Every summer at the end of June, downtown Spokane is engulfed by basketball. Often bringing players and teams from across the United States, Spokane’s Hoopfest hosts the world’s largest outdoor 3 on 3 basketball tournament. Those who have experienced this one of a kind event will surely be able to relate to these stereotypes.

  1. The Dad “Coach”

Every bracket has that dad coach who is screaming obnoxiously at either his son or the court monitor. Often times the dad is more passionate about winning than the child.

3) The Manchild

There is always a couple dudes that either hit puberty at an incredibly early age or just don’t know how old they are. Often have more hair on their face than other kids have in their armpits, and opposing mothers always demand a birth certificate.
