The Underlying Issue with NBA Fans' Basketball Knowledge
During the postgame press conference of a Friday night matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers on January 9, 2021, Warriors forward Draymond Green was asked this question, “Do you wish defense was seen, like, in a sexier way? That like, being in good position, or staying vertical...that’s just as good as, potentially, hitting a splashy 3, but it’s the 3 that ends up on the highlight reel?”
The Emotional Attachment to Sports
Roller coasters are one of the easiest metaphors to describe anything that can rapidly change at a blink of an eye. Life, love, and in this case, sports, are all ideas that are compared to those man-made thrill rides we see at amusement parks. They all have the same premise: taking you on a small, minute long journey that can conjure up all kinds of emotions. You can start out extremely nervous or excited, waiting for your spot in line to finally get to the front. Sooner or later, you're on the actual ride screaming with enjoyment, or more often than not, with fear and anxiety. No matter how you look at roller coasters, they will always spark up some kind of emotion after going through them. "Let's do it again!" or "I'm never riding that again!" are probably two different statements you have heard someone said about them.
