If you have a sports dad then you’ve probably been told to play sports a lot while you were still growing up and though back then you might have seen sports as hard work that your dad made you do and the only thing you had to look forward to were the snacks your mom made for you by the time you were done playing. Now that you’ve grown up, you have a better understanding of why your dad made you play sports and why kids are encouraged to play sports in general.
You might have been told that if you play basketball, you will grow taller and stronger and while that might come across as just one of those silly things parents say to keep you going, there might actually be truth to it. Basketball is a pretty popular sport as both a competitive game that people take very seriously and also as a casual and fun outdoor activity. Playing basketball is far more than just tapping the ball on the ground aand then tossing it into the hoop, it requires your whole body to be fast and your mind to be focused.
Even if you’ve never played basketball before, once you’re told the simple to understand dynamics of the game and actually start playing, you’ll understand how intense a game of basketball can be and then you’ll automatically have more respect for highly acclaimed basketball stars like Derek Hood – maybe you’ll want to watch them play to learn a thing or two from them so you can try them out the next time you play. Basketball is really that engaging and captivating of a sport once you get into it and if you’re already into it, there’s no way you’ll ever want to miss out on an opportunity to play.
