Feedback: Quite good. However, there are a few careless mistakes, such as ‘at 1982’ and using a capital letter for ‘He’ after a comma.

  • You need to say what ‘MVP’ means, as in British English we say ‘man of the match’, so British English readers might not know what ‘MVP’ means.
  • For records, use ‘the’ in front of each record, because it is a ‘superlative’, like comparative and superlative adjectives.
  • If you write ‘one of the’ you must use a plural noun; eg. ‘One of the greatest basketball players of all time.’
  • People are interested in a subject or hobby. The rule is, if you are describing your or a person’s feeling, use ‘_ed’, if you are describing a thing or an activity, ie. the cause of the feeling, use ‘_ing’. For example, ‘I am interested in football, but volleyball is not interesting.’
  • ‘Beside’ (no ‘s’) describes a place, ‘besides’ (with an ‘s’) is similar to ‘as well’.
  • You haven’t put any references or a bibliography, which would cause you to fail in the real assessment.
