Site BG

hey guys I am making a basketball site and this is the BG for the intro page and i was wondering the following questions:

1.) does it look good?
2.) how can i make it better?
3.) how can i make so that when people with 1024*768 screen resolution look at it doesn’t repeat the background in the bottom?
4.) any other stuff that i need to know.



PS. here is the link
