Dear friends, I am very happy and some how smiling and fulfilled with enjoyment ,while I am writing these lines. The blog, was meant to be just for football, but after I saw your interest and the fast growing popularity, I had decided to write more articles about other sports : basketball, tennis , baseball etc.
My great love is actually basketball. I started laying it , when I was 13 . It was about the magic seen from the T. V . broad-casted games and the genius of those times : Michael Jordan , Scottie Pippen, Charles Barkley, Kevin Johnson , Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and many great men between the rims.
You know , the most important and thrilling thing, I fell in love in basket is the maths , all the movements and plays, the great dynamic and the situations that can happen for a second or for a part of a second.
When you speak or think about basketball, the most important things are: jumps, percentages and the gracious moves of incredible athletes that float into the sky. It is like you are watching F16 or Stelt flying, not a human. Shawn Kemp, Michael Jordan, Lebron James, Koby Bryant, Vince Carter, Tracey McGradey and Spud Webb, they do not know what gravitation means.
When you have watches for over 10 times each, the movies ” Come Fly with me ” , “Air Time ” and ” Space Jam” , you are not just in love, you are totally crazy about this game .
Also not forgetting to mention one unbelievable player –Drajen Petrovic (rest in peace genius of all times). Have you heard that he stayed after the training to shoot over 500 free-throws, to shoot another 1500 shoots from 3 pointer , to dribble and to do all the things he was good as a God. Do you remember how modest he was and what smile he had? Hats down or him . Even Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan were astonished by his moves, shoots and kindness. When we lost Drajen, we lost not just a man, not just a genius basketball player, we lost an angel… R.I.P your basketball majesty …
Here in Europe, we have Euroleague, which this season had been won by Real Madrid. This is the main competition, where you can see the best players in our continent.
This is just the beginning, there will be more articles about this sport. Hope you liked, what you have read. Basketball is a place where 10 strong, smart and very tall men are creating magic in every mini-second of the game ……
