Fact is, basketball just isn’t as popular in the South as in other places, and add to the fact that I’m a short white guy who hasn’t played in a game in probably…7 years?
But I love it…and for reasons I can’t always describe. But I always loved creating my own teams for video games, which really started with that disc pictured above. I’d load that up on my dad’s PC and be there for hours.
Basketball moves faster than the glacial pace of football, and at it’s best, it’s people doing instantaneously creative and athletic things in the blink of an eye.
I’ve started writing more about the NBA for a site called Ballerball. They mostly do parodies and sorta silly mock stuff which is really all I can do. I don’t know how to do hardcore analysis, I just like having fun with it. It’s a different sort of writing for me, so it frees up part of my brain to think differently.
Yes, there are a lot of iCarly references in there, but keep watching for more.
