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. Showtime was an era in Los Angeles Lakers history when the National Basketball Association (NBA) team played an exciting run-and-gun style of basketball. Led by Magic Johnson's passing skills and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's scoring, the team relied on fast breaks and won five NBA championships. This so explosive style became a sports phenomenon, because of many stars of Hollywood started being present at the games of the Lakers. It was a spectacle never seen on the basketball.

    Earvin Johnson (Magic Johnson) was born on 14th August, 1959. He was a basketball player and also a basketball coach.
    Magic Johnson studied at the university of Michigan, but in 1979 he left the university to play with Los Angeles Lakers. He won with Los Angeles Lakers five titles of the NBA. He helped the Lakers to become one of the most famous teams in the NBA. He was three times the Most Valuable Player of the NBA.

    In 1993 he left the Lakers, because he was diagnosed with AIDS. One year later he won the golden medal with the USA basketball team in the Olympic Games of Barcelona. His last season was the 1993-1994 where he showed again his talent.

  2. Earvin "Magic" Johnson (14th august, 1959) was an american basketball player, considered the best of the history. He played in The Angeles Lakers when it published that it had contracted the virus of human immunodeficiency, abandoning the professional sport to combat it, except for a brief period in 1996. He won the NBA title in five occasions. Magic Johnson formed part of the Dream Team in the Olympic Games in 1992 (Barcelona) where EEUU won the gold medal.

    In 1991, the player made public that he had contracted HIV virus which forced him to withdraw from the practice of basketball immediately. With the support of his professional friends, he became the first openly HIV positive player to play in the NBA.

  3. Magic Johnson was an American professional basketball player who played for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA. He played as point guard for 13 seasons. After winning championships in high school and college, He was selected in the first position of the NBA draft in the 1979 by the Lakers. He won the NBA championship in his first season, He has won five rings during his whole carreer. He retired in 1991 after announcing that he had contracted HIV, but He retourned a year latter to play the All-Star Game, winning the All-Star MVP Award. Something that you probably don´t know is that He retired three times.

    In my opinion, He is a unique player, almost impossible to see a player like him never again. He was 2,06m tall, so tall to play as a point guard, but he was such a skillful player, such a great 3 point shooter. There´re no players like him nowdays, but if I had to compare him to a nowdays NBA player I would compare him with Kevin Durant, my favourite player, I would compare Magic with Kevin Durant Because He is 2,11m tall, and he plays as a power forward, but he is as skillful as a point guard, and from my point of view, the best shooter in the history
