I'm decent now but I used to be pretty good. I used to play ball close to six hours a day and was a sick shooter. For a PG, I shot over 50% and I loved the three. I also had a sick tear drop that all the bigs hated. I admit that I was a bit of a ballhog but I would get frustrated when my teammates would blow shots. I felt like my chances of making a shot, even when guarded by multiple players, was better than someone else's chances of hitting an open shot. lol. Needless to say, I'm more of a passer now but I have my moments where I don't miss.

i used to be a beast in 6th grade. but because of lack of work ethic and extreme weight gain(i recently lost it), im pretty decent. its probably too late for me to try and go for a career in ball, but ima try anyway.

I was the fastest white guy, best dribbler, and could jump high for a jew. My abilities were no turnovers and intense defense in Highschool. But I could have never competed D1.
I can still take a game of 21 from anyone though!

man i used to ball when i was younger and ****. they even renamed a whole city after me when i shattered a backboard when my head smashed the backboard. in high school i averaged 40pts and 30rebs a game. i never have had a turnover or missed shot in my career. Well one time I shot the ball full court at the end of the half and it went in and out, but that was a minor setback. once i crossed this kid so bad, he stumbled backwards like he was on skates and then fell. he hurt his ankles so bad he needed reconstructive ankle surgery. he still cant walk to this day. sometimes the game just wasnt fun anymore because i was just too good and it was unfair to let me play. they asked to me to come to the nba as a freshman at 15 but i decided not to accept their offer becuase it didnt want to ruin the whole nba with my immense skills. so there you have it. im the best bball player ever and im too good for the nba

edit: i forgot to mention nobody has ever scored on me and one time i had a 200pt, 100reb, 100ast, 100stl, 100blk. THATS A QUINTUPLE---TRIPLE!!!

12-21-2010, 09:36 PM
Lemme see. I may have a career 20 points in all the pickup games i have ever played. The high school coach litereally laughed at me when I inquired about playing. Dribbled the ball off my shoe on more than one occasion.

However, I bust my *** on defense :D It kept me from being picked last

J_M_B
12-21-2010, 09:44 PM
I stop playing ball seriously after high school. I still play pickup games at the courts, but that's it.

Though, when I was in high school, I was pass first player. I always enjoyed getting my teammates involved, but I would put the ball on the floor and attack the rim. Never much of a 3pt shooter, I did most of my work around the basket and 14-18 ft jump shot.

Ha, but I definitely enjoy watching basketball on TV, then actually playing it now.

12-21-2010, 09:56 PM
So im going to be 100% honest and say I suck.I probally shoot 20% 7 turnovers and dont hustle. One time I was balling in high school but it was becuase I was playing against the unathletic kids. I couldn't play with the basketball team becuase they would emberass me. Im also great at 21 becuase I cherry pick and got a mean FT.

During a game once I shattered the rim on a two handed tomahawk dunk. Since I embrace the balance of the cosmos I went over and did the same to the opponents backboard. After I was slapped with a Flagrant 2, and the ref asked for my autograph.

There's rules specifically against recruiting freshman In football, I'd imagine basketball's the same. It might just be for offering scholarships though. They can definitely scout you. But full on recruiting I'm pretty sure isn't allowed until after your sophomore season or some specific cut off. Schools are talking to you or just watching?

i would say average back in high school. my teammates made me a defensive stopper, can steal and even block even standing 5"7 and fast. i emulated my game on mj's moves so i can score in a lot of ways. decent jumpshot but not at the arc. also versatile, can play 2 and 3.

in college below average because i focused more on my studies. my j aint decent anymore so i emulated dwade's move and attack the rim more. my skills regressed but i still earned my reputation of being a clutch player in close games specially in championships.

Well i would call myself a pretty darn good player. back in elementary school i once scored 65 points in a game. all the kids use to call me baby Timmy because i had a cross over like Tim Hardaway. I ended up averaging 47 points a game in the elementary tournament . but throughout middle school i stop playin ball. i picked it back up my freshman year of highschool and did pretty well although i ended up getting cut off the freshman team. ( I did make final cut though) my sophmore year i came back stronger then ever and try out for the team again this time i ended up makin the freshman team. the coaches were impressed by my vast improvements over the school year. So much by my junior and senior years i ended up playin JV. i have since graduated and been cut from my jr college team. but coach Mack was also impressed by my crossover and strong leadership skills he told me to come back next year and tryout. So currently i am working on my game for next years squad in hopes of 1 day suitin up for an NBA team.

i used to be amazing for my age. i used to practice so much, probably 3-4 hours everyday ever since i was 5-6 years old. i remember i used to play almost 6 hours straight of basketball (half court). I was really short though and i used to play against people atleast 2 years older than me and atleast half a foot taller than i was. but i was so good back then i used to beat them, i used to make the half court shot regularly when i was just 12. i was so fast with a killer crossover, solid jumper, i could hit the open three, great passing, and good defense. i stopped playing when i was about 14 though, after i injured my ankle (my ankle kept bugging me even 3 years after that), and i realized that i was going to be too short to ever play basketball professionally. that was the worst mistake of my life and i still regret it till now. im not saying that if i never stopped playing i would have been the next MJ, all im saying is right now im curious as to how good i would be if i never stopped practicing. All my childhood friends who i havent seen in a while used to ask me if i still play basketball and when i tell them i stopped they always seem disappointed and to be honest im disappointed in myself:facepalm:

bout 6'1, 6'2'' on a good day, 220-230 pounds and I was a post in HS, but i wasn't a true post player. I was more like KG- a jump shooter, (and Im not comparing myself to him). Was a pretty good 3 point shooter on my team, played solid defense, brought some fun to the team. Good enough high school player, nothin special. Potential to have a big game, but will avg. 7-10 points consistently

