Does basketball lingo sound like Greek to you? Ever had the desire to toss out NBA 2K12 (or any of its previous incarnations) when your boyfriend, husband, or brother isn’t looking? Do you go blank when your guy friends ask you whether or not you think LeBron will ever win a championship?

Don’t worry. You’re not alone. Many an argument has been fought (and lost) over the obsession men call basketball.

And yet the problem is really just a lack of understanding: many women shun the sport because they don’t think it’s interesting, and they don’t find the sport interesting because they shun it. But those who do make the effort to learn about basketball often find that it can be exciting and that it’s more fun to share this interest than fight about it with the men in their lives.

Scroll through the gallery below to learn more about basketball!
