However, It's a nice feeling when you really get a guy. It's even better when you get someone with the classic crossover. Nothing too spectacular, just a good, hard cross.

Your last time must've been in elementary school (if ever), because with that lard ass of yours your knees and ankles would go to hell if you tried even jogging down the court, let alone try a move.

Just practice the drills every day and they will become easy quicker than you would think. The more you have a ball in your hands the faster your handles will improve.

Search for a guy named Gannon Baker to find some great ball handling drills.

Stro, are you that guy that rips off 20 seconds of dribble moves before taking a triple-teamed fadeaway that goes for an airball in pickup games?

Absolutely not. I'm actually probably passive to a fault, people always have to remind me to do my thing once in a while or shoot the ball when I'm open. I do make moves off the dribble in games, some of them are complex and others are not, but they all serve a purpose. I'm not just out there dribbling in circles carrying the ball and sh!t going nowhere.

Ganon is Tyreke ball handling trainer. Nice video, hopefully you do more.

I'm kind of like that too. I obviously don't have the handles you do, lol, but athletically, I'm fast and can jump, so I can typically make a simple move or two to beat my man. A lot of times though, I don't want to come off as show off or a ballhog (Don't want to be Mr. $100 move, $.10 shot lol), so I kick it out once I penetrate or just set somebody up for the bucket. When it comes to fast breaks though, I feel a lot more comfortable just speeding down the court and taking a guy or two one on one/two on the run backwards. If my shooting is shit, or I don't feel comfortable that game, I usually try to make it up with rebounds and defense and avoid shooting, haha.

How is the rest of your game, aside from handles?

Ball handling aside....

Strengths:
-Defense. I lock people the f@ck down. I don't get many steals or block any shots, but my man does not score. In league games I always guard the best guard on the other team, they never do sh!t. I move my feet well, stay in front of my man, and make them shoot contested jumpers or do things that they would rather not do.

-Three point shooting. I have a very quick release and I easily have range out to NBA distance and probably a little further. I can catch and shoot or shoot off the dribble from 5 feet beyond the HS line no problem.

-Left hand. I'm right handed, yet I drive, finish, dribble, and pass better with my left hand. It confuses people and gives me a bit of an advantage.

-Stamina. I never get tired.


Weaknesses:
-Confidence. I lack it. I need to be on a team with people who I'm comfortable playing with, and sometimes I get in my own head. I am my own worst enemy on the court.

-Strength, height, and athleticism. I have none, and I don't work on it. I am allergic to weight rooms. I weigh 130 pounds soaking wet with Timberland boots on, I'm 5'8, and I can't even jump high enough to grab the rim. I don't feel like I'm exceptionally quick, although people who guard me say I am. If the game gets really rough, I often become limited to being a defender and a three-point shooter because physically I simply cannot compete. For whatever reason my size does not seem to effect my defense, I still manage to give players fits who are 6 inches taller than me and outweigh me by 50 to 100 pounds.

I laughed so hard at this post that I had to go back and re-read to make sure it wasn't some elaborate Evo8-esque ruse.

So here are some pics from my trip in Morocco.



Djemaa el Fna in Marrakech




Monkey trying to pick my pockets in Djemaa el Fna




Leather tanning terrace in Fes




Uh, some Italian girl in the middle of the Roman ruins of Volubilis




If you think I look like a mafioso in his olive fields, you are right. The nice town in the background is Moulay Idriss




Moroccan people near the Hassan tower, in Rabat

How was the trip? As hot as I imagine it must've been? Leather tanning stink so badly they made me literally sick. I enjoyed Marrakech and Fes quite a lot, Djema el Fna was awesome at sunset/night.
