I read “Truer to the Game” because I love basketball. The author shares why he feels like women’s basketball is a purer form of what the sport is meant to be. Men’s basketball has become so competitive starting at a very young age for men and boys. There is far less competition in women’s basketball allowing them more focus on the game, and excelling in the sport. There is not an avenue for women to play professional basketball so while they are in college their focus is to play well, make good grades and graduate. Anyone who says that women’s basketball is not exciting has not watched the women’s NCAA Final Four. I’m not saying there should be professional women’s basketball. Im just saying the professional men’s teams could learn a few things from the women.
