couple of good games and every body is a Knicks fan. I'm not going to lie I like the Knicks but I am not going to call myself a Knicks fan. I also don't appreciate how everybody talks about Jeremy Lin yet John Wall has been forgotten about.
Mrs. Mayer gets upset when people miss opportunities to experience music. Every time she books us for a gig/field trip, somebody will say they can't go because they will miss an athletic practice, and she says, "how often to you go to practice and how often do you get a chance to do something like this?" It's a convincing argument, and the only practical counter-argument is, "I dunno, my Dad won't let me..." I understand where Mrs. Mayer is coming from.
I just read a Wikipedia article: Kyrie Irving. (2012, March 1). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 16:17, March 2, 2012, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Kyrie_Irving&oldid=479730012 I am please with this article because its not like it was an article for entertainment. It was an article basically on the person’s general information.
I understand the game of street basketball. I played street basketball from the age of seven. Street basketball is similar but different from regular basketball. The rules are changed so players can show their own individual skills in the game. Some kids learn the art of street basketball before they learn the art and rules of the game of regular basketball.
You heard of Michael Jordan, Lebron James, and Kobe Bryant. But, have you heard of Jeremy Lin? Well you probably have throughout the weeks. But I’m not here to tell you how Jeremy Lin scored 38 points against the Lakers or how he led the Knicks to a 7-0 run. I’m here to tell you how he came from nothing and right now he is one of the best players.
Sometimes I wonder about the expectations certain basketball players have for different aspects of their lives. When you look at Jeremy Lin's career and his personal life, you can tell this guy did damage to a university and a franchise, which is maybe why we know him as “LINSANITY.” He helps us to set goals in life that go beyond our horizons. Lin makes me think that anybody in this world can achieve something greater than what your fall-back is. Sure, many people have became famous after living a hard background, rappers for example, or Steve Job. Lin is another example.
The shortened NBA season is going to feel a lot longer for the Utah Jazz if the early season poor performance is any indication of the teams abilities. With fewer than five games under their belt, the Jazz look more like helpless victims walking through a cattle shoot than a basketball team. Utah (1-3) is giving up more points per game than any other team in the league. They’re also second in the league in point differential, losing by over 13 points a night on average. And if the collective defense of Utah isn’t bad enough, their offensive numbers aren’t very high either .
As you may have heard the NBA had a large dilemma lasting six months and into the NBA season, what happened is that many players did not think they were being paid enough, which is completely ridiculous. The lockout had a huge effect on those businesses or people associated with the games. First of all, since the games were not taking place this meant that employees were not able to work in the stadiums. Those employees who are usually hired to work the concession stands or sell food, drinks, and souvenirs around the stadium were out of work while the lockout persisted.
Basketball season is finally here in so many different ways. Both the boys' and girls' Judge teams kicked off their seasons this past week, with us girls at Jordan High School and the boys at home against Bingham. Although both varsity teams lost their season opener, it's looking to be a promising year for both squads. Come support your Judge teams and watch us this week on Friday night with the girls at home against Juab at 7:30 and the boys away at Riverton at 7.
Tomorrow night marks the opening of the Judge basketball season, which means that the 6th man club will be out in full force for the first time all year. While basketball is a game of respect, the 6th man club often brings a whole new outlook to the game, taunting players, heckling referees, and enraging opposing fan sections. Tuesday night's tip off against Bingham begins a whole new season for 6th man. I know I'm excited for one. Tomorrow night is "country club night," with Judge students dressing up in their classiest clothes and having a jolly good time.
