To go along with the other thread about actually playing basketball, what player(s) did you find yourself emulating?

Who do people say you play like? Who do you think you play like?

When i was younger and played people called me Little Barkley.

My coach used me as PF even if i was a head shorter than other teams pf, but i was Strong Built so i rebounded and scored neverthless.

Unfortunately i stopped growing and my rivas didnt, so when they where TWO heads higer than me it was the end.

Interestingly enough, I've had all sorts off names thrown at me at the parks. Sasha, Rodman, Raja...nothing better then hearing someone call you "Kobe!" though. To me.

I'm 6'0 170. Realistically though I consider myself to play like J Kidd.

Im 5"11, but I think my game is more of a blend of players than 1.

See, I ma only be 6 " but I play Big and love to post up. I would say my game most is represented by JO earlier talent with a combo of Al Jefersons Fakes.

Though I post up, I do get stuck on the perimiter alot. I do not have great ball handling skills but I can get by a player with Either hand, I have some good passing abilites too, mainly do to my insticts as to where other players are and Where they should go for cuts and other moves I love to get inside and Dish to teamates for Layups, In all honesty I would rather set someone up then score myself

I also seem to have good insticts about where to be on the court. I always seem to be in the right place to get an easy bucket.

My bigest weekness seems to be that I dont have a great jump shot or agresiveness to score that I should.

Derek Fisher. Not because of style or anything but I once hit a shot with .9 seconds left in the game to tie it (albeit in middle school) and it was the year after Fisher's shot so people started calling me Fisher.

I am a tenacious little guy- 5'9", 165. I have virtually no offensive game, but I play hard all game- loose balls, hard fouls, hard screens and take charges. I stay in front of my guy on D- busy hands, quick feet. Even though I am small, I like to play in the paint- I have a nose for rebounds and my scrappy mentality lets me hold off bigger guys.

So with that said, I would call myself a mixture of guys- Bruce Bowen's D (including the dirtier stuff), somewhat of a Matt Harpring...

I've been called Dirk a few times. I'm nowhere near as tall though. I'm 5'11 but I have an excellent shot and an extremely quick release. I work really well off screens but also have decent handles and strong hands to finish inside with contact. If I were to compare my game to anyone I'd probably say Ben Gordon. I think I try to attack the basket a bit more than BG though and try to work inside out rather than the other way around.

Shawn Marion. I'm not really good at creating my own shot so I get most of my points either in transition or from offensive rebounds.

ARMIN12NBA
02-03-2009, 03:15 AM
When I was younger, my coaches would compare me or say I was a cross between Wilt and Magic. The older I grew, I didn't score and dominate (Wilt) as much or have the versatility to play any position (Magic) anymore. I became more of a slightly above average scorer, but a dominant rebounder. This was in league play. When I play pick-up games, I have never lost and still dominate. :p

I'm 6'5 and bit of a tweener between sf/pf.

Probably something like Beasley, or Aldridge in his rookie year.
I'm kinda incosistent :S score 25 one night, and 6 the other...
And my defence sucks, somehow even the worst player on the other team finds a way to score on me. I'm too slow for most guards to defend, and too little strenght for most centers. On offence I mostly have an advantage, I can either post up smaller players, or draw bigger guys outside cause I do shoot the 3.

sucks beeing a tweener on defence lol.

I'm not as tall but I play like Trevor Ariza. Good on-ball defense, jumping ability, slasher, don't tend to shoot outside jumpers + 3s, skying for unexpected rebounds (my favourite). The people I play against varies from about 5'10 up to about 6'11

pippsux
02-03-2009, 03:36 PM
I am the guy who always wants to defend the pretty boys, the guys who come to a pick up game with their girlfriend watching or my fav, the talkers. So I will say I am like Gary Payton/ Karl Malone, and Hakeem on the offensive side.


I remember a game when a guy I was guarding told me he was going to beat me like he beat his kids, Oh men,... my eyes turned red like I just drank two cans of red bull. I "D" his a&* up! Mind you I am 6ft tall 180lbs playing basketball as a fourth sport, while he was at least 6'3 maybe 200lbs, basketball as a first sport. But back to my story.....

He made 1 shot the rest of the night from the perimeter. Then I called for the ball in the post and dropped a dream shake on him. He got pissed and tried to post me middle, I took my left arm right across middle a la Karl Malone, but unfortunately I caught part of his mouth and the ball. Blood poured and he was pissed. He thought I did it intentionally. i told him I didn't. He was mad, but after he had cleaned up and calmed down we shook hands afterwards.

Hasn't played me since.

pippsux
02-03-2009, 03:46 PM
I got 1 more......

