[Bow Wow]
Yeah, yo
I got the rock in my hands
There aint no tellin what im gonna do wit it
When i got possession im gonna have to fool wit it
I might cross you up and fake one way
Turn around and hit you wit the MJ fade-away
I throwin down passes like J-Kidd
Taking cats to the rack
And Im dunkin over them like T-Mac
When Im in the paint I play wit that Alonzo style
Im like darious cuz I can shoot 2 miles

Dont too many players get offers like me
Im back-n-forth likely
Shake the checks off your nikes
They almost had me in a suit at the draft
Cuz it look like a freethrow
When I be shootin from half
The first step like Iverson, blow pass you
Hell leave nuthin but net, but i can go blast too
When Im in the paint the defense so shook
They dont know if Im gonna put up a slow hook or dish up a no-look
See my game consist of whole lotta…..
Moves you would think I learned from the Harlem Globe Trotters
JD gonna lead us to a ring
Fab and Bow Wow is the only players that makes the cheerleaders wanna sing

They’re playing basketball(put it up, put it up. put it up now)
We love that basketball(put it up, put it up, put it up now)
They’re playing basketball(ya)
We love that basketball(put it up, put it up, put it up now)
They’re playing basketball
We love that basketball

[Jermaine Dupri]
Now tell me were you in the joint
The night MJ scored 63 points
When the Lakers won titles back-to-back
Didnt give nobody no kind of slack
When Vince Carter came
Stuck his arm in the rim
Everybody went crazy in the whole damn gym
Dikembe Mutumbo standing tall
Playing D wit desire
Its Basketball

They’re playing basketball(put it up, put it up, put it up now)
We love that basketball
They’re playing basketball(put it up, put it up, put it up now)
We love that basketball
They’re playing basketball(put it up, put it up, put it up now)
We love that basketball
They’re playing basketball(put it up, put it up, put it up now)
We love that basketball


Basketball Motivation – Playing With No Regrets

motivation photoIt's the off-season for most young basketball players in the country right now and it makes me wonder what kids are doing with their time.  I&m 38 years old and I still love playing basketball and working on my game.  I also have serious regrets about how my basketball career went.  I was one of the kids that worked hard on my game and even still, I wonder what if all the time.  I wish so bad I could go back and do certain things different which makes me pose the question, what are you doing today to be a better player?  
I ran into a High School friend of mine who decided that he did not want to play basketball his last year of High School.  It&s been 20 years now and he still wishes he would played.  Why did he play?  He had a girlfriend at the time and was very into his social life.  He wanted to have his freedom each day after school instead of being tied down with practice.  20 years later and it still bothers him.  The girlfriend is long gone and he does not even remember what he did after school.  It probably consisted of watching television and playing video games.
What are you doing today to be a better player?  What are you doing to insure that you won&t have any regrets 20 years from now? The opportunity to play organized basketball is a very short window in your life and you will most certainly look back in regret if you don&t take full advantage of it. 
The best players do what they have to do and then move on with life.  That means that they get up early and get the work in before doing anything else.  Usually we prioritize what&s important to us in and effort to make sure the important things get done first.  Get up in the morning and get to a gym.  If you have an issue with conditioning, then get out and do something else.  Do some jump-rope or organize some competitive scrimmage games. Do whatever you have to.   
What did I do to be a better player?  I spent my summers in a church gym in my strength shoes.  I jumped and ran and shot until I could not feel my arms or legs.  I shot off the dribble, off a jump-stop and worked on both hands.  Then I would go outside and run.  I would run hills in my strength shoes until I wore them out.  My motivation was getting that letter of intent that I had always dreamed of.  I just wanted to sign with a Division I program.
When I signed with the University of Utah it was one of the best days of my life.  It felt like all the work had paid off and was worth it.  But actually that&s where my regret comes in.  Once I signed I felt like I was done.  I felt like I had arrived.  I had spent so much time with that as my focus that I became content.  I thought I was good enough but really I wasn&t.  Set your sights on goals like scholarships but also set your sights on your potential and doing all that you can.  
The bottom line  living with regret is no fun. If you like basketball and you are good at it - give it the best you&ve got. You&re not going to have a young, strong and athletic body for the rest of your life. Don&t fool yourself into thinking that you&ve got all the time in the world and that you&ll get focused tomorrow. Tomorrow turns into next week, next week turns into next month and next month turns into next year. The window is too short for that.

