Thanks for reading. I can get hot with the J and I am a decent perimeter defender but my best days of athleticism are behind me. I would play you tho

We need more guys my age to play. I keep saying we need to find older guys to play but I think that's what all the 20 year olds are doing with us

I guess this is why health journals are so obnoxious and unentertaining. At this point I sound like a broken record.

1. Young people, not my thing to be around anymore. I'm like the old guy at the club, not a good look. So I prefer playing alone and this way I can avoid stupid fights.
2. After being inactive since last game I struggled through fatigue today.
3. Now I have to fight through scar tissue pain on my right shoulder, yet not on my left wrist, which is surprising.
4. It's still an uphill battle to get the right nutrition, I don't eat enough protein.

I think my conclusion has become this: I find that the healthiest lifestyle for me is not even when I'm playing a lot of bball, its when Im up early walking around, using less desktime (sucks cause I draw a lot) and when I am constantly active throughout the day. If I am inactive, sitting around (even if im working) and just not being mobile I will easily lose all of the cardio gains.

It sucks but it looks like from here on out playing competitive bball will always be an uphill battle. So not fun but, **** it, this is how it's going to be. I am going to try to get into a lot more biking and use basketball as more of a compliment to the biking. Maybe I will get more inspired during the season.

And I now owe eight thousand dollars because of that fight early this summer. No insurance in this country is Fd. Credit? Fd. I can see why people in the hood would rather kill or be killed, fighting is too expensive. That's a terrible joke.

Anyways, years later and I'm livin in the city and after slackin last year due to city adjustment and then a brutal winter, I am back in somewhat of a rhythm.

The city is cool. Smarter people and a great variety of people that gives you that american world feel. It's an american city.

After a few training sessions and consistent play, I have noticed soreness whereas befoe the soreness would go away earlier, but when I'm on it feels good. Got a good chi energy lift from the repetition.

But my days of going maybe twice a week or at least once a week of good hard action may be at an end. We will see.

Hitting threes like Kawhi.

Feeling the wingspan.

I'm too short for the pros.

Maybe Europe.

But I'm too old now.

Maybe I could do a season in Puerto Rico or something. Nah.

I beat this guy one-on-one today. I was surprised I won.
This guy he was an outside shooter with this Kyrie Irvingesque dribble-play. He faked me out pretty good at first, I had to adjust to that snake dance haha
He creamed me off the bat with multiple threes but I started driving and actually working on finishing my drive game with soft touches.

That felt good.
Hit a runner off the backboard.
Hit a bank shot from the wing.

ENded up winning the 2nd match and ended it there.

A great workout for sure

Well we have passed the halfway point of the summer and I seem to have physically peaked. I'm feeling strong and physically fit but my body is beginning to get tired of working out. I'd rather not spend so much energy on something that takes me a while to recover and use the energy more wisely. I don't want to risk injury trying to prove something and over-exerting myself. I can walk without soreness and I want to keep it that way. This is called getting old.

I've won some battles and Ive gotten my ass handed to me. There are definitely some ballers in NYC, a lot of dudes here have polished post moves which is against the current NBA trends (maybe that's why they are not in the NBA) but the half-court dominance (so many half court games, no full court) is a bit annoying. I like to run and spot up to shoot and that is severely lacking in the half-court. Maybe it's the courts i'm visiting so I'm still looking for more full-court challenges. I mean, players basically sit at the half-court line watching the game. That shit doesn't go down in my hometown.

Anywhoo, a good summer so far. I love it. Sun and basketball. The best.
