Reason

"I saw a basketball try-out sheet at school, there was an American PE teacher, Mr TATE, who was massively into basketball, so I signed up and went to an after-school session wearing football trainers. Even now I tell the kids I coach that when I went to my first practice the whole group laughed at me because I didn’t know what a lay-up was. But by the end of school I was the best player."
