Asthmatic feeling after exercise and sharp pain

After long periods of any sport like basketball, if I'm really active meaning if I'm running full court back and forth for more than an hour, I get this asthmatic feeling (according to my friends) where I can't breathe in deeply. If I try to breathe in deeply, halfway through it I would just start coughing. (and when I breathe theres this airish? sound that I don't know how to describe..) It only happens when I really exhaust myself in sports though. Is it normal? It usually goes away 1 or 2 hours after I stop. Or am I getting Exercise Induced Asthma or something?

Another problem not related to the previous one is that sometimes when I wake up I feel this tiny sharp pain slightly below the chest but above the stomach on the ribcage, to the left. It doesn't irritate me throughout the day but if I breathe in deeply, the pain gets stronger as I breathe. Massaging on the area where I can feel the bone soothes it a little. Sometimes it disappears in the later part of the day, sometimes it disappears the next day when I wake up. It occurs maybe twice per month or something.
