Most children (and adults actually) will only see NBA or WNBA games on TV. Much less will actually be able to attend LIVE games, especially during Covid. Only a select few will actually be able to sit courtside, as I now have, years later. And nearly “0” will be able to play in any way on an actual court.
From a historical standpoint, I was one of those children, as mentioned above, who could only watch Cavs games on Cleveland TV, tape-delayed, and before cable. In 7th grade, God gave me an idea for the-very-first-hand-drawn-study-hall-created-basketball-game (back in 1977), which exploded in popularity during my Junior High schools' study halls, the school, then the entire school district.
42-years later, the immensely-popular-nameless-basketball-board-game makes a nostalgic comeback as Mini Ball Courts, a VR game for other kiddos worldwide to see, play, learn and have fun. It's back-to-the-future, a new virtual reality game (in ebook format) on Amazon.
