I loved B-ball when I was younger, had a hoop and board on the side of my house and a red, white and blue basketball I got in America on holiday. Grew up in the Air Jordan era, so I think I liked it because I liked MJ. Haven't played the game in years, although funny enough I very, very, briefly was messing about last night when I went to pay my five aside fees. We play in the school sports hall that has hoops and the storeroom door was open. All those basketballs, would have been rude not to.
Ha ha. I would have done the same if I'd of seen the basketballs too. (sidenote) What position do you play in five-a-side? I've watched basketball (more so European basketball lately than stateside as I don't have the right channels) for as long as I can remember and always preferred the glitzy stateside stuff compared to over here. But I am a late bloomer when it comes to playing. I picked a basketball up in 06/07 and used to practice shooting hoops on my own down in this big metal football cage. They ended up removing it and it is now a retirement home. Bah-humbug. Then I started shooting hoops in Canada in 08/09 and haven't since because of my back. But even if I could there isn't anywhere around here. It is great for fitness especially when you play football one day and basketball the next. I can't wait to get back. MJ was a phenomenal player; was he your all time favourite? I went off him after Looney Tunes .
