I see a game that could be enjoyed outside. It could be played outside in the blistering heat, or inside on a cold day. But at this particular moment it is being enjoyed on a cold day indoors. It is like a game of chess except the pieces or people have free range of motion. Also to some, especially a coach, it can be poetry in motion. There can only be ten pieces on the floor at once and that means five to a coach. The five pieces act as one to win the game. But the object of the game is different than that of chess. The object of the game is to score the most points in the time allowed. I have seen and been apart of these basketball games but today I am just a spectator.
