What is your reputation as a baller at the gym? or league?
 
Im not talking about a pickup game when you are fooling around with mediocre players, but when the tough gets going, in a competitive game when 10 people got next, what's your rep?
What do you do best?

On a good game, i'll be able to easily pass the defense and score an easy bucket or pass to an open teammate.

On a bad one I'll lose the ball every single time and then get frustrated and tell one of my teammates to lead the offense.


And I'm a really good defender when concentrated.

I barely talk when I play, unless I call "back door" or something. People usually don't know my name or who I am until the game is over. I don't care for being flashy, so I rarely hear any "Ooo's" unless I block someone or hit a long 3. I left my last league because a kid got angry at me because I challenged his game. He was a foot shorter than I and wanted to fight me, but I didn't want to get in trouble nor did I want to waste any time on him, so I quit the league. I don't care if it was a "pussy" move. He told everyone in the gym that he scared me off. In that league, unless you drop 40+ a game or make every play highlight reel worthy, you won't be respected too much.

Well, today I didnt even get picked. My game is soooo inconsistent right now. Last week, I embarrassed the other team scoring most of my teams points. Today, I kept either airballing or swishing my shots. Not once did it hit rim. Not even one time.:mad:

My physics teacher likes playing with me cause i make good cuts and i am constantly moving. Im definetly not the best out there but i know some people who hate defending me cause they are lazy bums and they cant keep up. And its not that im blazing fast, i just go forever.

You need to be good at one thing, you have to excell at it.
If you aren't scoring, try to defend well, rebound, get loose balls, be a Bruce Bowen type of player, whatever it takes to win the game. Don't be afraid to put your foot under a player if his jumpshot so that he brakes his ankles and the team has to forfeit.

I can do a little bit of everything. I can score a bit, rebound a bit, dribble a bit, etc.

I think I have the reputation of being a Garbage Man. I kinda don't like it. I mean, I take pride in being able to hold my own in the paint despite being a tad undersized, but my own teammates don't really trust me enough to let me post-up or take a few jumpshots, which I can do sufficiently.

Hopefully my last game will show my teammates that they can trust me. I was able to get 8 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 blocks, and a steal.

back home im something of an enigma.. wasnt any good in HS, but turned out to be the best baller out of my entire HS team a few years later..

i live about 6 hrs away from home now tho.. visit every now and then.. around here im pretty quiet on the court and just try to do my thing.. think Tim Duncan at PG.

Getting down the court with the basketball in a hurry and attacking the basket with a vengeance.

People dont know really what to make of me... sometimes I make amazing plays and then the next trip down the court ill blow a bunny. The only thing that compensates is the fact that I lockdown my man on defense and dont try to do anything outside of my abilities (which are pretty extensive as it is). When people need one more for their team though they always ask me...


So I guess thats my rep. Im the guy you want on your team. Period.

What do you do best?


'Playground Legend' @ the Drexel Gym (DAC).

Famous for raining 10-16 footers off the dribble, off a screen, off a skip pass, and tip-blocking shots/getting long rebounds for the break and finish. Usually once a night I will pin someones layup to the glass too. I'd say I get pinned myself once every other week because I go hard to the rim and people I play with at the gym are generally taller than me.
This years freshman class is full of athletic, mid-high IQ black ballers and other freakishly athletic asian ballers so it's a good year. Ever since my freshman year the # of good ballers went down and down.
