If I were a... Basketballer

What would I wear?

  • They're called shorts, but they're more like very short trousers.
  • Baggy basketball vests with a t-shirt underneath for basketball practice.
  • For when I'm not playing basketball (which is hardly ever) jeans and a t-shirt.
  • I shop at places like Footlocker, TK-Max and JD Sports.

What about music?

  • I listen to a lot of Hip-Hop and R'n'B… American influenced.
  • Think Fabulous, Usher, 50 Cent, Jules Santana etc.
  • I listen to whatever pumps me up for a game.
  • I get my music from my friends and downloading from the net.

What do I do?

  • I play basketball and lots of it!
  • I hang out with my mates, listen to music and chill out by playing the Playstation and Xbox.
  • The best way to relax your mind is with a hectic game of basketball.

What do I think?

  • Being a Basketballer is not just about the sport, it's about the music, friends and life that goes with it.
  • Playing basketball is about having fun with your friends and forgetting about any problems off the court.
  • There's no better feeling than scoring a three pointer in the last second to win a game.
