Game of Hoops

As a kid what I loved the most is playing basketball. At the beginning, basketball amazed me a lot more than any other sports as every player I saw was tall and I loved how the ball used to move with the player as if it is glued to their hands. Later on with the passing of time and regular NBA on tally made me more fascinated. I enrolled my name in the school’s basketball team and I started playing in my school team which made me realize that a player with lightning speed makes the ball impossible to catch.
I started working towards making basketball my profession. It occurred to my mind that basketball can lead to an easy scholarship which made me think about my career. I was inspired by Steve Nash as he was gifted with the ability for the greatest hook shot. He was the best defensive point guard. He stood against his tall opponents which gave me a push. I remember the tip that was given for the hook shot was to cover the middle of the lane then curl and cut over the chair then take control of the ball, once you get a chance reach the baseline and then shoot. If you want to improvise then you can reach the middle lane and go opposite to cut and curl and reach to shoot.
The game is all about inertia. You need to be quick and smooth for a shot. Though I was thinking of making basketball my career however it was momentary. I later realized that basketball as a career is a good option however it was not meant for me. I just loved the game. Now, as well when I get time I keep practicing my hook shots so that I can reach the perfection not because I need a career in it but because I love the game.
Last but not the least when it comes to basketball it is not only the player that is important and has to be all prepared but its a team effort. The game taught me to be a team player, to anticipate the move of the opponents, to also read my team members what they want so that I can make my move according to go for the basket. I miss my childhood days and those momentarily made career goals. I was an expert basketball player and was about to be a member of NBA, in my mind of course.
