Some people like the free throws, some are excellent at achieving air under a basket.
But we'll wager that many basketball players, professional and weekend-for-funsters alike, have a lot of affection for the art of the dribble. You've stood in a driveway on a hot summer day, bouncing a ball over and over on the concrete? Kind of a wonderful thing. Good for the mind and spirit and body, too.
The first thing we'll say is it is actually on Saturday, July 3, note. The second thing we'll say is bring that A Game. Maybe do a bit of warming up at home, first. Some light ball bouncing. There are several various dribble-based goings-on, like Dribble Tag and a Dribble Like the Pros clinic. We want to see the person who can dribble for the longest amount of time, too.
The dribbling day wraps with a Sparks game at 2 p.m.; they're facing off against the Seattle Storm. A ticket to the game and the dribbling to-dos come to $20 a person; read details and need-to-knows before making for Staples. Registration opens at 9:30 a.m.
