What is BASKETBALL.....?
*Submitted by Deepak Sharma*
What is basketball?
Is it just a game.....or something more than that......? Is it a group of people chasing a ball, going for baskets or jumping around ....or is it a group of people putting aside religion, sex, colour.....and coming together as a team. Is it a game where the powerful dominate on court or a game where an old wise coach controls things from the sidelines..... Is it a game where rich guys go for costly Nike-Underarmor kicks or a game where it is not the money but the team jersey and the team name on it which really matters? Is it a game where tall players like Shaq, Mutombo, Ibaka stamp their authority or small players like Iverson, Nate, Webb, Isaiah etch their names in the history of basketball.... Is it just a game of discipline and hard work or a game where a tattoo n street look doesn't make you a criminal or uncivilized..... HAHAHAHA...... Sometimes it is not just a game..... It is a religion where you respect your coach as your father, teammates as your brother and sister.... It is a caste where a white cheers for a black/brown/yellow player.... It is a society that respects a player on the basis of his skills and game I.Q and not according to his financial status..... It is a world where players come together to raise their team and not individualism...... But what actually is BASKETBALL......is it still just a game....
The call is yours… see ya…
