6. You have countless inside jokes from practices that still make you laugh all these years later.

7. Sometimes you find yourself missing those long trips on the cheese wagon to away games.

11. On that note, you're probably pretty confident you could beat just about anyone in a fight after all the fighting practice your basketball career gave you.

12. You remember the days of having to wear the "banana" jerseys, or scrimmage jerseys, as an underclassmen.

13. And you also remember the glory days of making the underclassmen wear the practice jerseys when you finally gained seniority.

17. You and your teammates developed a chemistry where you basically knew where everyone was on the court, even with your eyes closed.

18. If you're a girl, you still remember all the aggressive yelling of the fourth quarter. (Who are we kidding, basically every second of the game.)

19. If you've ever gotten a CT done from a basketball-inflicted head injury right before heading out to the next away game. Just me? Okay.

20. If you ever had to sit a quarter out because your nose was bleeding profusely.

21. If you remember the agonizing feeling of fouling out and having to sit the bench and watch helplessly.

22. You remember the solidarity of the locker room right before a rivalry or championship game.

23. You dreaded car rides back with your parents after a loss. Yeah...everything looks easy when you're watching from the stands, Mom and Dad.

24. Your teammates eventually became your best friends. You did spent every second together at practice and at games. The friendship was destined.

For all the the lessons and memories that we will cherish forever, thank you high school basketball.
