My basketball is special because I bring it to school to play. I bring it so that I can play basketball with my friends. Sometimes I play Knockout and sometimes I play real games. My teacher Mr. Lorenzo likes to do tricks with the basketball and I would like to learn how to do it also. I like to play basketball because it is a sport that is challenging. It is a game that makes me try harder and want to win. It might even make me taller. It makes me healthy. I am not good at it but I am trying. I am pretty good at soccer though and I play it with my brother.
