The poet writes about a high school basketball star, who has taken his talent nowhere and eventually ended up doing a menial job at a gas station. The poem is built around the main character Flick Webb, who used to be a highly talented basketball player, but due to his lack of commitment to his goals, is now confined...

...Basketball Player” by John Updike John Updike’s poem, “Ex Basketball Player,” portrays the character Flick Webb, who used to be a famous basketball player while studying in school. Updike presents the poem by means of an anonymous narrator’s reminiscences about Flick. He has played for “Wizards,” a high school team and still claims the unbeaten county record of 390 points.
