Ireland's most popular sport and raises the spirits of your heart when you
see grown men battling it out in the rain on a Friday night!

Obviously, I'm going for Dublin althogh they've fallen short for the last two
years in the semi-finals.

They're joint top of their league currnetly and the Championship is set to
get under way in a matter of weeks.

So am, I the only, G.A.A. fan here??

Highlights all the skills!

This was an All-Ireland semi-final. I was at it and cried at the final whistle.....:(
A lot say that this was one of the best games for a long time


Oh, and this is the place to be when Dublin play.......Hill16!

I play around my house a lot as I got a basketball net recently.

I watch loads of youtube videos of Jordan, Bryant and Magic, and of course the Slam Dunk Contests :)

Very varied views on youtube, some say Jordan is the best ever along with Magic while others don't rate Jordan in that league at all.

does this game have any rules lmao it looks like a couple of bored kids mixed rugby and football.
Funny enough mate, there are rules!

And, they are probably the most confusing rules any sport has!

Easy if you play it or watch it, but it's completly new to people who have never
seen it!

A mate who were a basketball player told me just last year or so the US born kids who dream of a basketball career all wants to be on a national tv show (to get big deals when they sign after being drafted) where they show the top 10 plays which all is slams or half court shot beating the buzzer. We all know basketball is like football a team event and most of the times the best team win but not always the best players. Coaches dont like the players go one-on-one-plays all the time and that has open the doors for European players as well as South Americans and Asian players since they still know how to shoot from a distance as well as doing all what the Americans can do.

Best basketball player. I was brought up with all the players from the Dream Team. So for me the best players are one of those who came to Barcelona and outclassed the rest of the world. What can you say when the opponents were taking snapshots of you during the game!!? And what a team they were. Jordan, Pippen, Larry Bird, Clyde Drexler, John Stockton, Erwin Magic Johnson, Karl Malone, Pat Ewing, Admiral Robinson, Bad guy Charles Barkley and a few more. They brought a tourist with them, the collage guy Christian Laettner. Uh...

Drazen Petrovic of Croatia was really the only one giving the Dream Team a hard time. A Euro Legend who sadly died in a car crash in Germany in 1993. Since his days Divac. Kukoc, Radja, Sabonis and Marciulionis are a few of the top Euro players who made a mark in the NBA.
Now we got names like Tony Parker, Pau Gasol, AK 47 aka Anderi Kirilenko to name a few of the top names.

Note: Dublin have the largest following and the most ****y fans/players but they're useless :p

My county, Mayo, are far better and have a better history.

Kerry are the greatest team ever and dominate the sport at present.

I went to see the Harlem Globetrotters when they came to Manchester last year but I don't really follow basketball.
