Indulge in reminiscence haha
Growing up in the 90's, and living in a family who loved the Chicago Trifecta - MJ was the man that led me to watch the NBA night in and night out. Jordan wasn't the only one though, I'll never forget those names I grew up with - Ewing, Olajuwan, Richmond to name just a few
Seriously, though, just watching from a young age since 8 and loving shaq. then becoming a smarter fan and finally realized Shaq couldn't lift Pluto with one hand. and i played a lot and i love the sound of the dribble on the floor. I fell in love with the game, started learning about it, and i tried to talk about ball with people in the real world, which was no use. Then i found ISH finally.
Since this isn't the NBA forum, I'm assuming you are talking about the National Band Association.
What turned me onto the NBA is my uncle; he always played instruments while I was a kid and he taught me how to play the Cello. I have been playing it ever since and I'm glad to tell you guys the NBA has nominated me for the Most Improved Musician.
