Basketball: my passion

Basketball was born in 1893, and, for the first time, it was for fame onlyl In 1932 the “International Basketball Federation” was founded and it became famous first of all in the USA, (at first for women and then for men).

In the squad there are 5 players positioned in their own place inside the camp: center, power forward, small forward, point guard and shooting guard. The field is 15×38 m and around of it there is a large white line. Inside there are also other lines to know how many points you have scored during the match. One match lasts 40 minutes divided in 4 times. The winning squad is the one that gets more points when the match finishes.

One of my favorite basketball players is LeBron James. He’s an American professional basketball player in Los Angeles. He was born the 30th of December in the USA. He is 2.06 m tall and he weighs 113kg. He has 3 children. He is one of the greatest player in NBA and he was often compared to Michael Jordan.

James has competed in 10 NBA Finals. He also has been selected to the NBA team a record of 17 times. In 2021 he was selected for the NBA 75th Anniversary Team.

I started to play basketball because it is very interesting – now I have been in the squad for 7 months and it’s so special, like magic.
