In my PowerPoint Presentation I will be talking to you guys about my favourite sport basketball. I hope You enjoy! Basketball is my favourite sport. It’s more than my favourite sport, it’s my passion. Whenever I play basketball I always give it my all. When I play basketball I feel like I’m in my own world. I’m calling the shots, I’m controlling the game. Basketball is a good way to get away from all the hard things in life. No matter what happens in my life, I will always and I mean always love and play basketball. There is one main reason that I play basketball. I play basketball because I enjoy playing it. I don’t play because someone told me to or I’ve been forced too, I play because I want too. You may think I suck but I don’t care. B-ball is my life and it will always be. I started playing basketball at the age of 6. It all started on such a weird way. My dad took me to watch one of my cousin’s basketball practice. When the practice was over one of the coaches told me to come talk to him. He told me to start playing basketball because I was fairly tall while I was young. I told my dad what the coach had said and he immediately signed me up for after school basketball. From that day on I started playing lots of basketball. A couple years later my dad bought me a basketball hoop on which I practice everyday. Throughout my whole basketball career I have achieved many awards. In the next few slides I will be showing you a few of these awards. I got my first ever basketball medal in grade 4 for coming in 3rd place in our after school basketball league. This is my favourite medal. We came in 1st place in our afterschool league in grade 6. #OrangeTeam In my whole life I have won 2 player of the game t-shirts. My favourite team in the NBA is the Los Angeles Lakers. I have been cheering for this team since 2008. They lost that year to my cousins team, The Boston Celtics. He always pissed me off about how the Lakers lost to the Celtics until 2010. This year the Lakers beat the Celtics in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. My favourite player on the Lakers has always been #24 Kobe Bryant. I really enjoy watching him play because in my opinion he is one of the most clutch basketball players to play the game. Kobe ranks 4th in scoring all time and is closing on 3rd place. He is trying to pass Michael Jordan. This season Kobe ranks 19th in assists, more than Dwayne Wade, Kevin Durant, and lots more. One of my favourite basketball players is Kyrie Irving. In my opinion I believe that he is one of the best point guards in the NBA. Kyrie was selected 1st overall in the 2011 draft and has already become one of the most electrifying players in the game. I really enjoy watching him play because he can just take off in a blink of an eye. Each time I watch him play I try to learn some of the moves he does so that I can try those same moves in a game. Kyrie is a huge role-model for me. I will always be a huge fan of him.
