Basketball never stops…..it only rotates
I spend my down time daydreaming
of snagging tough rebounds
then immediately throwing full court outlet passes
that lead to fast break points.
I visualize touch passes
to baseline cutters for easy buckets.
No look bounce passes hit my teammates in stride–
right into the hand that’s closest to the basket.
Dump off passes thrown over my shoulder
into the pal of someone curling from
the paint to the rim
and over the top lobs to big men
skillfully sealing off their defender.
I guess you could say that I miss hoopin’.
