    strong and tough. Being a great shooter is also a deadly component. So, basically if you have all of these traits your guaranteed success, I guess. But what people don’t think about is how silly we look playing the game and practicing. We have to learn all the fundamentals about how to shoot the “right way”, how to pass,how to lay the ball up, how to dribble, and how to play defense “correctly.” But I wonder, who came up with the “right way?” Why is it there a correct way of doing all of these things when different ways, work for different people? In this essay I am going to explore the different components of basketball and explain how odd we look to outsiders. A layup in basketball is when you lay the ball up with your hand while jumping then gliding through the air. Coaches teach us that when you are shooting a layup you should always keep the ball up and have a soft touch. When you are driving from the right, you use your right hand and jump off of your left…

    Running down the court, having the mindset that no one can guard me. I have the ball, she just missed the lay-up. I’m running I’m so close to the basket. Layup, lay-up, layup, then I fall. All that’s next is this pain, a pain that I knew couldn’t be serious. I get up I’m okay at least I think I’m okay. I’m walking it off in pain, All I’m thinking about is nothing can happen to me the season is about to start. I walk. I walk. I’m okay now, but am I? By the way, the pain was in my knee, but next…

    We worked on ball handling, layups, free throws, shooting, defense, and conditioning. I was showing a great effort. I was a lot more confident than I was last time. The coach was using me to help show the rest of the player 's the drills. When was doing suicides I was really tired, but I knew that I had to show the coach that I did not get tired quickly. Tryouts ended. The coach called a bunch of the boys that tried out. I was kind of nervous because I was thinking that maybe the boys he called…

    The layup is the easiest shot to perform in basketball. This technique will usually be used to score the most points in a game. It is quick, simple and when done correct it can’t be denied by the opposition. The layup has three phases, the dribbling phase, the stepping phase and the jumping/landing phase. The muscles used are forearm, biceps, trapezius, deltoids, gastrocnemius, quads, wrist. The layup uses a lot of flexion and extension of muscles and joints. In the dribbling phase your quads…

    Stokes scored 15 points apiece as Kansas State dished No. 7 West Virginia University its second straight loss on Saturday. “We haven’t had that edge and we need to get that edge back,” head coach Bob Huggins said. Trailing by three with 25 seconds remaining Esa Ahmad's turnover turned costly allowing Brown to finish with the fast-break layup to give the Wildcats a 78-73 lead. Daxter Miles Jr.'s tipin with seven seconds remaining cut the deficit to three but Brown made a free throw to put the…

    NBA 2K17: A Stupid Game

    • 259 Words
    • 2 Pages

    I think NBA 2K17 is a stupid game because you really can’t do anything cool on there anymore. You try to do moves but nothing happens and it’s very frustrating when I want to break someone's ankles. The ball gets stolen every time and I get mad at the game. I’ve gotten so mad at it before that I almost snapped the game. You can’t hit layups on there ever. It’s hard to play sometimes because they changed the controls. This game is stupid. My favorite player derrick rose is trash in the game.…

    1. The sport and level I chose is based on the age and sport in which I coach. I chose basketball and the age of my athletes will be 10 or 11 year olds, which would be 5th or 6th grade. They are at a beginner level, which means they either never played basketball before or have 1 year or less under their belt. 2. Based on them being at a beginner level, I would expect them to be able to dribble with their dominant hand, know basic passes, a basic layup, and possibly know the correct shooting…
