Usually, boys learn to give me mutual respect 5 minutes after they see me on court. Why do they have to learn it?
Boys usually stick that unpleasant face at me once they see me. They usually wear expensive tees, shorts, shoes, and even to their bags and water bottles. What do I have? A random t-shirt from a sale, shorts that aren’t fit for my dad, average shoes, some grocery bag, a plastic bottle and an old basketball I got from my uncle. Furthermore, I’m a girl. Therefore, I can’t really blame them for thinking that I’m just some random teenage girl trying to mess around.
But then, there’s one thing that basketball has taught everyone on Earth: respect. We pay respect honor each other regardless of age, race, gender, social status, background etc. We recognize excellence measuring one’s skills, effort and sportsmanship. That’s how basketball has bounded everyone together for ages.
It is inevitable that we sometimes underestimate people, as pride is human nature. But after that, we learn to admire each other’s greatness, and together, we strive for perfection.
