PhD student and a lifetime sports enthusiast.

I have tried a large variety of ball sports, and have took training in basketball, football and tennis. Actively participate in a wide variety of sports, on a regular basis, given that the work or injuries don't interfere.

In addition to basketball and football, I play a variety of racket sports such as squash, badminton and table tennis; beach volley, futsal. I also try and follow rugby, american football, handball and track running (sprinters).

comment Is the hand a part of the ball?
Not to dispute the content of the answer but how the rule is reinforced might be slightly different here in Europe, if you happen to hit the hand so much so that it hinder the ball cariers movement, it will be called a foul under FIBA regulation. Playing as a guard in high-school, I have had my fair share of fouls like that :) (PS: I'm aware that the question is tagged [nba] but just stating)

comment How can I improve my shot?
@DannyBland I agree that outside shot/cross/pass has a role to play in the game, and a valuable asset to have for any player. But it's perhaps not the best place to start improving/practising, that's all I am saying :)

@Fillet agreed, I had to put a limit and went with 100 as it's relevant for Zlatan's accomplishment. It would be interesting to check that stat with 50 caps as well, I agree.

comment Which football club started the tradition of announcing player's name 3 times when they score a goal
I disagree with the close flag, it's a valid (trivia) question and rather clear in formulation.

comment What are some good drafting strategies for a recreation basketball league?
I think this is a very tricky question to answer; IMHO it all depends on how much better the best PG is compared to the next best PG, and so on. Bottom line is that you need to find a compromise you are comfortable with
