  7. The ways that you created contents or presented this is so easy to understand . So helpful >

  8. Hey you, Jesus is real! He loves you and died for you. You are never too far gone to accept Him in your heart! 🙂 Have a good day!!💝

  9. when it’s a foul do refs in basketball hold up their hand then they say what foul after? Sorry I’m new at basketball just starting

  10. Basketball is the only sport where the rule book contains players' names.
    For example, "If you move without dribbling the ball, and if your name is not Lebron or Harden, then…"

  11. what's the line for that's after the penalty line (before the overall halfcircle tough

  22. thank you so much i have a game today and i don’t know the rules as much as the other girls and watching your video on positions was really helpful to!

  23. In in 9th grade and I'm trying out for basketball but I know nothing about it😩and this helped so much thank u

  24. I don't think I've ever posted a comment on YouTube before, but you guys really deserve a huge shout out. I've been searching all over YouTube for basketball fundamentals that a beginner can understand – as in 1st and 2nd graders – but most of the videos are hard to follow (for young beginners) because often the speakers talk too fast, and the moves are too fast as well. Your slow motion shots and easy-to-follow explanations are SO HELPFUL. And because the videos are VERY short and very specific, the concepts are easy to grasp, and the topics are easy to find. You did a great job. Thank you so much!

  25. Thank you for this concept it took me 16 years in order to understand basketball 😭🤗

  26. the girls basketball team at my school doesnt have enough players to compete so my friend convinced me to join….wish me luck lol

  27. I m have my basketball practical. And it's been 2 yrs since I played. It helped to remember things. Thank you sikana team ☺

  28. I went to my second or third live basketball game last night with my brother. I didn’t really have a side until the woman in the row behind me started slamming on a seat a few down the row from me and screaming for the team my brother’s school was playing against. Out of pure spite, I supported my brother’s team and they ended up winning the NCAA championship for the Southland conference. A victory has never felt so good.

  29. Good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good good
