"But a basketball shot, that's even more serious. Not pure joy, there is more intent, a conscious collapsing of hoop, ball, and distance, all mediated by feeling. The feeling of the ball rotating off the fingertips like a lingering touch, the uncorking spring in legs and feet that fuel the ball's rainbow arc, the satisfying sound of the ball cutting through the net. Sensual beauty disguised as competition." --Waking, by Matthew Sanford
