17 Secrets Girls Who Play Basketball Won't Tell You

Ball is life.

Posted on

1. You look down on the girls who roll up their basketball shorts.

If they don't go down to your knees, you're not doing it right.


6. You conveniently develop an unexpected cough when the opposing team takes foul shots.

But it's not cool if someone does that to you while you're shooting. Duh.


8. Few things are more satisfying than stealing the ball and getting a fast break.


10. Under your pants, your knees are usually bruised from going for a jump ball.


11. And basketball season is one of the only reasons you shave your legs in the winter.

Or maybe you use your prickly legs as weapons on the court.


15. When each team warms up it's just an excuse to size up the competition.


16. You run through more nail polish than ANYONE else because it's always chipping off your nails.

Seriously, what's the point?

17. You have constant nightmares of your coach yelling "RUN TO THE BASELINE!"

And they're probably why you never risk being late to practice.

But at the end of the day, despite the all the struggles, ball is still life.
