Best of Free Basketball Poems

We thought we would just let the power and the beauty of these poems by Thailor Parker and Patrick Michael Cassidy speak for themselves.

We will catch up to you later after you have had ample time to digest what these words have to say.

“Slam, Dunk, and Hook”

Basketball is a way of life.

Eat, sleep, breath, basketball.

Go out there, play your very hardest.

Play harder next time.

We are untouchable, immortal– high above the clouds.

As long as we give it our all nothing can go wrong.

Moving in ways we didn’t know we could, straining to reach the net just out of our grasp.

As we play we are in our own little world, invincible, untouchable.

Nothing can bring us down.

We command the court, everything is as we want it to be.

Yearning to make the basket, just to get ahead.

SWISH! Gotta play. Gotta win.

How was that? We thought so and now on to number two in the collection of great and free basketball poems.

Author: Patrick Michael Cassidy, USA



As I dribble down the court

I hear the whistle blow

The ref yells out two shots

And sends me for a free throw

I make my first shot it goes down with a swish

But for my second shot I could only wish

I really want to make it

Go ahead and save the game

But instead I air-balled and felt really lame

Coach called a time out and said I want the ball

Steal it on the throw in and we will win it all

The center throws the ball in and our player jumps in front

He throws his little hands up and the ball goes bump

It’s in the air now and it is right where I can see

So I jump as high as I can and it lands right on me

I dribble to the three point line, stopped and popped a shot

But next thing that I knew it bounced right out

The teams scrambled for a rebound we’re still trailing them by three

But out of nowhere our team grabs the ball and throws it back out to me

I try to take the three again and this time it’s a swish

I never could have done it without our team’s dish

My coach said I saved the game with my Hail Mary shot

He jumped up and down and celebrated quite a lot

We’re going to the championship

Hooray Yee hah Yippee

We never could have done it without Patrick Cassidy
