Ashay Mehta Humanities 101-H05 Essay 3 – Draft IV Basketball = Theory + Practice Basketball is a game that strains a person mentally and physically. But some people believe that one can just learn the game in theory and master the skills using just that knowledge. Yet, other people believe that the more one practices, the better he or she will get, and that is all one will ever have to do to master the game. However, neither of these statements is true alone. In the game of basketball, theory cannot go without practice. Therefore, if you were to try to learn the basic skills without practicing them, then you would be going nowhere in your training. At the same time, if you simply attempted to practice the basics without out learning them in the first place, you would be going nowhere as well. Thus, we can state that the theory of basketball cannot be sufficient enough to master the game without the practice of basketball. So, a prospective player must implement both, theory and practice, in order to become better at basketball. Let us look at this debate from the point of view of those people who feel that learning the theory of basketball without practicing is not sufficient to succeed on the courts. Imagine attempting to learn how to shoot the basketball by just reading from a how-to manual. This task is impossible to master the technique without ever practicing.
