"Basketball's Greatest Stars" by:michael grange

Evolution of Basketball: The game of basketball has came a long way. From the style of play, players, even where people play!
The games evolution lead to people being able to play anywhere at anytime, all you need is a goal, a ball, and a slab of concrete!
Another evolution of the game was international players. A great example is the 7'6 center out of China Yao Ming.
Basketball had been an Olympic sport since the Berlin games in 1936! This helped the NBA bring players from all over the world.
My personal reactions come from learning about the different teams and their success. One of my favorite teams out of the Eastern Conference is the Boston Celtics. One of the most successful teams winning 17 NBA championships!
Another very successful team is the Los Angeles Lakers out of the western conference. Right behind the Celtics with 10 NBA championships!
These two teams happen to be big rivals and the competitiveness between the two franchises date back even before the great Larry Bird and Magic Johnson!