It was at a pick up game, nobody knew each other. We were all stretching and warming up, then this guy comes in with his shirt and tie looking like he just came from a photo shoot from GQ. I smiled and prayed we were not on the same team. Teams were picked and he warmed up very well, to the point he was the 1st one picked. Nobody on my team wanted to guard him, so I said " I got him". We shook hands and the game started. He was about 6'1 175lbs very good handle. He tried everything, when he shot, I contested and he missed. When he tried to blow past me, I forced him to the strong side and when he stopped, blocked his shot. I can honestly say that was the best defence I ever played....I shut him completely down, missed every shot. Our team won, since "Mr Ball stopper" was so into beating me one on one he forgot to pass the ball. That was the only game he played. He didn't even put on his silky threads as he left with his tail between his legs.

I went home and bragged to my girlfriend back then. It was a good day. I was Bruce Bowen 5 years ago.

i play like ben wallace and scola.

my defense is good i get about 10-15 rebounds a game, which would include 3 offensive rebounds a game, i avarge a least 2 blocks a game, and oh btw i am undersized.

on offense i play like luis scola i can hit shots inside the 3, but when i step out then i cant hit it, i have a nice post game and finish verywell.

i can always drive too rim and i can jump very high, i can be expolsive. i hit my free throughs.

im nothing special but i own my league along with JoeJohnson2 but our leagues **** :)

Marcus Camby - we both attended the same University

my advantages (in my prime):

better passer (esp outlet passes)

bit more outside range

I could run the floor better - my engine reved very high

Disadvantages:

due to Marfan's Syndrome I was injured more then he was.

he's 2.5 inches taller then me - which is maybe the difference from being a D2 player (I was) and a pro (or at least D1).

he has better side to side mobility

he can react at current NBA game speed and I know I couldn't, not without a lot more playing time when I was younger against tougher competition then I faced. Still it's as close as I can think of.

02-04-2009, 01:40 PM
Alright, lets all keep this realilistic. I play like Salim Stoudamire. Size wise I am about 5'10" and weigh in at about 160. Salim is 5'11" and goes about 170. I can shoot the three all day long and i like to drive. No mid rage jumpers for me. The one thing that seperates me and Salim is defensive motivation. I love to play defense and take great pride in it. And both of us arent in the NBA. I am also a righty and Stoudamire is a lefty, but what can you do.

02-04-2009, 07:54 PM
People tell me that I play like a mixture of Luke Walton & Tayshon. I am a pass first player that likes to get his teammates going. I relish an assist more than my own bucket. I am 6'3 and play the 3-4 position in the rec. league juthat I play in. My mpshot is .....not the greatest to say the least and my handles are suspect as well, but I am an EXCELLENT defender of anyone from the 1-4 and sometimes the 5 depending on the size difference. I grab mad boards and am usually the first to hustle for a loose ball or get back on D and reject the dumbass who thinks he has an uncontested layup!! ;)

I dont shoot 3's unless its absolutely necessary, but i find it much more satisfying driving and getting easy buckets (maybe i watched too many Iverson clips growing up) I love the midrange, Im only 5'8" but played varsity PG for 2 years in High School (off the bench of course haha).

I love pumpfaking and getting easy baskets by aggressive big who want nothing more to block the little asian guy. it always works man. a good pumpfake always works.

my whole basketball career has been playing off of guys underestimating me because of my height and race but it worked out in the end.

In my early days people on streetball-court called me Anderon because of Nick Anderson (Orlando Magic). We had similar style of throwing 3-pointers. People said, not me. I played mostly SG until coaches wanted me to play PG, because of very good ball-handling and passing skills ... I became more a defense and playmaking guy than a go-to player. Shooting was and is still my thing. Mid-range. far mid-range or 3's were always my way to make points. On free-throw line I hit 'em pretty good, too ... My weakness I think was always that I'm a pass first guy and type of PG. The coaches never appreciated that. I think they wanted me always more selfish and with more drive to the basket (not that I can't do layups) ... lots of coaches of non-professional teams I think, look way too much on ppg then on other abilities ...

Sean McG
04-12-2009, 12:40 PM
I honestly have no idea who my doppleganger is.. I'd say maybe Lamar Odom or Andrei Kirilenko?

I play power forward on my school team, and I'm probably like 6'0, which would be undersized considering the starting 2 bigs on my team are around 6'6 and 6'3. But I have the skill set of a 1-3. I'm a point forward basically, pretty average handles, shooting, and above average defense but I'm a great passer and good at attacking the rim. I should probably play 3.

i wanna say like a 5'11 lamar odom.
i can drive easily but i love shooting j's instead
i can play d, but only when i feel like it and i enjoy being the facilitator.

Somehow this reminds me of myself :D
The only difference is that I'm 6'3^^

Depends on who I'm playing with.

When I'm playing with guys that are at my level or better than me, I play like Rondo and look to mostly pass first and set up other guys and play good defense.

When I'm playing with scrubs I usually go Kobe status on their ***** and cross people up and jack up shots at will.

