How I Fell in love (My Background Story)

First i am very new to blogging and i’m very excited to tell my story. Sharing my insight on basketball concepts, players, and trends. My goal is to someday be in the NBA world. My dream is to one day be an NBA Executive.

I grew up in the 90’s in Hartford ,Connecticut, we didn’t have major sports teams. Growing up i was surrounded by NBA fanatics.

My Story:

I love everything about basketball i live, breath, and i enjoy talking about it to anyone and everyone who is willing to listen. My ideas are always progressing about basketball and how the game is forever evolving. I started watching the NBA in the mid 90’s with my father who was also passionate about sports. In my house during the mid 90’s Michael Jordan was the greatest player to ever. My first time as a kid remembering Micheal Jordan playing is when he came back from out of retirement during the 95 season i remember seeing him play against the Orlando Magic in the playoffs. Like every kid from that era we love MJ and wanted to be just like him. I would go in backyard and shot hoops thinking i would be the next MJ. Unfortunately my basketball career was derailed with injuries and misfortunes that life brought to me. But never the less my passion for the game of basketball has become even stronger now. I’ve been watching the NBA now for over 20 seasons and a lot has changed about basketball.

Fast Forward:

Since i’m an adult now i don’t have the time like i used to play basketball, but when i do get the chance. I still talk a lot about basketball to my friends, family, and of course random people that want to debate or just chat about basketball. Recently this year my wife had gotten me a basketball, because she said i talk about it so much. The real joke is the last time i actually played basketball. Ya i would play random pick up games every so often but would often get discourage because of my height and my lack of progression. I couldn’t even remember the last time i played a somewhat competitive game.  Well this past summer i actually started training again for basketball on my days off early Saturday morning’s i will spend 2-3 hours just shooting, practicing dribbling drills, and other drills. I started feeling really good about myself. Started watching basketball videos of how i can improve my game.

3 things that drastically changed about my basketball game:

Basketball IQ (Vision)

Shooting

Dribbling

I have been practicing for about 5 months but since it’s getting cold i’m thinking about joining a league soon. I will keep you updated on my dream to one day become an NBA Executive.
