Interview with Lebron James
Hi I’m here with Lebron James basketball legend. I’m going to ask him some interesting questions. Why did you choose 6 for your number? Well I’ve had this number since I was a kid and all through my childhood it’s brought me good luck. Ok. How did you feel when you won your first grand final? Once I won my first grand final I new I chose the right team. What are your strengths for your position? Well I’m fast so I can get into the basket quickly and I love to shoot so that’s my role. How come you changed to Miami Heat? Well I changed to Miami Heat because I wanted more money and I thought I might win a grand final. Which team do you like better Miami or Cleveland? I like Miami better because I got more money and I feel that my teammates in Miami work better with me. So Lebron, which MVP do you like the most and why? Well I’m thinking about picking the one most recent when Miami beat Oklahoma all players played great and it was one of the most exciting games. Lebron, my fans really want to know what your favourite position is and why? Well my favourite position is power forward because it involves shooting and dribbling the ball. What other things do you enjoy besides b’ball?
I like NFL because I’m really aggressive and I’m really fast. What is your play and why? Well I really enjoy the alley-‐oop because when Dwayne Wade throws it to me at rim I can do any sort of dunk like the windmill, which is my favourite dunk. What influenced you to become a basketball legend? Well you know Magic Johnson Yes. He was a b’ball legend and on his adds he would say ‘practise every day if you want to become a basketball legend like me.’ So that’s what influenced me. OK. That’s all the time we have with Lebron James hope to see you next time on the sports channel.

Fire bolt Review The Fire bolt is an international standard broomstick and used in the wizard and witch sport, Quid ditch. It is 36 inches long and has metal handles and pedals. The broom is made of ash wood and birch twigs. Who makes the broomstick is still unknown although it has great speed and can reach 150 miles per an hour in just 10 seconds. The Fire bolt has a great turning ability, as it turns so fast that it feels as though the broom is doing what you’re thinking instead of controlling it. There aren’t many negatives and it is the best broom so far. I give it 9½ snitches out of 10.
