When I was six years old I was Ed Cota and my NERF hoop was the Dean Dome. The first time the dual colored foam ball went through that orange rim I was hooked. I was going to be a basketball lifer. 17 years later a few things have changed; neither I nor Ed Cota can play basketball at a high level anymore (NERF or otherwise) and I’m actually a Duke fan now. Sorry, Ed. Nevertheless, my exuberance for the game is still the same as when I was a six year old throwing imaginary alley-oops to Vince Carter. And now I’d like to think my basketball IQ is a little bit higher.
My goal is to go from NERF hoop to front office. I hope you enjoy the ride with me.
I am Chris Horton and this is Horton Basketball.
