Sportsmanship means teamwork to me. I believe this because if you can work together with other people and when you win, you will not brag about to other people. Also with good teamwork you can win and have fun. With teamwork you can have good sportsmanship. Sportsmanship also means making friends to me. It can help make friends because if you are nice, people will like you. And if you beat them and do not brag or rub the loss in their face there is a good chance that you will become friends. Good sportsmanship can really make friends for you. Sportsmanship means competition to me. I believe this because without worrying about bragging you can have fun playing against other kids and they can have fun with you. Competition can also get you better and learn more about people and the game you are playing. Good sportsmanship can help you become a better player and get you more competition. Sportsmanship also means integrity. If you have integrity people will want to play you because a lot of people do not like playing with cheaters and unfair people. When you can admit you did something wrong like committing a foul (in basketball) people will like playing with you. But if you argue against almost everything people will not play with you and that is very bad sportsmanship. Having good sportsmanship is important to me because without it there would be so much fighting in sports instead of just having teamwork, integrity, competition, making friends and having fun playing the game you love. This is what sportsmanship means to me and why it is important to people in any type of games.
