NBA has been around for almost 70years but if you didn’t know about NBA yo may think it has been around for over 700years for it rich history which can bring the limitless of internet to reach its end.
It is a sport played by two teams each which have five players on a rectangular court.They are techniques of ball handing e.g shooting, dribbling and rebounding.
A player has to score by hoop which is mounted on backboard. In the game there is a field goal score and three (3)pointer arc which is 3points.
It ends up with the team with highest score winning. Basketball is a unique sport unlike other sport it doesn’t do ‘coin toss’ or rotate scoring ends up on a quarters but rather rotates once at half time.
Player slam dunk, chase and block the ball, dribble the ball towards the basket and score points it sound easy to play and yes it is as long as one is driven by the passion and the whole fun in the game.
Just to note that NBA player are the most highly paid player in the world compared to other sports.
I am joined with Pamela, a student at the Multimedia university, who is a betting fan. she speaks to us about her journey and herself.
Kelvin:Tell us about betting:
Pamela:I don’t know a definition but I know I bet a lot.
Kelvin:How many times a day or week.
Pamela:I bet everyday, i could say i am addicted but not really cause i bet from a whole range of sports and i believe i can survive without it. i place bets on anything and i win.
Kelvin:How much do you spend on placing stakes?
Pamela:I place around a thousand shillings, its not that i have a lot of money, as you think. its just that the higher the amount you put in, the higher the results you get.Plus i win a lot and so my returns are high.
Kelvin: What if you lose?
Pamela:I cannot win everyday, i will just consider it a bad day.
Kelvin:Do you spend all your money here
Pamela:No, i set aside money for this venture, i just do not use any money given to me or earned. the journey has been awesome and i don’t see myself stopping soon.
