Nathan, did you watch the basketball game between the Rockets and the Bulls?
Certainly. What a terrific game it was!
Can you tell me the result? Which team won?
You didn`t watch it?
I was working overtime last night. So I missed the game.
That`s a pity. The Bullts beat the Rocket by 8 points
How was Thomas`s play?
Thomas had 16 points and seven rebounds.
That sounds not bad.
AWho is that guy?
BIt's Clive of course. Where did you come from? Every girl knows Clive!
AReally? He is my type.
BHe is everybody's type.
AWhat position does he play?
BShooting guard. The same as Michael Jordan!
AOh, I love Michael Jordan. He fills people's lives with great excitement.
BUsed to. But now he is too old to play in a fierce game like this. But Kobe is the upcoming superstar now.
AKobe is a good player but I heard he is a womanizer.
BThat is not true. They are just jealous of him!
AJordan is a legend, anyway. An idol that no one can replace. I think Clive can make a good professional basketball player. He is not just about muscles he also plays smart.
BYou know what, he is also an outstanding football player. He is surely to be a star of tomorrow.
ABy the way, do you know if he has a girl friend?
BYou are so not here! His girlfriend is one of the cheer leaders.
AOh, My chance is slim then.
Wendi: OK, so I wanna ask you who you think is the best player of all time.
Ken: All time?
Wendi: Basketball player.
Ken: Basketball player of all time? Well, that's a no-brainer. It's Michael Jordan. No one even comes close to what he's been doing, or what he did. He's one, what six, five, no five MVPs, six championships, scoring titles every year in the league. He makes his teammates better. By farthe best player to ever play the game.
Wendi: I wanna know who is the, kind of, strongest player right now that you could see filling Michael Jordan's shoes.
Ken: If you've been watching the NBA recently, you've probably heard the name LeBron James. He's probably like 21 right now, but he's already dominating the league. He takes a team and he's carried them to the playoffs, like it's just him, no one else on the team's good. He's done very well for himself.
Wendi: What do you think of the little man that could, Steve Nash from Victoria?
Ken: Steve Nash is amazing. He's everything a basketball player shouldn't be.
Ken: He's short, white, Canadian, floppy hair, but he's a really, really good basketball player. He's making his teammates better. Everybody wants to play with him because he's so good and, you know, he's doing real well in the playoffs right now. Maybe they might win the championship so... I mean, to MVP in a row, go Canada.
