communication on the court

Why is it so fun when yr playing basketball and yr man goes to screen another player on yr team, and you call out, “screen on yr left” and yr teammate recognizes it and when the man he is guarding tries to use the screen and you say, “I got man” and switch men and follow a new guy around the court for awhile? Why do I get such a thrill out of it when that switch works seamlessly? I think it is even more fun than a basket, rebound or assist. Just good smart basketball. Even better when said screen is set up so the other team can run a back door and you say all the right things and switch to the cutter and the play is foiled. Great stuff, but I sprained my finger.

When the mind and body are in unison, each instance of unison within the scope of those moments, carries the flawlessness of our own grace and integrity.
