@vestal I was almost 6’ tall by the time I was 12 so one day my dad came over with a post digger and installed a basketball hoop by the driveway, measured out the freethrow line in chalk, and said “you’re playing basketball” (I grew up in Indiana, this is normal)

@courtney !!! tall person solidarity, i was constantly asked if i played basketball. did you end up following through?

@vestal I was starting center throughout middle school but in high school practices conflicted with theater rehearsals so I was able to stop without getting any crap for it.

@vestal my cousin (who almost went pro) was enough of a state-wide celebrity in high school basketball circles that I would get asked if we were related by strangers sometimes, years and years later.
