The Darkness (and light) of Japanese Junior Basketball

http://gty.im/460993944 I love basketball. And I’m proud to say that this love of Naismith’s game has been passed onto my son. He’s currently 8, and participates in the Japanese mini-version of the game, “mini-basket” (バスケ – “baske” – the Japanese abbreviated word for ‘basketball’). It’s a well-run sport, and children participate in clubs based on […]
