“Basketball is my favorite sport. Basketball means a lot to me. It’s where I met a lot of my childhood friends and it helped me become the person I am now. It always helped me take stress away and I just love the game. Basketball is a part of me and if I’m not playing it I feel like I’m missing a big part of myself.”
