VIDEO: Basketball is (pt. 1)


Basketball is a lot of things to a lot of people. This video gives you a sense of that. I asked members of our Society in our group chat the other night to give me one-word answers to the phrase, Basketball is ___________

You’ll notice the range of descriptions and emotions that came up. The beauty of the game is its complexity, what it teaches you, and how it can be so many different things at different times to different people. When people say ‘ball is life’, there’s a very serious undertone to that. Basketball has the ability to represent every facet of life. That’s what makes it so special.

Look out for more ‘Basketball is’ videos in the future, and if you think of a word to add to the list, feel free to drop it in the comments below. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to keep up with more videos such as Fisch’s Friday Rants, highlight videos, and content from our Hoopers Vault.
