Paul Keim and basketball together are a as good a combination as peanut butter and chocolate, they go hand and hand. Keim grew up in Concord, Indiana playing sports, that is what he did, that is what his friends did. When Keim went to high school, he decided to focus on basketball because that was the sport he enjoyed the most.
