These athletes really are artists. DeMar DeRozan could be (a 6'7, black) Mikhail Baryshnikov gliding through the air, and Javale McGee has this graceful coordination and power like Savion Glover's.
Stevie Wonder sat court side for the All Star game (you might ask why and I'll answer). He says he likes to have his feet on the court so he can feel the rhythm of the ball bouncing, the players running and stopping. The notion can sound trite, Tap even, but it's true. There's a rise and fall to every move, possession, game, and season.
Take a look at these guys.
