This book shows how you play basketball. Also it shows how a basketball man should weigh. A basketball is filled with air made of tiny molecules. Air molecules are always moving and bumping into one another. I like the way it said a basketball player uses many muscles. I like the way it said mass vs. weight. [hot boy]
A boy named Ty who basically gets recruited by the spring football coach. Ty wants to be like his older brother who is a famous football player. When Ty asks his uncle if he can play, Uncle Gus tells him, “No!” Then Lucy starts asking about Thane, the older brother. Read this book to find out why Ty has to save them. The Football Hero was very entertaining, I highly recommend it. Of course it’s about sports. [EERR]
There are two twin brothers named Tiki and Ronde Barber. Both of them play on the football team for their school. The team does very well. Most of their wins are from field goals. Then, the kicker got bad grades and can’t play. The coach finds out that Ronde can kick. Ronde makes a lot of field goals, but in the semi-finals Ronde missed the game winner. He was really sad. Tiki cheered him up.
This was a good book. It taught me about the “heart” of a team. It’s more than just playing to win. I also learned about Tiki’s brotherly love. [???]
In June of 2005, the type of ball used in the NBA was changed for the first time. It was now a leather ball. This book told about the history of basketball. It also talked about some of the greatest players and how to play the game. It showed all of the steps and rules. Readers will like this book since it gives a lot of information, including pictures.

Michael Jordan succeeded and failed many times. He is most famous as a basketball player for the Chicago Bulls who scored lots of points. My favorite part of the book was when Michael shaved his head before a college game. He had a great game! The book gave me the will to play my hardest ALWAYS! [Bundi 123]
Caesar,Waco, ESPN, Nique, and Shane play basketball at the West 4th Street court known as “The Cage” in New York City. Some TV people come and they get into a debate about who gets to use the court. They play against each other to see who gets it. My favorite character is Waco because he is quiet, but interesting. I liked it when Caesar got mad at Waco and punched and slapped him in the face.
