Basketball is an indoor court game between two teams of five players, each trying to score by tossing an inflated ball through a raised goal. I am a basketball player who enjoys the game. When I am all stressed out, I play basketball. I label myself with the game of basketball because I have grown up with it since the second grade. I use it as one of the strongest words to describe me because it is part of my life.

As a basketball player I devote any extra time to the game. It has become a part of me, a part of who I am and who I am going to be. It has not only made me who I am, but it has helped shaped my personality. It made me athletic, outgoing, strong willed and unwilling ever to give up. Basketball helps give me a positive outlook on life.

It's just a game, when all seems impossible and a player thinks there is no hope for winning, there is. In the game of basketball any team can win the game, but the outcome depends on how much a player wants to and how much effort he puts forth. Basketball is like life the more I put forth the more I receive.
