Some of the old-timers will remember three years ago when, due to the magic of EPT, my wife and I discovered that we were pregnant. Fast forward three years, and we now have a happy and healthy 2-year-old. She's really enjoyed watching basketball with me this year, and now has a small plastic basketball that she enjoys throwing up in the air.
I'm 6'6" and my wife is 6'2". We're both moderately athletic. I played soccer through HS, and my wife played tennis.
So I'd like for my daughter to play basketball as she gets older, if she continues to be interested. Is there anything that I should know? I don't care about actual team issues yet; we're still a few years away. I'm thinking more in terms of good gifts. Children's basketball hoops: good or bad? What sized ball? Basically looking for advice from folks who have had kids play ball.
