Good day my friends! My name is Elias Felix Jr and Basketball is my Passion!
Well, it is fair to say that basketball is one of my passions. I also love Martial Arts, Classical Guitar, Chess, Soccer, Reading and Learning new things every day. I strongly believe that Passion is a key ingredient to be successful in anything you choose to do.
I was born in 1976 in Tucson, Arizona; 34 years later, this blog was born. I really enjoy watching NBA games and playing basketball as much as possible, trying to stay fit. I have lived in the states of Arizona, California and Utah in the US and Baja California, Chihuahua and Sonora in Mexico.
I am a Civil Engineer but also coach kids in the fundamentals of basketball, motivating them to achieve their optimal physical conditioning. Since I was a kid, I have been involved with sports in one way or another. I have practiced Baseball, Martial Arts, Soccer, Swimming, Gymnastics, Running, Racketball, but most of all, Basketball at the college level. All of them provided me with invaluable lessons and all of them required discipline, passion and the best mental and physical condition to succeed.
During the 1990´s I enjoyed the championship seasons of the Chicago Bulls. Watching Michael Jordan play motivated me to pick up the basketball and play 3 on 3 games at the neighborhood park. It all started then, I fell in love with the game and have not stopped playing, making new friends, and learning from it ever since. I am fortunate to be a witness of the greatness of his airness!
