Playing sports is one of the most fun things there is to do. It could be football, hockey, baseball. The one sport that can be played every month and every week of the year is basketball.
The summer time lends itself to active participation in the sport outdoors. The outdoor surface could be concrete or asphalt. The weather really is not a factor unless it is raining. Even then die hards will play in rain. The winter months are no problem to find a place to play. The local area YMCA should have a gym. So join. They will probably have scheduled nights of pick up games to. So you can play with a variety of different people at different skill levels. If the YMCA is not an option, check with the public school in your taxing district. They may have open gym time. The taxes you pay, the gym is part yours to begin with.
Basketball is not a stand around and watch sport. You are constantly moving up and down the court. If that is not the case, then you don’t know how to play basketball the right way. Watching the professionals play, it is pretty easy to pick the players that left the college game before understanding how to play it the right way.
The one thing you must have when playing this sport is the right basketball shoe. Without the right shoe, you will probably look like jerk out on the court. You will be left in the dust with moves the other players make on you.
Having the right basketball shoe on your feet can make a world of difference to your game. All those quick moves and cuts players make, you will be able to stay with them. The fast breaks down the court, you can stay with them. The right basketball shoe will cushion your feet, ankles and knees. Your legs will last longer and be more useful to you when finally giving up playing the sport.
Whatever you do, get the right basketball shoe to play better, but more importantly will protect your precious ankles and knees.
