intensity . . . emotion

Arthur Ashe observed:  “You are never really playing an opponent. You are playing yourself, your own highest standards, and when you reach your limits, that is real joy.”  In the faces of the competitors you can see this — the intensity and the emotion as they push to reach their limits.  High school, college, pro — the level of competition does not matter.  The look is there.  Chase that look in the shot and just maybe you are chasing the essence of what is really going on in the game and why they play . . . and why we shoot.  Right?
