Growing up in a family with 2 older cousins and an older brother that all played basketball. I followed their steps, started playing basketball since elementary school, and if you play basketball, you watch NBA, the league of the best.
I used to play soccer until I was 10 years old and I never really liked it so when Basketball started gaining popularity in my province and especially in my town my mother signed me up for the league. My friends dad was coaching our team and we were named The Raptors. I watched a couple of games on tv to know what team we were representing and got a glimpse of Carters early years sick dunks. I continued following the season on tv and fell in love with the franchise and the league. We chose the same team name for the following years. Go Raptors!
It was early 1994. I needed to get something to keep me occupied at night. I already had Step by Step and Family Matters on Friday nights, but that was only one day a week. Basketball gave me something to watch at least three nights a week.
