    I love the adrenaline you get in basketball

    but I recently sprained my ankle after colliding with a "shaq"-like friend of mine in midair. I MISS BASKETBALL.

    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 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...

    Basketball is my favorite sport I love the game.

    When I was younger I was always the best on my travel team and I still play for fun. I always try to go to a Miami heat game against the Celtics and I am a die hard HEAT FAN!

    Kansas lost and the guy the sixers want the

    most, scored like 3 points. all this makes me very uneasy inasmuch as the sixers may want to ride on his scoring. i am unsure about him as a draft choice at this time. duke got bounced early and the other potential choice did not have a bad game. maybe he is the one.

    Shootaround Listening To Music

    One of my favourite things to clear my head nowadays is to load my mp3 with my favourite music and get on the court during the night,when I'm alone.There,everything leaves my head.There's just me,my music and my ball.Love it and wish i had started doing it earlier.

    hard living in philly

    and watching the sixers as they strive for the #1 pick. Good thing we own every pick in the second round. heard the nba may create a 3rd round and give us all those picks. we may be able to corner the market of what will never be.

    Basketball isn't just a game to me.

    It's my stress reliever and the one thing in life that I know for sure I'll always have. Sure because of it I may be first pick for a boys pick up game instead of first pick for a date. But at the end of the day, my goal is a college scholarship to UCLA or Duke, not to win prom...

    I loved the game. Not because I was a spoiled rich kid whose parents took her to every game in the area, but because I loved the basic concept of throwing a ball through a hoop. Every time I was mad or happy or whatever I would walk to the park and shoot, dribble, and run. All i...
