It doesn’t exist on a map, but in the mind and spirit. There is a hoop most likely with a backboard and somewhat less frequently with a net, that may or may not be the same height as the two hoops at either end of the gym back at Hickory, a ball, and a mind that sees the limitless possibilities of hard work and self-belief. It is an isolated place that demands much of the mind’s time and more importantly it’s focus. It is not for everyone, and subtely shelters those in need of something they often can’t define. Nothing happens quickly here it is decidedly evolutionary, not revolutionary. It is not without irony that the manifestation of this lonely work can silence the masses or send them into delirium. In that sense it is transferable from the one who works and believes to the rest.
