The hardest thing would be, being in good enough physical shape so that you could stay on the floor long enough to score. Even the pros struggle when they return from injury.

After a few months training and getting ready for it, it'd be easier. But no, it wouldn't be easy for anyone here to score. To be on the floor at all, you have to EARN it. And that means helping the team in ways, that other players who are on the bench cannot.

For most people here.. even 5 minutes of NBA intensity basketball would be exhausting.

However, while Ron Artest is an NBA skilled 6'8'' monster, the issue for most of us trying to drive is the fact that NBA defenders would not allow it. I have to be honest, most amateur defenders I've faced have not been great. That said, there's been some amateur guys, a few shorter than me (I'm 6'3'') who were just flat out strong, quick, and physical enough to not really even allow me to get a step to the bucket without them waiting for me. And those guys weren't that great, so to picture a 6'6'' NBA defender picking me up... I am not getting to the hole off the dribble ever. So creating a chance to get fouled would never happen.

I would only score if I was ALLOWED to shoot. I've got a pretty legit shot, but I'm only 6'1, and not even close to D1 talent, much less NBA. If I was given wide open shots, I could hit some... but not with a guy closing out on me that, when jumping, has his hand 11-12' in the air.

Also, if I was fouled I'd score. So maybe I could pull a D-Wade and jump into the defender, creating the contact on my own, and get to the line on that BS foul call.

Here, get in touch with these guys http://alturl.com/jedky or send them an email to the attention of Mr Colangelo. I'm hearing it is relatively easy to get in. For a guy like you, I'd say no problem. Let me know how it goes.

You're welcome.

EDIT: you will need to be willing to relocate to Canada though

Nope. The only way I could score is at the FT line. But how would I get there? No clue. I could say being put in during a blowout and fouled but...why would anyone foul me? There are dumb NBA players so you never know. Small % I end up on the FT line but thats the only way. I'm not scoring no other way. Some of you need to swallow your pride and stop thinkin your RAIN DANCE is going to appear...

No, but I could probably airball a shot or two. I never was much of a jump shooter, and I obviously wouldn't be getting to the rim against NBA players.

Everyone could score from a fastbreak sooner or later but if I get a lot of shoots I am sure I could hit one ( no one would guard me if I shoot from half court , well maybe they would when they see how bad I'm and they can steal me the ball easly but I could still have a lot of full court shots to try every time defender isn't near me ) but for every point I score opponent will score 100+ .

You would hardly get time and when you do this idea fast breaks would be there for you is funny. Stop.
