Wanna know why I always beat you? It's because I am a master of gravity and friction.
See! By knowing exactly how strong gravity is, I can shoot perfectly! Also, I can make quick moves on the floor because of the friction between my shoes and the court!
Ughhh! I'm so bad at basketball!
Don't hate the player, hate the gravity!
Gravity has a huge effect on sports! For instance in basketball, players shoot the ball into the air, in hopes of scoring a basket. But, with no gravity to bring the ball back down, no one could ever score!
The static friction between his shoes and the basketball court allows him to have great traction! Also, the friction between his hand and the ball allows him to dribble, pass, and shoot.
It's true...don't hate the player or the game. Hate gravity and friction!
