About This Quiz

One of the most exciting things about the world of sports is imitating our favorite athletes. Every sports fan probably has at least one fond memory of re-imagining a famous hit or shot in their driveway or back yard as a child. Guys like LeBron James make their craft look so easy that kids can't help but pretend to be pros while on the court.

Of course, as we get older, we realize that it's extremely hard, if not impossible, for most people to become professional athletes at all – let alone achieve a level that will cement them as one of their game's greatest. But being the best ever isn't the only reason to play sports. For some of us, these activities provide an easy way to connect with others, stay healthy, and enjoy some friendly competition.

You may already have decided on a primary sport to play, or perhaps you're looking for a new one. Whatever the case may be, there are probably a few sports you haven't tried that you would be good at and enjoy playing.
