Re: Indoor vs. Outdoor
I like them both. As a Michigan native and resident, outdoor basketball means summer weather and warm temperatures. Often the gym is synonymous with cold weather, dark nights, and stiff muscles. On the other hand, I like the reliability of a gym and the (sometimes) sticky floors.
Outdoor courts offer more of the unknown, and lots of times it works out. A small secret I've always had: just once in my life have I come across an outdoor basketball court featuring two baskets standing over a regulation ten feet off the ground. Every other set I've played on is either exactly ten feet, or an inch or two low and for a guy who could use every single inch when dunking, it can make a world of difference in terms of dunk frequency.
So, I love the outdoor courts for the hot, loose muscles, and summer element combined with the favorable high-rising characteristics. Further, I've gone in the opposite direction of many and believe the double rims have actually improved my shot. I'm a-ok with them.
