Every sport has two kinds of fans, the kind that know when there’s going to be a game and already have opinions of how the team they’re supporting should be playing the game in order for them to win but they don’t actually play the game they love so much themselves, for them it’s just quality entertainment that they’re very emotionally invested in. Then there are the kind of fans that actually play the game very actively and when they sit down to watch a match on TV, they’re not necessarily rooting for a team, they’re actually watching the players play to learn from them.
Now, we’re not saying that the fans who don’t play the game aren’t true fans but if you love a sport so much and have the energy and youth to be playing it, you should go out and play the sport for yourself. A game such as basketball is more than just a fast paced, adrenaline jerking sport, it’s a great exercise that will benefit you both physically and teach you discipline. If you’ve been idolizing players such as DHood, you might as well try and put their techniques into play by yourself and become a deeper part of the sport you like so much.
You’ll become even deeply attached to the sport and even though you might not be the best at first, you’ll learn faster than most people do because of all that time you’ve spent playing the game by yourself. Your cardiovascular health will definitely thank you for it and over time, you’ll just feel more energetic in general because of all that running around you do while playing and how it builds your leg’s strength.
