I can't play basketball, which is probably why I don't watch it. First, I lack in the height department. Second, I never understood when I could move, when I could shoot, etc. I always would "double dribble" or "travel", even though I thought
I was doing the same movements as everybody else. I gave up, hacky-sack was much easier.
Now soccer, that's easy. Kick ball with feet, don't touch with hands. Run like crazy.
Oh, and keep one man from the opposite team between you and opponent's goal.
