Transcript of basketball

Basketball to me is the best and most favorite sport of all time. It is such an amazing sport that is full of competition, perseverance and packed with loads of energy. I wonder who could have come up with such an intimidating and fun sport let me tell you; his name was James Naismith.
Have you ever heard of or played basketball? I am sure you all heard of this sport and maybe seen or even played in a couple games. I just hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.
The reason I chose to research about the sport basketball for my passion project was because I simply love and enjoy playing the game and not only that, I also enjoy playing different types of basketball games such as;
Bump
Poison
Around the world
Horse
Twenty-one
James Naismith was the originator of basketball, he created it in the year 1891. He created basketball because he had a job at the YMCA training school and he needed an indoor game to create because of the cold winter of spring field, Massachusetts between the football and soccer seasons.
The most important things to know about basketball are;

How to play basketball the right way
If you shoot inside the three point line it's a two pointer if you shoot outside the three point line its a three pointer.
While you are playing a basketball game and if you fight or speak bad language with your opponent you will be suspended for the rest of the game.
If your opponent fouls you, you will shoot from the free through line but it depends where they fouled you because, if you are behind the three point line you get three shots if your inside the the three point line you get two shots.
Basketball is a competitive sport which makes it entertaining to watch. Not only watching it live, but it is also watched for a siblings game or a professional basketball team on T.V. People like watching it instead of playing it because, they get entertained by a favorite team or a favorite basketball player for example; Michael Jordan, because ever since he made his dunk everyone would call him Air Jordan and that made him even more famous than he already is.
Micheal Jordan's favorite sport used to be baseball but ever since he saw his older brother play basketball he wanted to follow his foot steps and start playing basketball to. Micheal Jordan tried out for a basketball team but, they would not let him join because, he was undersized and by the next summer he grew four inches taller and he worked and paid off; which then allowed him to play.
James Naismith the creator of basketball is holding the equipment to create it and that is a soccer ball and a peach basket.
Michael Jordan is one of the best players back then that persevered and was an inspiration to the people.
The three point line is the black line that is tracing the white half circle and the free through line is, the black line that is tracing the pink rectangle.
