Had the last game of the season for a rec league im in @ UCSF. We have a good squad, but the problem with our team was we never knew who would show up on any given night (literally) we only had 4 guys for our last game and we wern't about to not play, so we said fxck it and ran with 4. The other team had about 9 guys give or take.

The game started out alright, we played a box zone and did alright, the other team stayed pretty patient and would swing the ball until someone was open. it usually ended up being a corner 3. we went into half down 8. We made a huge halftime adjustment, switched up from a 2-2 zone to a 1-3 basically. we had one guys guard everything from free throw line extended, then each corner guy would pick up the ball when its in their corner, and then have to drop in help when on the weak side. This D really confused the other team and we came out on fire in the second half. Hit like 4 straight 3 and got some stops, had about a 5 point lead with 10 min left in the 2nd half.

By this time we were pretty fired up because we only had 4 guys yet we were right there with this team, things started to get testy, and our team got called for a couple of techs. In the stretch though the other team hit some big (wide open) shots and won the game. but they only beat us by 5, 81-76. if we had one more person i am pretty confident we would have smacked this team by at least 20.

Playing in a rec league in LA. Just had a game the other day without our best PG. I went 0-3 first half with 2 pts off of FTs, turned it up the second half started getting into JR Smith mode and finished the game with 16 pts in a win.

I completed my first in-game, off-the-backboard, one-hand dunk last week (from a teammate pass, not my own). I'm not really someone that runs around town telling all my family and friends about something lame like that, but I felt I had to tell someone, somewhere, so it seems a brag thread was a good spot.

I made the first 4 jumpers from top of key NCAA 3 point line to start the run but then my teammates freeze me out because they need to shoot too I guess so I ended up going 5-6 for the game and we lost. serves them right for wanting to shoot instead of trying to win the game!

In another run, I didn't shoot the whole game and just play D and pass and get assists until it was game point and then I took a half court Jumper and swished it for the win and everyone goes crazy lol.

I'm the king of half court jumpers but not everyone at the gym knows that lol.

Just want to brag a lil...

But got my first IN GAME DUNK

I've never been an in game dunker only practice dunker. But anyways.I had the ball and i was dribbling it to half court. Some1 set me a high screen. and i took off and i noticed nobody was stepping up in the lane at all. And i was thinking "Im gonna try this" took my two steps and jammed it.

Lets me know my workouts are paying off finally. Because im getting stronger and more confident driving the lane and finishing. Anyways that's all peace!

Swatted a guy 4 inches taller than me twice. Dude has pretty good handles for his size(6'3). First time he was coming down on the fastbreak, spun of my teammate and tried to finger roll it, but I came out of nowhere and trapped it against the backboard. Second time, he was posting me up which was a mismatch but instead of going straight up he did this weird up&under move and i just slapped it out of his hands as he was going up.


Feels pretty good, he was one of the best players at my middle school and now we're going to different high schools.

Hm, to each their own. Sure, getting a piece of a shot, or coming from the weakside for a normal rejection can get lost in the shuffle. But chasing someone down and pinning their layup on the backboard, or sending their shot into the parking lot, or off the gym wall. . . that never gets old for me. It's one step down from dunking in terms of my favorite things to do on the basketball court.
