I was wondering if anyone in here actually play or has played basketball at any level, or even for recreation? Also, I would love to hear (and I am sure everyone else would as well) which NBA player(s) does your game resemble most?

There was a thread about this like 2 weeks ago. Anyways I play a ton of pickup whenever I go back home. Closest player comparison is probably Gerald Wallace. I have good court vision but I'm not much of a playmaker due to my shaky ball handling. I defend, rebound and block shots, and have a decent post game. My shooting is kind of streaky though.

Played on a traveling team from 8th grade through the summer of my junior year and also played for my high school all 4 years with 3 of them being as the starting PG on varsity. Now I play maybe 1-2 times week or when I go home to show my little brother who the king of the court is :)

Since you're a rich man's kobe do you throw a dunk when you do said move instead of a lay up/short bank shot?

I played HS ball and rec ball...dont play that often anymore. I use to think I was Karl Malone because I was so physical on the glass...had a nice mid range jumper too. I would always finish around the basket w/and 1.

Never talked trash I use to grab rebounds and you could hear the slap of the ball through the entire gym...quick off my feet for rebounds and block shots. I was on a team that went 24-0 before losing in the state semis.

Our team was ranked 3 in our group....we had a scrimmage that year and got blown out by 30 by the #1 team in the state....lead by Alonzo Mourning....he had over 50pts...but I played him actually pretty good.

Yup. I'm a Sophmore right now actually and play SF on varsity but I don't start. I'd say I'm decent. Have an okay shot but according to my coach great defense, but I have some bounce in me aha I'll try to dunk whenever I have the opportunity

I'm the starting PG for my highschool but I'm out with a broken hand right now.

I try very hard to model my game after Maravich, since I started doing that my assists went to 11 per game and my points are at 19 with my FG% at 57 and FT% at 88... i was pretty bad before that.

Played one year in high school, quit in favor of baseball (I was better).
But I played high school rec, which in my town, drew larger crowds of alumni and kids than the varsity games :p. I also play a lot of pickup with my boys from back in middle school.

If I could compare myself to a player it'd probably be Paul Pierce (now). I'm only 6'1'' but in high school I mainly played the 3. I'm lights-out from deep, like to sit in the post, and am not very fast but find a way to get to the bucket.

played SF, PF, and C for my high school team. i would compare myself to Reggie Evans with a splash of Matt Bonner. I just outworked people down low, then trailed on a fast break for a 3.

now i play a lot of pick up basketball, and my game has transformed to steve novak...all i do is jack up 3's.

I play High school basketball right now. I play SG but can play PG or SF when needed.

1. I'm a good 3 point shooter.
2. I'm very good from the FT line.
3. I can finish well, but I'm not very good at driving to the hoop.
4. I have good court vision, a high B-Ball IQ, and I'm a good passer.
5. Not good on man to man defense, I get beat easily. I'm not slow, but have slow reactions.

I would compare myself to Ray Allen.

I played for my freshman team but did not get to play a ton of minutes. Now just pick up. I would compare myself to Kyle Korver or Steve Novak. Good 3 point shooter but I can't do much of anything else. Although I have surprisingly good vision.

11-23-2012, 11:38 PM
I started playing in the 5th grade. I couldn't play in 6th, due to bad grades. I didn't pick up again until high school, because when I changed schools for 7th & 8th, they didn't have a basketball team. I was on the HS freshman team. I played a little bit here & there, but no starting. I had a awful tryout for the sophomore team and that was the end of my organized basketball career. However, I always played after school in the nearby gyms and outdoor courts for recreation.

never really got to play in high school got kicked out of the school freshman year. sophomore year i didnt get hardship to play. junior year i ended going to 3 different high schools the coach i played for in texas said i played like a under control Jason Williams because i could make some crazy passes and possessed a decent shot. Quit playing senior year cause well one my coach hated me and two i knew i was going to need money to pay for college. Now i just play at the gym sometimes but nothing major i am kinda fat now

Baseball was the sport I was best at, but I played high school ball and it was easily my favorite sport to play...was pretty much a 6th man type, 5'11 SG who could nail 3's all day long. I shot over 60% from the 3 point range my senior year. I was a shorter Dan Majerle really.

The most fun I had though was playing in a city league with my friends my first year of college. We all had such great chemistry that we ended up winning the league, even though we probably weren't the most talented team.

On a side note, I used to play against David Wesley at the gym I used to go to. He'd usually try to pass the ball around to others, but if you got under his skin, he'd school you...happened to me a couple times.

Two years of ball in school. And more pick up games than I can count. Never played against/with an NBA player. Played against a D-leaguer and got smoke checked. Played against a handful of Division I guys in pick up games and was able to at keep up without getting embarrassed. Honestly I play like a poorer mans Landry Fields... I'm a two guard who can rebound, hustle, do intangibles, but have terribly inconsistent offense.
