Number 33, Larry Bird, one of my favorite Hall of Fame basketball player. Awesome shooter and all round player. A real competitor. I was never there to watch his games live but the you tube videos were enough to make me respect the man.

I love basketball, and one thing that I love the most in basketball is shooting the basketball from range. I feel like there is nothing more beautiful than controlling the laws of physics to throw a ball into the air to see it fall gracefully into the hoop with a congratulatory sound effect, "Splash!"
