I am finally feeling 100% good and healthy with my legs under me. I would handle the ball more but we lost alot of our bigs and our team is stacked with guards so I defer more to Matthew who runs the show.


I'm going to seriously have to post videos of myself playing, when I get back healthy.

I would just feel like a fool taping myself.

The only player I know for a fact here who is at the very least decent is lilojmayo ... suprising of all people considering the player he reps and the way he talks pro ball in the forums. LOL j/k

But seriously, I'm going to have to get some video for you guys.

My men's league in comparison to that video I just watched, is like semi-pro ball in comparison.

lilojmayo justed posted a new shootaround video. He is really good, he reminds me of Brandon Jennings. Maga1 was also good he reminds me of Ricky Rubio. I'm with you the rest of the videos i have seen all the posters seem to have some skill, but aren't any out of the ordinary player. At least I am not alone in this.

He's got some skill. Doesn't play anything like B. Jennings, but you can see he's got some game.

We were playing in my basketball class and this team that put themselves together thought they were the sh!t. They'd beatin everyone badly.

It consisted of 2 JC players, and 3 high school stars. They had the height, unfortunately for them they ran into a team in my team that wasn't intimidated. The first play they passed it to my cover and I ended up blocking him. It set the tone for the rest of the game, we just out defensed them.

We won 11-2

For real


Played 1 pickup game yesterday... had to take it really light tho so I guarded a 6'3 big guy. He got me in the post once but he didn't move around much so it was all good

Went 3/4 for 4 of my teams 8 points (play to 12) with an airball from 3 to start it off... pretty standard lol. I was glad I made the rest of my shots tho that airball was ugly lmao like a foot past the rim. Didn't think I was going to play tho so I didn't' get a proper warmup (standard excuse lol).

Amazingly my left hamstring actually felt a lot better after I played... I don't quite get that but I will take it

nice, glad your pick up game has been pretty spot on. As for me, well LOL. I've been running pick up during the week with a few friends and some of our colleges men's team players. I literally only get off 2-3 shots a game, have a hard time getting good looks and have been lacking getting past anyone on the drive. My defense has been sharp, but the people I've been playing against have just been too good to consistently light up the court.

League play I've been good though. It also helps that I'm playing with people in closer range of my skill level, not college ballers.

I could have made my high school team pretty easily and I beat high school players a lot (not from the good teams mind you). But my time was consumed doing marching sports which I've been into since I was a freshman.

My passion for basketball is only rivaled by my passion for music. My music took me to an undefeated state title, and an undefeated circut title. It took my to Dayton, OH for world championships and China for the Olympics.

I have not regrets in not playing. Well.... I wish I could've done both.

Well yea playing college ballers I wouldn't expect to get off a lot of good looks either. I would hope they know how to play some D That's great practice tho I assume your game has gotten a little better because of it? Should make playing against those other guys easier.

Played yesterday, lost two but won the last game when I was implored to "turn it up" by my friend. The other team had a tallie (6'6'' with long arms) who was way more skilled than my cousin (6'4'') but we kept the games respectiable. Not really very competitive though.
