Depends on how and what you are comparing to with a Basketball player.
"His lay up was so perfect it was like he the best basketball player ever to make such a shot."
there is no "the cat jumped like a basketball player" simile in Tom Sawyer. I checked. that chapter about Tom giving Peter the painkiller is on pages 116-123
for sure it Micheal Jordan i mean everybody knows that he is like the best basketball player ever I've always dreamed to be a basketball player
my romodel best basketball player
I think you mean synonym. A simile is a comparison using like or as. A synonym is two different words having the same meaning. but a synonym for round could be circular. a simile for round could be "The sun is as round as a basketball" Hope this helps!
Michael Jordon wanted to be remembered as a basketball star, he wanted to send the message out to people to follow their dreams, and perhaps, if you work hard enough, you may accomplish them like him.
A simile compares two subjects directly, using the words like or as to create the visual comparison.
Offense is like a finely tuned machine, it only works well if all the parts do their job.
simile its a simile when you use "like"