Used to be strictly a defender with a jumper in my younger years, but as I got older/taller/stronger I turned into nothing but offense, with an occasional spurt of defense :laugh2:

Now for D Im good for some blocks, but man D isnt anywhere close to as good as it was before due to playing offense. Can still play good D though if Im focused and dont need to score.

hahaha that sucks....my coach broke a clipboard over a table at half time yelling at us and the metal part stuck in my leg so i punched him in the face...second half was very awkward when he would tell me to go in he would just grab my shirt and mumble a number (huge fat lip) then after that when i was at school the next day i was suspended at school and kicked off the team

stupid thing is my coach asked me to go out the next year too and i hit him again...

hahaha that sucks....my coach broke a clipboard over a table at half time yelling at us and the metal part stuck in my leg so i punched him in the face...second half was very awkward when he would tell me to go in he would just grab my shirt and mumble a number (huge fat lip) then after that when i was at school the next day i was suspended at school and kicked off the team

stupid thing is my coach asked me to go out the next year too and i hit him again...

Yea, after that I really never got a shot. Sad thing was I was a lot better the most of the guys on the team. I remember coach was all over one guy's nuts because he was friends with the kid's dad. I remember embarassing this kid outside of high school when we played..:pity:

Pretty decent for pick up, but not good enough to play collegiately on any level. I take huge pride in my defense and I'll guard anyone on the perimeter or in the post, big or small. I have a pretty big wingspan for a 6'0" guy, so I'll get around 5 blocks any given game.

My offense is bleh though. I can shoot spot up and I have an alright post game, but I'm a terrible ball handler and I **** up at least once a game.

There really is only one comparison for me: Muggsy Bogues
I was always the shortest one on the team at 5'3 but I was captain and starting PG all through HS then blew my ACL and MCL out in tryouts at University. I would have been a fringe CIS player at best I'm guessing but had handles like no other. I remade all of the And1 mixtape commercials for fun back in HS and can pull off a cross-over like Hot Sauce till this day!

I was pretty good, but the coach didn't want to let a "gay kid" on the team. I always tried to clarify that I wasn't gay, that I was bi, but he never believed me.

I thought I was good until I was cut from my junior high team in 6th grade and when I tried out again in the 7th grade. Needless to say, I probably won't be in any competitive basketball games in the near future. However, I'm a beast virtually via NBA 2k11.

Way too slow and unathletic for NBA. I had some mad K-Love rebounding skills in middle school but stopped growing and never got converted to a pg until playing some street ball.

Played a lot through middle school and high school, as you can see in my sig I'm not the tallest dude, had to rely on my quickness and shooting touch.

I really miss playing in front of a crowd though! cherish that feeling youngins! haha.

Amazing..In high school I was 100% from beyond the arc...100% FG overall...and a defensive wiz.

(*NOTE - I took 1 shot in high school...it went in...*) Loved NBA Jam though!

I was an off the ball player. At 6'4", 205lbs, I modeled my game after RIP and Ray Ray. Deadly jumper, made cuts to the right place at the right times, and used to kill my defenders off screens. I used to play with a PG who used to tell me I should try out for his team in Denmark, but I never went on account of getting an actual education here. Still play in men's leagues now, but am between teams (aka between competent point guards)

I can hang with most people at my university gym (not good enough to make the team, though). I'm an excellent passer and defender, very high IQ. I can also post-up VERY well and can often score on people bigger than me. I suck at grabbing boards, going for steals, and my jumper can be very inconsistent.

haha nice to see most of the guys in this thread being honest. lol at the people comparing themselves to dwight howard/ lebron :)

I'd realistically compare myself to jameer nelson, shoots a lot of threes, undersized, rely on quickness, drive when needed. thats the only reason i could hang with players literally twice my size (yes that picture below is really me, I think I was 5'2 then though hah)

I was a beast in AAU basketball when I was in Middle school. Haha. No one could guard me straight up because I was so much taller and bigger than everyone. When everyone else got tall too, I fizzled out in HS. I was solid but not near the player I was in AAU. Basketball became my third sport behind football and track

I went to a private school in Houston my Jr and Sr year in high school and got a chance to play against Ndudi Ebi who was drafted by the T'Wolves in '03. I graduated in '04 and went to Concordia University in Austin and played for a season before winding up in a walking book for close to a year. For anyone who has been to Austin it's the baseball field right before you get to UT.

i am reggie evans with a better jumpshot... though not as tall as him i'm 5'9 and a half but i can outrebound guys who are 6'5 plus... i get great joy getting rebounds from ppl who think they have the rebounding position or stealing the ball as soon as they rebound... one of my best friends took a shot at my face once cause i kept stealing the ball after he'd get rebounds... i can hit the mid range jumper well