They used to call me pippen in High School, now I'm more than a Kobe type, fade aways & attack the basket, and I always want to defend the best guy in the other team (at my size)...

I watched Nash training vids and tried to emulate his style of play, but seem to play more like tony parker.

Well I grab alot of rebounds but probably fouled on most of them, can't hit a shot from more than 4 feet. Jokiam Noah?

I like your answer. I do a lot of the same.

I'm somewhat of a Paul Pierce/D-Wade combo. I like to shoot the midrange off the dribble and post up smaller guys. I'm close to 6'3" and pretty mobile so I like to camp out at the 3 and shoot until they get in my face then I like to pass. I don't dunk so I like to drive and kick in stead of trying to throw up circus layups.

Against good players I shoot a lot of really deep 3s. Also I always go for blocks on D but can, from time to time lock down. Usually though, I am a matador who tries to block shots from behind.

A cross between Cheryl Miller and Candace Parker. I am a finesse player but can also dunk on anybody. I can also work them heels and a dress.

I don't really know who I play like. I don't necessarily emulate myself after one person, I do certain things different from a specific player, but I do try to emulate those things after specific players......I'll just describe my playing style and maybe someone can tell me who it sounds like I play like

I'm 5'11"....190lbs right handed

Offense

First and foremost I like the 3 ball(love standing in the corners and spreading the floor...I'm good at this).

I'm a cerebral player, so I'm always setting backscreens and I also like to run off the ball to get open at the elbow.

When I drive the ball I usually like to pull up for about a 10-15 ft J

With my back to the basket I like to fake middle(from the left side of the court...if you're looking at the basket) and spin baseline for a fadeway

Defense

I have quick hands, and I'm always looking to steal the ball whenever someone decides to try and drive the ball to the basket

I don't have great hops, so I don't really block my man, but I'm a decent weakside defender so I catch people by surprise that way

I play with reckless abandon, so if there's a loose ball, I'm diving for it
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If I had to say I play like anyone, I would say it's a mixture of Dirk, JJ Redick, and Royal Ivey lol

Well, there it is, if anyone has any idea who it is I play like....please share

In junior high, I'd say Bargnani. Since grade 8, I have grown about 1 inch to bring me to 6'2, so my big man comparisons quickly went away. In high school I say I was more like Robert Horry or Walter McCarty. Now, (in my second year at university) I am a much more complete player. More like a Ray Allen or a Michael Finley. But then again, this is me comparing myself to pick up games. If I were to play for my university team (which I am hoping to be doing next year) I'd be more like Jason Kapono or Dell Curry.

I'm 6'3", a perfectionist 3 point shooter, streaky in games. I would say Kyle Korver, got the same look too, white with the same sorta hair

I play like Chris "Birdman" Andersen. I make plays, don't get enough credit, and I like to party :D

Then again, I'm much shorter, so I'll say Greg Buckner.

I'm 5"10 245 pounds but muscalur I like to shoot the 3 but never the mid-range. I actually always guard the big guy. I sometimes guard people that are 6"4. Sometimes I will punish people down low and get a lot of rebounds despite my size. I hit threes but I'm not consistent I'm a streaky shooter once I get it going I can't be stopped. I rely on my defense more then my offense. I can also handle the ball and I like to distribute. So I'm like raja bell without flopping and boris diaw mixed. Its like raja and diaw had a baby and made me.

People say I'm like Trevor Ariza because I'm a SF, fast, slasher, dont shoot outside shots much, pretty athletic, good jump, work hard on defense. When I watch games back I see myself using some of Kobe's moves without really realising it as I'm doing it - must be because I watch so much Lakers. I wish I was taller because I'd like to be a Lamar Odom kind of player.

holy crap dude...you're built like a bowling ball I'm not no body builder. I'm hispanic and some people think that I look like a semoine from hawaii.. I play basketball,football, sometimes baseball, and boxing. I love football the most out of playing the sport, but I love watching the NBA the most.

Style wise it's tough to say. I don't know too many guys who can use their left or right equally good (dribbling and shooting). Stat wise I'd say Stockton or Nash. I always looked to pass first but shot a very high percentage.

I'm somewhat of a cross between Brian Cardinal and Brian Scalabrine. Except my name isn't Brian.

BroSweets
04-15-2009, 02:01 AM
Can't say whose play I emulate, but my friends call me Brian Scalabrine on the court...
I guess since I'm tall with kindof red hair?

Can't say I'm naturally gifted to play basketball, lacrosse golf and sailing (sigh) are my main sports, but I can snag rebounds and box out well. I can also come up with the occasional big play.

Aw who am I kidding, I'm Mike James. There, I said it, now bow down.

in comparison to where i play, and who i play against

im tall, got a long range shot. Lockdown D, shotblocker, lacks inside dominance. Beast at crashing boards, smart with the ball, decent passer.

so id say mix- Okur/luke walton/camby and u get me. Ill put up in a game to 100 easily
