I love basketball. I love to play it, watch it, and think through the cerebral aspects of the game; the thoughts and motivations, strategy and tactics. I like to look for the little things that work or fail, the screen set too soon or the roll that happened too late. I like defense and rotation. I like to know the coaches’ strategy for practice, walk-throughs, travel, and so on. So naturally a few months ago, when I had a day off from the 24/7 world of availability, imagine that, I took my day off to watch basketball, and more specifically my daughter’s middle school basketball practice.