Regulation Size Basketball

Photo by Mr ATM

When it comes to participating in sports, you want to be sure you or your players have the correct equipment. The right clothing and shoes is important, as is the accessories needed to play the game. For example, having a regulation size basketball is vital. You want to be sure the players are using the right ball to ensure they can properly dribble, shoot, and control it. A regulation basketball for a specific set of players has a certain weight and dimensions that make it different from the others. Not only will having the right size basketball help the players play better, it can also prevent them from becoming injured.

As far as basketball is concerned, there are two types of injuries that can be received. They are categorized by the location of the body in which they can occur. Lower body injuries consist of sprained ankles, twisted knees, and other injuries of the hips, legs, and feet. These can be reduced by wearing the right shoes and learning how to properly run while dribbling by a basketball. The upper body injuries are usually due to not having a regulation size basketball that is appropriate for the child or adult playing with it.

A regulation size basketball for a certain level is based on a few different things. First, it takes into account the ability of the players. Most girls and youth will need a lighter ball than high school boys’ teams. They will also need a basketball that is smaller in circumference so that they can control it while they play.

To help prevent injuries and allow the players to handle the ball better, a regulation basketball must be used. It is important that coaches understand the recommended dimensions and weights so that their players practice and play with the right balls. The following are the different regulation sizes for various age and grade levels.

Youth Leagues – These usually consist of boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 12. They usually use a regulation basketball that is designed for a girl. Coaches of younger players may be able to find a smaller sized ball, but the search may be difficult.

Youth League Circumference – 28.5 – 29 inches
Youth League Weight – 18 to 20 ounces

Middle and High School Leagues – The girls middle school and high school (including Varsity and Junior Varsity) teams will use the same regulation size basketball as youth leagues do.

Boys’ Middle and High School Leagues – Since males tend to have larger hands and can control more weight, their basketballs are different.

Boys’ Middle and High School League Circumference – 29 – 30 inches
Boys’ Middle and High School League Weight – 20 – 22 ounces

As you can see, it is important to provide players with the appropriate regulation size basketball. This will help them become better in the game. Practicing should also be done with the correct ball to appropriately prepare for upcoming games and tournaments. Injuries can also be avoided when the right equipment is used.

Welcome to Kids Sporting Outlet, inside you will discover an amazing selection of low priced and excellent quality regulation size basketball.

Best Basketball Commercials

Here we go. A look at the top five basketball commercials. Anywhere from funny basketball commercials to simply sweet ones.

5. Steve Nash with Vitamin Water: This funny basketball commercial was not widely aired, but is down right funny. It reminds me of Zoolander. So if you like that type of humor, you have to see this. It is basically Steve Nash saying all these outrageous things about himself while he is doing a model shoot and putting on makeup.

4. Be Like Mike (Gatorade) Original: The one that started it all I guys. “Like Mike, I wish a could be like Mike.” How that has stuck even today. How could this not be a top commercial if even years later people are still saying “I wish I could be like Mike.”

3. Nike Freestyle: This Nike commercial is exactly what it says it is. Freestyle. It has a whole bunch of people doing sick moves with the basketball. It is put together to an absolutely sweet rhythm and it makes you want to go out and learn and do the moves that the people on the commercial are doing.

2. Let Your Game Speak: Once again, a Nike commercial. I am not a Nike fan, but there commercials are good. This  Nike commercial features a whole bunch of kids doing Michael Jordan moves. They then go on to do some of his highlight dunks. It ends with them having the same game winners as him. It is basically a whole bunch of kids in a Michael Jordan highlight real with sweet music. Just Awesome.

