Ode to Michael Jordan This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

     This article says it all about basketball, sports, and champions. I also get a certain feeling before a game and don’t want the ball passed to me. But when I get the ball, all my nerves disappear - I do well under pressure.

Muhammad Ali’s quote is very true: Winners aren’t made in gyms. It doesn’t matter if you’re the biggest or strongest. The true winners at the game are the ones who have the most heart, desire, and work ethic. Michael Jordan shows all of these things.

Michael Jordan demonstrated an amazing work ethic. He loved basketball so much that even after he had been cut from his high school team, he still had love for the game and came back his senior year and was basically an MVP the rest of his career. I am not like Michael Jordan, but I do have a lot of heart for basketball.
