Hoops fans are sure to enjoy these inspiring and fun basketball poems and books.
From silly to more serious, this variety of basketball poetry will delight players of all ages!
As a player, I used to love reading basketball poetry from time to time.
And as a coach, I was always looking for good motivational poems and other sports motivational quotes to liven up our team meetings and give my players an encouraging boost.
Here are some fun hoops poems I found on YouTube.
Most of them are written by young kids, and I think you'll agree they're pretty clever. Not only are the lyrics unique, but the way the poets put the words to music and video is pretty cool, too.
Maybe you'll be inspired to write some sports poems of your own!

(I really liked this one. Here are the words:)
"The score is tied
Hands smooth with sweat
God, let the ball
Fall through the net.
I'm on the line
Shooting a pair
First one rolls off
Black hole despair.
Ball feels heavy
Bounce it once more
Let it drop for the score.
The ball is up
The ball drops in
