Write up of Piece: Basketball is as much about the fan experience as it is about the game itself. Dan Handskillz focuses on four essential fan experiences that are beloved but get little exposure: watching your team win from a remote location, in the company of other die-hard fans; listening to your school’s pep band fire up the crowd; seeing your team on the court from the upper stands; and cheering on the returning championship team when their bus finally arrives home.
