I love basketball but I don’t think basketball likes me that much especially after not playing for almost three years. When I was single, I was in the basketball court almost everyday. I wanted to be the next Larry Bird so I practiced shooting threes and free throws. So during games I would always be on my spot to shoot the ball.
The problem was I was good in shooting but my dribbling, rebounding and defense sucks. In short, no team would want to have me because I forgot to practice the other fundamentals of basketball.
