If we lived as if joy was already present and not contingent on basketball championships then the weird thing is the championship, »the ring« will come. The trophy is yours if you learn to have fun in the daily grind. The one catch is: you can’t trick yourself and pretend to believe. You actually have to.

— Shane Anderson

A day full of basketball: creative nonfiction - an essay on Dirk Nowitzki, a performance and a discussion about politics on the court. Plus: music and a whole bunch of slam dunks! Come on by and play along!
