Staying tuned in to the basketball channel

Muggsy Bogues, the 5-foot-3 PG who played for 14 seasons in the NBA, on how basketball kept him focused while growing up in inner-city Baltimore.

"Basketball was always my savior. You know how a VCR always has to be on channel 3 to get a clear picture? Well, I was like a VCR: I had to be on the basketball channel to stay focused. If I switched to another channel, things got blurry."
