Jordan loves basketball. Every Saturday, he and his brothers go to the park to play. As long as there are not enough people to fill the team, his brothers will give him the opportunity to play. But he is not tall enough and his passes are always intercepted. He is upset about this, but his mother has a magic formula! "Sprinkle some salt into your shoes every night, and then pray. Soon, you will grow taller!" Jordan was skeptical, but he did what his mother said... Two months went on and he wore the same clothes and shoes every day and practiced non-stop on the court. However, his height did not changed. He felt dejected again, but Dad has a different idea... "If you grow taller, maybe you can play better, but practice, determination, and dedication are what makes you a real winner!"
