The Ex-Basketball player is a descriptive poem about a man named Flick Webb. Flick was a star basketball player for his High school team the wizards. Flick scored a country record for points and everyone loved watching him play as if seemed as if “the ball loved flick”. Flick never focused on anything other than basketball which costed him because his life only consist of pumping gas and changing tires. I love how the author of the poem details Flick as “The Ex-Basketball Player” which helps tell that Flick is nothing more than a man who played basketball, normally when someone is writing about another person they just use the person's title. But the author in this one uses the only thing that Flick is good for which is his old basketball skills.
