This past week, during a clinic visit for a boy I see, I got to meet his 13 year-old sister, who accompanied him and his parents to the hospital.
During the visit I discovered that the father of this family still plays basketball 3 times a week and, when I asked if his sister played, she told me that basketball was "our thing".
He takes her to games and they spend time talking and being with each other.
A nice for both of them to share their enjoyment of the game and each other.
So here's to the fathers that pass the ball (and their love for the game) to their daughters.
Just another way that basketball brings people together.
