117/365 Billy Baller

Today I was contacted by a major magazine to cover a story about famous local basketball legend, Billy Baller. Billy Baller is known for his hustling street game and his ability to coach the youth with his very unique and original methods which include shooting bowling balls to develop strength, running hills until they puke and crossing major highways dribbling a ball while blindfolded to help develop awareness on the court. Turns out the the magazine has uncovered an amazing family story by discovering that he and Track Star Tommy were identical twins separated at birth.
