FEB. 12, 2018: A basketball super team is a team that has good strategy and good players. A super team never gives up. The whole team figures out a way to make a win. They work with each other and they figure out ways to win with each other, and work together to accomplish their goal.

Raysean Francisco says, “My Super Team is the Chicago Bulls because I think their strategy is to make the other team think that they are doing something they are not. They switch up and fake out a move. The other team thinks they know the move they are doing, but they really don’t and then they do the fake out move. And sometimes they do a move called the ankle breaker. The sports dictionary says that’s “a crossover dribble in which the sudden change of direction causes the defender guarding the ball handler to fall down.” (https://www.sportingcharts.com/dictionary/nba/ankle-breaker.aspx)

My Super Team is the Golden State Warriors. I think they have great people, a great strategy, good fakeouts and ankle breakers. They have the best strategy in the NBA. They have the best recovery, they shoot threes, which is the best thing to score more points.           

I heard on Dec. 6, 2017, that Stephen Curry sprained his ankle playing the game with the Charlotte Hornets. I feel bad about it but their score for the game was 101 to 87. My team still won.
