Why do hoops fans believe what they see*Easily the best poem I've ever read that concludes with a wry, wistful reference to Luke Ridnour.
When there’s no sense weaker than sight?
Why do hoops fans take such delight
In crossovers and dunks, those simple dreams,
But hardly ever reward those players
Like Joe Johnson or Shane Battier,
Who have complex and strange games---
Whose skills have layer upon layer?
