    Smile Does "Basketball is the sport I most often play" sound right?

    Hi,
    Would the sentence "Basketball is the sport I most often play" seem awkward? If yes, what would you recommend to say?
    I have tried Googling several ways of expressing this concept, but none of them appeared to be the right ones.

    Or Basketball is the sport I play most often.

    Thank you for more information!
    And what about "Basketball is the sport I play most"? Or should I add "the" before "most"?

    Either 'most' or 'the most' will do.
    Don't forget "Basketball is my favourite sport" - which doesn't mean exactly the same, of course.
