Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh to Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant to Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, the list goes on and on. From assist to alley-oops, it all comes down to teamwork and helping each other win games. Teamwork is a significant factor in sports and I love seeing players come together with respect for one other to display each athlete’s skills and talents.

Player’s Shine

From Odell Bechham Jr.’s one handed catch to Stephen Curry’s three-point shooting, players always have that one game or moment that makes them stand out. All it takes is less than a minute to make an amazing play and in a blink of an eye a player’s career changes and their skills become well known.

The first time being on a professional team can be nerve-racking, but it can likewise be an astonishing opportunity to show the world the rookie’s skills and talents they have gained through college. Making a first impression is exceptionally important and can determine how the organization and the world portrays the player.

Making History

What athletic doesn’t want to make history for their team? It’s an accomplishment that makes them feel like they can achieve any goal they put their mind to. Many teams have made history and it seems that each year a team does exactly that.

Emotion and Passion

Seeing players like Richard Sherman, Peyton Manning and Allen Iverson play with heart each time they step out on the field or court, shows they are passionate about what they do and they express their emotions on and off the field. Observing these players emotion and passion for the game, causes me to admire sports even more.

From close games to buzzer beater wins, sports is pure entertainment and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Not only is the game entertaining, but the players come at a close second. To touchdown dances to 3-point celebrations, sports can be serious and entertaining all at the same time.

The Competitiveness

What is sports without a little competition? Even though the competitiveness of sports can bring out the best and worst of players, it brings the tension in the way athletes play and it goes back to their emotion and passion of the players to win the game.

Family Bonding

From Sunday and Thursday Night football to holiday games to “take me out to the ball game” sports is a way to connect with family and have a great time together. Sports is not only just for family bonding, but it’s also a way to bond with friends and enjoy each other’s company.

If you have run into that awkward silence phase and all else fails, sports is always the main go to for conversations starters. It’s as simple as “Did you watch that game last night?” or “who do you think will win the Super Bowl or Championship?” Sports have become nationwide that everyone from children to adults love to talk and discuss sports.
