I both confirm and deny your hypothesis. I liked football, and I was an ok-at-best split end/wr, but it just didn't interest me the way that basketball did, and I got kind of bored with it. In football, your position meant that you worked on doing a couple of things well, on one side of the ball. In basketball, you had to do a lot of things well on both sides of the court. Football was stop-start-stop-start. Basketball was constant motion, an always fluid situation -- especially if it was uptempo with pressure defense.
What if you played both ways and were on all of the special teams? Obviously the experience is very different from person to person.

What is the theory you’re trying to develop here?

I played on everything all the way up until varsity where I was 2nd team DE and C and the long snapper. Due to our rotation I played quite a bit.

I played no basketball in HS. It was still and is still #1.

the stop-start-stop-start thing was what I didn't like. that, and the helmet and the pads. constant movement, minimal gear was more my thing.
