Texas is as culturally and racially diverse as the number of storms and hurricanes that enter the gulf waters in any given year. Germans, Italians, Irish, Hispanics, African Americans, Vietnamese and Jews are well represented and have enhanced the state in many ways. However, this article is not about anyone of these groups, but is about all of them who played high school, college or professional basketball in Texas. This story is about basketball and how it developed in Texas. So, come with me and learn about little but important facts, people, places and records that you will not find anywhere else in one place. This is a tribute by a basketball junkie and a Certified NBA Players Agent. Only by understanding what is written here can the reader fully glean the interest and development of basketball in Texas.
