    I don't even care about offense

    Basketball is my passion,

    it is everything for me. I have a lot of problems, but basketball seems to be the only thing that has been there for me every time that I need. When I feel bad, I just go outside, grab the ball, and start shooting. Basketball is the greatest gift that I ever had. I just want to...

    Lebron James' Important Quote Of His.

    “Basketball isn't easy. All my life I've been striving to make myself better. It's a full time commitment. To be the best, you have to work the hardest. You have to chase what seems impossible over and over and over again, because giving up is not an option, and when you feel...

    I love the feeling of dribbling up

    and down the court. Hearing the swish of a perfect shot. And the feeling after a hard game or practice and knowing u tried ur best. Whenever I need to calm down or get something off my mind, I play basketball.

    I haven't been on EP for a while. But that Kansas vs Oklahoma game on Monday was probably the best game of college basketball I've ever seen. As a Kansas fan, both teams absolutely deserve the number 1 spot and I don't think Oklahoma should drop a single spot in the polls. Had...

    Congrats on the West winning a record setting

    all star game. Russell Westbrook wins the MVP for the second straight game. Kobe getting an all star send off from the Toronto fans. The introductions were pretty awesome. Drake meh! Man the three point shooting tonight was ridiculous tonight. From both teams.

    I have a passion for basketball nothing will

    ever take that away from me. I personally think it's harder than football because it requires more technique and athleticism believe it or not. There are less breaks in a basketball game then in a football game. Not only that but it's faster paced too. I can literally go forever...

    until you've watched a game of SlamBall. Looks fun as hell to play but it's a full contact sport and gets vicious. Im really surprised it's not popular anymore, I can watch it all day.

    Raptors only 1.5 games behind Cleveland.

    Hopefully they catch them. Would be easier being #1 seed than being number #2 seed right now, probably will end up being #2 seed anyway though..

    My team are the Plymouth Raiders.

    I saw them play a year ago. It was a good time. I live too far away to regularly attend their games but I will always support them. Their mascot is a fox.
