Basketball is for Big Men & Polar Bears

My last post mentioned teams named Giants in football, baseball and hockey BUT I wonder why is there no professional basketball team named Giants? Seems like a natural to me. The only NBA team name that starts with a G are the Grizzlies in Memphis and the only city is Golden State, which is actually Oakland.


Today's local newspaper quote from coach Wooden is surrounded by my key chain. I love Thursdays because I play basketball in my men's rec league!

Now watch this video of a polar bear dribbling:)

This brings back memories of the Calgary Zoo for me...and when the Grizzlies played pro basketball in Vancouver. The polar bear actually resembles Bryant "Big Country" Reeves:)
