The anime starts with the introduction of Sakuragi, the leader of his school gang and a very off-board person for the girls. After entering high school, he finds numerous girls but all of them seem to be afraid of him. Furious with all the rejection by the girls, he started to get tense. All the other boys are having a girlfriend, while Sakuragi, a famous boy, has none. 

Entering his first year on the Shohoku basketball team. He finds a girl named Haruko. 

It was love at first sight and he finds that Haruko is everything that he was looking for in a girl. Impressed by her, he further finds that she is not like the other girls and isn’t scared of him. After rejoicing with the fact that he finally found the girl of his dreams, Sakuragi was in another world. 

For Haruko, he started to know Sakuragi and automatically found that he has an athletic personality. She introduced him to the Shohoku basketball team. 

At first, Sakuragi was sacred to join the team, as he wasn’t well confident enough to pull of the game. Further, as he wasn’t having any prior experience and knowledge about basketball, he doesn’t find it interesting. Also, he used to consider that Basketball was a game of losers only because he had already experienced something similar before. 

After some time, Sakuragi somehow joins the team and also finds out that despite all of his reasons, he is still able to play the game with much professionality. He has a natural athlete thing on his body that Hakuro has immediately checked out. 

But the main reason why Sakuragi joins the basketball team was just to impress Hakuragi and get into a relationship.

As he started to get more into a game, he found it interesting. He started to love the game and thought that it was something that made him happy. Now he has completely forgotten the fact that he once played the game just to impress Hakuro and all. 

The show started with more chapters where the team started to play the game seriously and now they were competing against the national league. In between all these, there are many people who get into the game and their personal life.
