Basketball is my favorite sport. I started to play Basketball two years ago. On my first day I was excited, but I didn’t know anything about this sport, but my coach welcame me and he explained me the rules of basketball. When I started I was very weak but eventually I become stronger and I become the leader of my team. I like watching basketball also on tv, especially the American basketball teams, because I think they are the best basketball players in the world. My favourite American player is Michael Jordan, who doesn’t play anymore and Lebron James who plays in Miami Hills My coach is called Sergio Donadoni. When he was1 young he played in a local team. He is severe but he is funny too. He gets angry when we don’t score any points because he says that it is very important. When we practice he make us do a lot of exercises: we run, we do sit-ups and etc. Three times a week I play basketball in the High School gym. We start at half past five and we finish at half past seven. The gym is near my house, sometimes4 I go on foot or by bike. My team is called Angels, and we are all fifteen years old. Where we play also a girls team practices but I think that our team is better than the girls team because girls play badly. When I grow older I want to play in this team, like my coach and become a famous basketball player because I love this sport. Next month we are going to go to Porto San Giorgio for five days, for a tournament, and we are determined to be the winners.
