What do you love about your sport? The International wheelchair basketball community. All over the world people are welcoming new people into the sport from all different backgrounds. I have played with and against some of the greatest people in the world and then had them to my house for Christmas and been to their houses for Thanksgiving dinner. I think the community is so tight-knit because the community is small compared to a lot of sports.
If you could change something about your sport, what would it be? The media exposure we get. I think that if more people had access to wheelchair basketball it would be a lot more popular but as it stands there is not enough exposure for us.
