The most elite basketball players absolutely love to play basketball. They want to play 24-7. They always have a ball in their hand and they are always trying to get up shots. They would rather play basketball than do just about anything else. When they aren't playing basketball they are watching it on TV or playing it on Playstation3. And most of them have been this way since they were little.
Do you have the same love for the game? Do you have the same passion? How important is basketball to you?
