I can dunk and I still got cut
 
What is the problem here? Im 5'6''? The coach didnt even really think about it. After tryouts he was like "you, yeah, you didnt make the team..." I felt like crap even though I didnt show it. I was really confident that I was gonna make it after I threw it down in the park over the summer. Its just a pity.

Just because you can dunk doesn't make you a good basketball player. If you can't shoot or play decent defense you'll never make a team.

I can shoot but I tried out at PG so I didnt show him my stroke. remember Ray Allen in the beginning of He Got Game shooting those college threes??? I can totally do that. Just swish shot after shot. I just didnt do that. Its still a pity.

Find out when the teams practices, walk in, and show coach how good youare.

shoot the coach, sometimes violence is the answer


How dare that idiot not put you on the team just because you can dunk and you think you should be on the team?!?!? How dare he?!?!?!

Give the Sonics a call, I'm sure they'd love a cheap replacement for Jesus. Give you what, 50k per year, as opposed to 15mil for Ray. Then they could just sign Garnett with the leftover money. Check this lineup...

PG - Ridnour
SG - Some random 17yr old kid who can shoot 3's like Ray
SF - Shard
PF - Garnett
C - Wilcox

How could they not win it all? Plus the random kid can also dunk. AND HE'S 5'6!!! Give them the chip already, it's over.

Maybe he didn't like you're attitude, you sound kinda cocky. Or maybe it's because you're 5'6, he wanted some taller kids to run point.

The first thing I need to do if I want to make it big is to make my HS team which I didnt. So I mean I think Im good but I dont have the credentials.

Some one should forward this to Jeff right now!

He needs to post this under the rumors section.
This is certified information.

The sonics are winning the chip this year

just go to another high scholl and try out for them.

Maybe you didn't have the passing skills, driving, IQ, etc. to play PG. What about SG?

Also, anyone can hit open shots...what about with someone within 5 feet of you? There are a lot of possible reasons for not making the team...

Ralphy J 10-29-2006 09:46 PM

:confusedshrug: how logical is that i'v never heard of trying out for a team where you don' go to school

Don't shoot the coach even though he might deserve it!! Ahhh... the hell with it do what ever makes you happy!!! lol

Remember there is still next year!!! And keep working on your game never give up!! Try out for other BBall teams there should be some other programs around your area!! Hard work and team work is the key!!!:D

Slickshot 10-30-2006 07:57 AM

I've had 2 guys at my tryouts who can dunk a bit taller than u tho.. but they can't do anything else... of course they don't make the team
