We all need good metaphors for heaven. For me, it’s the NBA.
Watching pro basketball has ALWAYS brought me joy since I was 8 years old.
Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks affirmed this thought in an interview:
“One of the best parts of owning the Mavs is prior to a home game, I’ll get out on the court and shoot before the guys come out to warm up. I’ll just get shots up for an hour and that feeling… That’s where I get my ultimate peace. When the ball is going through the net (hopefully) and I’m raining down threes, the jumpers are falling, and it’s nothing but net, to me, that’s the most calming time ever. That kind of balances me out, getting shots up. And being able to do it on the court of the American Airlines Center is just the ultimate treat and pleasure.”
