In the past, I couldn’t watch an NBA game because I didn’t understand how basketball was being played. But when your kids are hooked into basketball, sometimes you are left with no choice but to watch an NBA game with them just to show that you really support their interest for the sport. That’s how I learned the rules of the sport. I learned what the 3-seconds violation is all about, what the fast break is and why technical fouls are being called by referees. See, I know the jargon already!
The downside is that I have to give in when my kids want a Kobe Bryant and Lebron James shoes from Nike. Oh well, I have become a fan of them too.
