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.

Quidditch has   four   balls   and   six   hoops,   three   at   each  end.  Seven  players  fly  on  brooms  and  try  to   score   points   by   throwing   the   quaffle   throw   one   of  your  team’s  three  goals.  The  opposing  team’s   keeper   and   three   chasers   will   try   and   stop   you.   The  two  beaters  fly  with  bats  and  nock  the  two   bludgers  at  the  opposing  team  to  knock  players   of   their   broom.   The   game   will   end   when   a   seeker   catches   the   snitch.   The   snitch   being   caught   by   a   seeker   results   in   one   hundred   and   fifty  points  for  their  team.  Every  time  one  of  the   chasers   gets   the   quaffle   in   one   of   the   hoops,   their   team   is   rewarded   with   ten   points.   When   the   snitch   is   caught,   whichever   team   has   more   points  win.
