I watched a lot of basketball tonight. Most of last night’s Blazers win over the Lakers. Some of the Raptors over the Celtics. And the first half of the Jazz-Warriors game. All really good stuff.
And I definitely enjoy watching basketball, especially with how Steve Kerr and the Golden State Warriors have changed the game with excellent spacing, passing, shooting and pace.
I also watched the first 30 minutes of the massive “Basketball: A Love Story” documentary. Although I definitely like basketball it’s a like not a love.
I was a never a good shooter, pretty slow and awkward. I like playing basketball but never got the love. There was even a pickup game at the old Westbrook, Maine high school gym next door. I went once or twice and felt usually outclassed by college and high school aged kids.
It helps to be a good athlete to excel at basketball. Which I wish I was but really am not.
