Basketball Blues: A Pastiche

Basketball Blues: A Pastiche

Anonymous , Writer

Basketball caused me problems I hadn’t known I could have.  Stress, anger, frustration.  Although we had teammates to back us up, favoritism constantly got into the play.  Favoritism?  You would think that no longer exists in sports.  “Who’s the best player?” “Who do we make get all the points?” “Make sure you get the ball to only her!” Although others put in the extra work off the court, the favoritism somehow still shows on the court.   It brings a feeling of anger like someone constantly punching you.  Eagerness leading to energy with energy leading to exhaustion causing stress at the end of the day for only one person. Myself. I feel as if I’m getting plowed by a truck everyday at practice having to do more work than the favorites. Favoritism should be a thing in the past and is long overdue.