1. Kobe and Lebron Puppets: This commercials were just absolutely awesome. For once, it was like the Superbowl when watching the NBA playoffs because I could not wait until another one of these commercials came on. There was “playoffs” commercial in which Lebron is totally jacked and is running around doing his chalk ritual and Kobe is like “been there, done that.” Then there is the “babysitting” commercial in which they have to babysitting this annoying little kid. The good part comes when they show the kid their shoe room and he shuts up and grabs for his inhaler. There is the “rings” commercial in which Kobe lets Lebron know about how many rings he has and the “car jump” commercial in which Kobe’s puppet does Kobe’s original (fake) car jump. This are just absolutely great.

Basketball For Confidence

basketball photoMy uncle was a paraplegic and his accident occurred when he was relatively young, 34 years old. Prior to his accident he was not involved in basketball his favorite sport was motor-cross racing. He was not a competitor but he was very influential in the managerial side of motor-cross events. After his accident he needed a new challenge and he eventually met up with a group of people who also needed a new challenge in their life and they found it in wheelchair basketball.

Basketball is a great sport and is open to so many different cultures and lifestyles including those who have disabilities. There are few people who have a disability that get involved in sporting activities. There are many physical therapeutic and psychological advantages available to people with disabilities who involve themselves in sports activities and wheelchair basketball is a great sport for many people who have a disability. Wheelchair basketball is just one of these options out there. Playing wheelchair basketball can help with issues such as self confidence but not only that, it allows the opportunity for interaction with others.

Many people are also aware that wheelchair basketball is played at an international level. The beginning of wheelchair basket ball is said to date back to the World War II where after the war there were so many serviceman that had been confined to wheelchairs. Then in 1946 those veterans got together in the sport and played their first game. The sport of wheelchair basketball has eventually grown to the way it is today to become a very popular sport all over the world.

The rules of wheelchair basketball are very similar in that they follow the rules of the International Basketball Federation where the games are played on a regulation court and with the 10-foot basketball hoop. Many of the rules were adapted such as the players are not allowed to touch the wheels of their wheelchair more than two times after receiving the ball or dribbling the ball. Then before they are allowed to handle the wheels they must bounce pass or shoot.

International competitions for wheelchair basketball are held all over the world today. The sport of wheelchair basketball is included in the Paralympic Games and has been since 1950. The Paralympics are held every 2 years. There are is also the wheelchair basketball prize of the Gold Cup and currently the countries that are most prominent in the sport are Canada, Australia, USA, Japan, Netherlands and England.

There are many countries that now have mixed teams. Mixed teams comprise able bodied players as well as disabled players. This form of basketball is very quick and as with most sports also highly competitive. The games are very exciting and great entertainment for spectators as well. Wheelchair basketball is enjoyed by the players of course as well as their fans, which makes it a great sport for those who are disabled but wish to remain competitive and of course enjoy sports.

For my uncle this was a great change to the way he viewed his life and after his accident which left him despondent for many years he gained a new lease on life. He did not attend the Paralympics but he certainly enjoyed watching the games with his new found friends and he loved to be able to be physical again on the court amongst those friends. He still plays as a Golden Oldie for a local team in his city but they have a mixed team for the Golden Oldies and it is great to see those with a disability encouraging those without disabilities to get the hang of wheelchair basketball. Who knows what kind of person he would have been if he did not have the opportunity to become part of the wheelchair basketball team.

Basketball Item Wholesales

basketball photoBuying wholesales for basketball game is an acceptable choice for basketball conferences, training cores, schools and foundations promoting basketball. Buying basketballs in bulk is a good way to make a significant amount of basketballs without spending much money.

The reason collective users prefer buying wholesales for basketball is the sheer cost effectuality. Nearly all wholesales for basketball dealers and retail merchants would render rebates with a increasing number of balls bought. The more orders placed, the heavier the discount. While an personal approach will not require to buy more than one or two basketballs for normal usage, a basketball coaching center, for example, might be necessitated with dozens of basketballs for game education for its students. Basketball wholesalers offer sound concessions keeping these users in mind.

ATAFA.com, the web site of ATAFA Sporting Items Shop, for example, wholesales many basketball goods like basketball nets, small indoor nets, and other sports goods.

Requests Of Orders concluded 2000 basketballs are suitable to have heavier discounts. The single colored outside basketball could be placed in order for $ 4 / piece for 500 basketballs. This scheme is ideal for large basketball retail merchants.

