Basketball Is For Everyone

Basketball is a very physical game. There’s a lot of pushing, bumping, and even fighting. I know some of us think that basketball is a Men’s sports; they think that women can’t play a physical basketball because they’re women. When I was still a kid, I thought that basketball is only for men. I remember my team had a tune-up game against the women’s basketball team. At first I was like “what?! We’re going play against girls?! Seriously?!” And I remember before the game I told my coach that I’m not going to play. But in second half I saw the women’s are good basketball players. They we’re up by 15 against us. So I decided to talk to my coach told him that I want to play. We still manage to win even though they we’re up in the 2nd half. On that day, Girls own my respect and after that game I always try to watch the WNBA (Women National Basketball Association) and NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association). Well, WNBA is not that intense like the NBA. NBA has more highlights and nice moves that WNBA but all I can say is Girls are good in basketball.
In conclusion, this topic about Masculinity and sports are getting viral. I mean we should treat each other equally. if we can play basketball, of course girls can play too. There is no gender inequality in sports. it doesn’t matter if you’re A Men, Women, or in any gender are you. As long as you have the passion and love for the game. As what Kevin Durant said “Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard” (Kevin Durant). If you really love the games just put a lot of hard work and do all the best that you can to achieve your dreams.
