Sports Illustrated Q&A With Chris Lofton
From the interview:
LW: A little more about Maysville: Can you describe the basketball court that you liked to shoot on as a kid?
CL: I learned on a few different courts, inside and out, but the main one was where my Mom grew up, in a small town called Flemingsburg [17 miles south of Maysville]. I used to go up there, hang out with the family, and shoot all the time. It was in a place called Hillside Park. A cement court outside.
LW: Do you remember what the rims were like?
CL: The rims were tight there. I think it made me a better shooter. When you play on rims that tight, it's harder -- and you get used to being more accurate.
