By the Numbers: August 22, 2007

Most kids cannot wait to grow up, while most adults dream of returning to their youth. However a wise old saying says it is not the number of years in your life that counts but the life in your years. Basketball players use numbers to measure life’s value. In the life of a basketball player the total points they score or the amount of games they win are meaningful because it affects the number of championship they have won or can win.
