BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Today I am going to write about a very important person who has died recently. This man is Moses Eugene Malone, his nickname was Big Mo. He was born the 23rd of March of 1955 and he had died the 13th of September of 2015. He was an American basketball player who played in both the American Basketball Association (ABA) and the National Basketball Association (NBA) from 1974 through 1995. He has won many and many awards, some of them are NBA All-Defensive First Team (1983) NBA All-Defensive Second Team (1979), ABA All-Rookie Team (1975)…

    Nowadays we have also a lot of good basketball players, such as Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Rudy Fernandez, Felipe Reyes… They are going to play the final of Europe and I hope they win this competition.

  6. Moses Eugene Malone was a professional basketball player who played in both the NBA and the ABA. He was born in Petersburg, Virginia on March 23, 1955 and died in Norfolk, Virginia on September 13, 2015 of a heart attack while he was sleeping at the age of 60. Malone played 21 seasons as a professional. Before retiring from basketball, he was the last ABA participant to play in the NBA.

    Malone began his professional career after finishing high school. He was selected in the third round of the 1974 ABA Draft by the Utah All-Stars. He was named an ABA All-Star rookie and played two seasons in the league until it merged with the NBA in 1976. Malone was a dedicated and physical player who drove the NBA in rebounds six times, including a five-season record at that time ( 1981-1985). He was nicknamed the "Chairman of the Boards" for his ability with rebounds. He ended his career as the all-time leader in offensive rebounds. Combining his ABA and NBA stats, Malone ranks the ninth all-time leader in points in his career (29,580) and third in total rebounds (17,834).

    In terms of his death, Malone died at the age of 60. He was in a hotel with other friends. Next morning, Malone's close friend and Hall-of-Fame partner, Calvin Murphy, said Malone didn't appear for breakfast before a golf tournament in Norfolk, Virginia. He found that very strange because he would not miss it. After that, Malone's friend asked security to go to his room to check that he was okay and, unfortunately, they found him dead from a heart attack.

    To put it in a nutshell, Moses Malone was an American basketball star who died 5 years ago. In addition, he will always be remembered for his offensive rebounding technique because he was the best. From my point of view, even though I didn't know him before looking up information about him, I'm sure he was amazing at basketball.