Apart from athletics merchants, basketballs can be placed in orders in bulk from wholesale dealers who do day to day sale of full range of sports and non-athletics goods.

Jump Higher in Basketball

basketball photo

Jump higher in basketball is a command usually given by coaches or trainers to their trainees in basketball because the victory in this game is determined by the abilities of the players to jump high. Lay ups and dunks are smoothly done if the players have mastered the art of jumping higher.

The ways to increase height reached in jumping are varied and choosing the kind of exercise program, workout or training needs hard thinking. Select programs suited to the trainee’s lifestyle. The program to be chosen must be holistic. The soul and the body must be nourished. The soul comprises the emotional and mental attitude.

Increasing the height, which the player can carry the body upwards is a time consuming activity. Consistency in training is a must. Discipline in time and discipline of the body must go hand in hand with the regular training.

What are the contributing factors that can make for a great high jump?  There are a lot of them. Here are some suggestions:

First, start with the head, a mindset should be established that there are goals set to be achieved. High jumping is the target. The mind must be conditioned so that the body must be trained. What the mind will dictate, the body will follow.

Mind conditioning is an important tool in discipline.  Imagination or visualization can greatly help the player.  This is done by letting the player imagine himself making the perfect dunks or lay ups.  Let the mind do wonders by repeatedly thinking about how the jump is to be executed even imagining how the whole game will be won.  With daily visualizations the player mentally believes he will and he can do the high jumps which will ultimately result in good performance in the game.

Second, the chest area, there must be an exercise that can help the lungs.  Longevity of breath and proper breathing should be achieved.  Even if the player is capable of high jumps but he cannot sustain his breath nothing happens.  Running in an ascending road, like towards a hill or on stairs will greatly help the lungs and also the heart.

Third, the body where the arms and the torso are located, an exercise for the arms, the back and the abdomen must also be maintained.  The ideal weight must be maintained too. Excess weight will pull down rather than pull up jumper.  The jumper also will need double energy to propel the body upward.

Fourth, the lower body, where the legs, feet and thighs are located, keeping these parts of the body in perfect shape will be of great help. The various muscles in the thighs and legs must be flexible enough to ease movement.

The body weight must be properly maintained and the body must be given proper nutrition to make it function well. The stamina and energy come from the nutrients the body is fed.

When these needs are met, there is a full assurance that a player can jump higher in basketball.

My son got here home from school excited in regards to the summer job he had found. He was going to be coaching basketball for the summer. He has performed since he was a young boy, however teaching was going to be a brand new enterprise for him. My husband requested him what sort of fashion he was going to use in coaching basketball. The blank look my son gave him informed me that he had not thought about style.

We started speaking about the totally different approaches that there are to coaching any sport. My son stated that the coach he learned essentially the most from had a palms on approach. This coach would play with them and would present totally different methods throughout the course of the game. My husband pointed out that teaching is more than taking part in with the kids, there is also instructing elementary skills and staff work.

We started researching coaching basketball. There are a number of strategies that can be used to help in participant development. With coaching basketball there are the basics to teach, but additionally the concepts that go along with all workforce sports activities, reminiscent of crew play, sportsmanship and sharing. My son had not thought in regards to the a number of ideas that go together with teaching, he was taking a look at getting paid to do one thing that he enjoyed. He started to understand that coaching basketball was more than shooting hoops with younger kids.

My son beginning reading articles that targeted on constructing expertise and confidence ranges in kids via coaching. He was beginning to get involved that this summer job may be past his abilities. My husband and I reassured him that he’ll be capable of do that; he just needs to first believe in himself. Before you could be good at teaching or the rest; you will have to be able to be coached yourself. My son made an appointment to satisfy with the person that was the basketball coach when he played. This coach strengthened the factors that my son was studying about within the articles that he had researched. It’s essential to educate the basics of the game and group sports in a manner that kids will be taught, and have fun within the process.

My son starts coaching basketball in a couple of weeks. I already know that he has realized a great deal himself within the means of on the brink of do this.
