What strikes you more as a basketball player?
Dunk or three-point?
Before you answer, this is a disclaimer; the question has nothing to do with the NBA commercial ad! But, an NBA lover runs this website!
My name is Luke, and I have been playing the game of basketball since I was ten. I can’t forget in a hurry—the day I bought my first basketball! It was a fantastic feeling. As I tightly cuddled my ball with my eyes wide open—waiting for the day to dawn.
Of course, you know what would have transpired in the morning. I got out of bed early and dashed down to the court, where I played all day and missed my breakfast and lunch! That’s a story for another day!
Over time, I played different positions on the court, until just ten years ago, when I took the position of a shooting guard. It truly was something. I always get pumped whenever I play on the court in my shooting guard position—thanks to discovery.
But don’t get it twisted! I am NOT a professional basketball player. I’m merely 5′ 9″ (175cm) tall and possibly 152 pounds (69kg) soaking wet. In summary, I’m just a regular guy who loves the game!
Why Did I Create This Basketball Site?
The answer is simple! To help basketball lovers get first-hand quality basketball information on the go.
As an amateur player, it was normal for me to go online to find some useful tips—I could apply to improve my game. But I wasn’t successful in my quest!
I kept searching for quality content, about basketball, online, but all was to no avail. Most of the information I got, came across as outdated or inaccurate basketball resources, except for a handful which originated from authority basketball websites. And the sites released such content seldom.
If you’ve ever been in such a situation, you understand the frustration. So an idea popped up one day: “why not create a blog that can document most of the basketball stuff you’ve learned along the way?”
Fast forward, some weeks later, I made an effort to take some website building lessons and here we are.
One of the most thought-provoking decisions I had to make when setting up the website was finding the perfect name! I brainstormed a few cool names, asked friends for opinions, and finally, it all came down to dunkorthree.com.
Dunk or Three?
The question is pretty controversial! Some people prefer dunking, while a ton of fans believe a three-point shot is the new slam dunk.
I’m in favor of the latter—primarily because Stephen Curry created a new three-point record in the NBA. I’m a big fan of Curry. I love his deep threes, as well as his dunks—even though he hardly dunks.
So, the answer to the question is relative! After all, it’s best to go for what works for you.
