Basketball Junkie
Shayne Combs, SVCsportszone.com
Just like Jeff Foxworthy once helped us determine our redneck status,
I am here to help all SVC fans determine if you are possibly a basketball junkie.
I have to admit that I am guilty - to some extent - of all the following:

If you find yourself turning from the Monday night football game
to watch the WNBA playoffs…you might be a basketball junkie.

If you take the not so shortcut through the gym on the way to lunch hoping
that there is a ball on the floor so you can get up a shot…you might be
a basketball junkie.

If you ask coaches for game film to watch just to scratch the itch of not coaching…
you might be a basketball junkie.

If you see a group of seventh grade boys acting somewhat childish on the way to lunch
trying to cheat for a better spot in line and it sparks an idea for a great new box-out drill…
you might be a basketball junkie.

After seeing the before mentioned scene of the boys in the lunch line, if you hurry to
your computer to add the idea for the box out drill to your ongoing basketball journal…
you might be a basketball junkie.

If you refer to football weeks in reverse order in terms of a countdown to basketball
season…you might be a basketball junkie.

If you run, do ball handling drills, and shoot free throws at 6:00 AM because you
are afraid that if you don't someone else in the league possibly is…you might be a
basketball junkie.

If you learned (and believed) at basketball camp when you were young that it was best to
count made free throws instead of sheep when trying to fall asleep at night…you might
be a basketball junkie.

If you are watching all-access training camp of the New Orleans Hornets on NBA TV
at 3 AM…you might be a basketball junkie.

If you constantly use the task of throwing something away as a chance to work on your
“go-to� move or your fade away jumper…you might be a basketball junkie.

If you recently on a podcast show accidentally referred to the quarterback
position as the point guard…you might be a basketball junkie.


…and perhaps the most telling…


If your calendar says March all year long to remind you that if it is not March
the Madness is always less than a year away…you might be a basketball junkie.
