Basketball\'s Greatest Players


There are many great players who had the talent to be all pro and lost
it in the streets. Probaly the two most famous to fail are Lloyd Daniels and
Earl Manigult. Both could of been all-stars but let the drugs and inner city
life destroy there chances. It\'s been said that Earl Manigult\'s best feat was
being able to jump up to the top of the backboard and take a dollar bill and
replace it with four quarters. One other rumor was he once dunked a basketball
backwards thirty-six times in a row to win a sixty dollar bet. Now to Lloyd
Daniels, said to be the best basketball player ever to play in New York he was
heavely recruited and signed with UNLV despite never graduating H.S.
His biggest downfall was his addiction to drugs since he was twelve years old.
Despite having anything he wanted and UNLV he was caught buying drugs and kicked
off the basketball team and out of school.
Next, the player who did make and continues to rock the up and rising
basketball world. The most famous and most known of the basketball players is
Michael Jordan. He has won four NBA titles and is the most recognized player
ever. Despite his pro career he was once cut from his H.S. team. Then two
years later he was a H.S. all-american. Two years later at the University Of
North Carolina Michael as a freshman hit the game winning shot to secure the
legendary coach Dean Smith his first ever collegiate championship. As a pro
playing for the four time defending champions he has averaged 32.2 points per
game, 5.9 assists per game, 6.4 rebounds , 2.7 steals, and 1 block. Michael
Jordan is the best role model for America\'s youth since Dr. J (Julius Erving)
and he\'s also a perennial all-star.
The game of basketball is the most up and rising game in the 90\'s.
People who make up the sport come from anyware from Cabrini Green Projects in
Chicago to New South Wales Australia. To end this, the game of basketball is
the most skill oriented sport and the people who play the game will never forget
