The Death Of Playground Basketball

Apparently people aren’t playing basketball on playgrounds as much as they used to anymore. DUH!!!!!!! I could have told you that. Playground ball has turned into playing at the YMCA, LA Fitness, or just about any gym they can find. The reason? Playground ball is rough on the body and why play outside with double rims and sometimes harsh conditions when you can be inside on the hardwood. I can’t blame people for moving their basketball needs indoors.

ESPN wrote an article about the lack of playground basketball being played. It’s informative, but doesn’t include information that couldn’t be picked up from the gym by those guys that are no longer on the playground.
