Heck, I even love playing basketball on the outdoor courts in the summer, but the NBA has never appealed to me. Maybe it's because I don't know the game inside and out, or perhaps there's just a disconnect between playing and watching, or maybe I haven't grown fond of it because my shot is still terrible (much to the appeal of my friends' laughter); I couldn't tell you for sure. Even March madness, with all of its close contests and upsets and fast-paced games, struggles to truly command my interest for more than a couple games.
I'm coming clean about it because as much as I have tried to show more interest, I simply hit a wall in caring about the game, and I constantly wonder why.
