Basketball is life?

I've been playing basketball for the past 13 years. Aside from a few months stretch here and there, I don't think I've ever really taken a break from it. In fact, the more I play, the more I see how it resembles life and the world around us. The depth in a game of basketball is limitless. The details are subtle.

Over the years, my skills and perception of basketball has changed radically. One major development is the change from 'Me' to 'We'. I like to think of it as smart basketball because I don't believe in consistent heroic efforts anymore. It's about winning and not scoring. Isn't that what leaders are supposed to believe in too?

In light of my Chinese classmates, I've been playing more basketball lately. It's a great way to blow off steam and escape. When I'm on the court my attention is undivided, it's the feeling of being consumed.

Dammit, Linkin Park bailed on Beijing last weekend.

Haha,Life is like a box of chocolates:you never know what you’re gonna get,你永远不知道盒里乾坤。

So happy in the pic of your childhood...
As long as you smile,you are so charming,As a large blooming lavender像一大片盛开的熏衣草...
