For myself it all started when I visited my family in the Philippines during the summer before gr.8. Now before this I liked basketball a bit. It wasn't a passion of mine or anything but I would toss the ball up in hopes of it falling through the rim. To pass time, my cousins would take me out down to a little rundown court they'd play on. After living with them for a couple of months, I fell in love with the game. Making the gr.8 team only increased my feelings for this sport. It became a passion of mine and I made many friends who share this passion. Basketball truly is one heck of a sport
So how about you? What's your story?
In my case, it all started with NBA Live 2008, I practiced swimming at the moment, but I occasionaly would shoot some hoops in this little basket I had at hom. I quitted swimming because it was too repetitive and started to watch NBA TV and checking out some teams in my area. I joined a team and my love for the game grew.

It started when Chris Paul came into the league. It inspired me that if he can make it out of NC, so can I. Also he was never the tallest or the fastest, just like me. But he had Heart !! I wanted to be like him. I want to be better than him. CP3
