"Play Basket Ball Like a Pro" by Nate Leboutillier is a great book for people who wants to play basket ball like a professional. This book has all the steps that you need to be a good basket ball player. I love how at the last chapter of this book talks about teamwork. It is true you can be the best basketball player but basketball is a team games. Without team work you won't be able to play basketball. I like how they give tips about communicating and listening to your team mates while your playing basketball. It also talks about having confidence while your playing basket ball because without having confidence you won't make any shots. It also talks about hard work because without hard work you wouldn't be a great basketball player like Michael Jordan. I especially love how they use quotes that are written from each because these quotes helps people to motive themselves and play basketball. This book is great for kids who wants to play basket ball because lots of kids who plays basketball wants to get into the NBA and it's their dream to be a famous basket ball player. I also like how they use picture of great NBA player in action playing basket ball. Tsewang Tenzin 8-409
