What if Lebron James was never in the NBA, and wasn’t alive?
What if basketball wasn’t a sport invented until 10 years later?
What if humans got to meet mystery animals like aliens, Bigfoot, and more?
What if humans turned into anything that they wanted to be?
What if nobody was alive?
What if neither the Earth nor the other planets in the solar system existed?
What if video games turned into real life video games?
What if famous people got to meet each person in the world?
What if your inspiration person meets you?
What if you could be a hero, and could get super powers?
What if everybody was a specific person?
What if your animal turned into a human, and knows how to talk any language?

    I like how these questions made me really think what would happen. If LeBron james was never born then there would not be a person that is going to break Micheal Jordan’s legacy. If the sport was ten years late then it would not be as evolved as it is today like hand checks. Someone would probably do something reckless like insult them attack them than humans would be at war with the aliens. If humans can shape shift then it would be a different world with rules on when you turn or what you can turn into also weapons that can stop animals. If nobody was alive then there would be no way for me to respond to this. Then we would be in another dimension. Then there would be a major problem because i can walk outside my house and see cars being stolen and people getting shot high speed police chases helicopters falling out the sky. If famous people meat everyone then there wouldn’t be as famous because it’s someone you know now and there just a successful person. If i met my role model i would probably have a stroke if i ever ran into LeBron i would beg for him to add me on snap chat. I would choose to travel through time and save lives and mistakes i have made. Everyone is a specific person because we all have unique things.

    Dear Mathew,
    I am interested in your post because you seem to look at things from another perspective. Not a lot of people think about the ¨What if¨ in anything. I believe that people should be grateful for the things they have because none of what we have today, like phones and computers, existed a long time ago. Something that was interesting was ¨What if nobody was alive?¨ This interested me because no one really thinks about things like this and what would happen if nothing or nobody was alive. Thank you for your post and I will be looking forward to your next post.

    Wow… you asked some very thought-provoking questions in this poem! My favorite was “What if neither the Earth nor the other planets in the solar system existed?” One question that popped into my head when I was finished reading it was: What if everything that happened in the world revolved around me, and my mind is like the control center of everything?

    Hi Mathew
    I really liked reading your post. I like how you asked what if to a lot of things that people don’t think about on a daily basis. Your post really opens peoples eye to other what ifs. I think in life there are a lot of what ifs. What if I don;t get into college. What if I don’t get a job. There are many what ifs out there.
