Keeping Your Memories Alive With A Basketball Jersey

By: Colin Pike

Basketball is a sport in which two teams of five players each try to score points on one another by tossing a ball through a their opponents basket (or hoop) under organized rulings.

Over time, basketball has developed to involve common techniques of shooting, passing and dribbling, as well as players positions, and offensive and defensive strategies. Basketball is also a very popular spectator sport.

The more common fans now a days support their favorite team by frequently coming out to watch live games, buy player and team merchandise; moreso wear their favorite player and team jersey.

What do you do for your favorite basketball team? How can you express your loyalty and support for the team that has made so much for you? It does not matter if it wins or not, you just have to be there for them every time. Wearing a basketball jersey can express those feelings. Sometimes, people wear them for years, no matter what if their team won this year or not. It gives them a sense of camaraderie when they meet people who also wear a basketball jersey.

Lets take as example The Pistons from Detroit. If you were not had one, you were considered un-cool. The basketball jersey has become in Detroit not only the sign of all Pistons fans, but symbol of Detroit. Even if the media sometimes trashes this town, it is a city that has been through many hard times, but it always managed to get over. We show that way a sense of civic pride, we cannot abandon it, as we cannot abandon our team.

A basketball jersey may also signify the beginning of your high school adventures. We all know how hard people try to make it into the basketball team or the football team. They value so much their first jersey because it is kind of the beginning of their manhood. It showed how good you were, how skilled, disciplined and dedicated to the sport you were and all the other people admired you.

We all keep those basketball jerseys even if we are now grown up men; it has a sentimental value and it can bring back wonderful memories since you were young.

Much like card collectors, some people even collect team jerseys with hopes of long term value rewards. The older, more popular and more "mint" your jersey is, the better odds of it being worth more in the long run.
