A very nice client invited me to play pickup basketball with a group of friends at Cameron Indoor Stadium, the home of the Duke Blue Devils! He was nice enough to include my son Jackson. What a great night! I ate too much Thai dinner before playing and I was sorry I did that because it slowed me down a little but my friend threw me some great passes and we had a nice winning streak. Jackson hit his first two shots, surprising the more “mature” players and making his dad smile.
I’ve only been in Cameron Indoor Stadium once before, about ten years ago when my friend Tim Wicker invited me to the McDonald’s All American game. I really liked how it felt old and small. Below Jackson hits a “3”, which is a specialty of Duke players.
Completely unexpected, but we got a tour of the practice facilities and the locker room! The players were in another city playing in the NCAA tournament at the time. We saw one inactive player shooting baskets on the practice court alone at 10pm. That’s why Duke wins.
