My Other World: Basketball

Every girl has different fancy. We like sky crapper heels, body hugging dress and the latest make-up trends. Yes, I also love them too. But what sets me apart from that stuff is the fact that I love Basketball. I am really addicted to NBA. You read it right. I am into National Basket Association, Philippine Basketball Association, UAAP and the list goes on. I find the thrill of the game interesting and exciting!

Basketball is a widespread sport active as we know it. It involves team work. Every team has five members starting line up with a shooting guard, point guard, power forward, small forward and a center. The center is the one jumping, with the tip off is happening. It signals that the game is about to. It is very basic in basketball. The required skill are dribbling, rebounding, shooting, passing and knowing the violations that should not be committed. Points are incurred when shooting the ball. Points can be one point, two points and the biggest is three points when it will be shoot from beyond the arc. Those are the basic knowledge that should be familiarize when watching a basketball game. It would tricky sometimes but it is an enjoyable to watch.

I began loving this game when I watched the Miami Heat playing last 2011 when they chased the Championship but fall short. I was really mesmerized by the moves of the players specially their Big 3 as they call it. I have followed the team even up to now. Because of my fancy for this sport, I was also encouraged to watch UAAP and PBA. I always have a team that I am betting. For PBA, it is the Petron Blaze Boosters and for the UAAP it is the FEU Tamaraws.

Basketball has become a vital part of my being. I am always updated with every game that is being played. When you follow me in twitter, you can see that I follow NBA and PBA players, fashion bloggers, online shops, actors and actresses and volleyball players. That’s how wide the scope of me. I tweet when my teams are winning, and I’m so quite when they are losing-a typical fan reaction.

I love basketball because of the thrill of the game. It encourages teamwork, communication and not individual game.

Do you have something to say about basketball?
