Basketball

Basketball is easily still one of my favorite sports in the world. As I got older and moved a bit away from playing baseball, basketball became my passion. Most of the free time I had for years was spent on a basketball court. If I had time to play, I was playing. And I was able to grow up in a great era. Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Michael Jordan, among others, had made the NBA must-see television and there was also a great era of college basketball on the horizon as well. While I may not physically play as much as I used to, my love for the game hasn’t changed and I still follow the sport with great enthusiasm.
