"Big words?"

First of all you conveniently took them out of context. I was asserting that defense is all about fundamentals and effort, regardless of talent, and NBA players need to learn these fundamentals instead of just handchecking all the time. I then brought up a personal example: the years of effort, studying tape, getting owned over and over and over and over again and bouncing right back up, the years of training to become a good defensive player due to pure hard work and fundamentals, and after all that time, YES, I take pride in it. I have a right to. I've worked at it. I play OUT OF MY MIND HARD on defense, and yes, I'm pretty damn good at it. That's a fact. I never said anything else. I didn't say I could do it in the NBA. I didn't say I was a good basketball player even. I just said I'm a good, fundamental defender, I can play with anyone, and if I can, so can anyone in the NBA so they're out of excuses. Those are not big words. And if they are... fine. Ive earned them. Bite me.

Could you beat me one on one? Maybe. Probably. I do my best work in a 5 on 5 setting. One on one I am shaky. You'll probably kick my ass. You're probably better than me at most things. And I don't really take myself seriously on offense anymore. All I know is that I get picked over much better overall players in pickup because nobody wants me guarding them.

I'm not the best... I know that. Lame topic. Lookin for something to hate.

JSub is an idiot, don't worry about it. He loves Green Day and has an attack on every poster at some stage.

Look at this kid. Another failed attempt at talking smack to me.

Personally, I've got nothing against GeeWiz since he's one of the more respected posters on this board, but I cant let bullsht like this fly. I realize now that you werent being serious, but it was still something outlandish to claim about yourself.

I wasn't trying to sound like the God of Basketball, but I was being serious in the context of my original argument.

defense is about way more than effort and hustle. The best defenders are generally the best athletes and have the most natural talent ie lateral movement, timing, quickness.

I usually dont unless I read something ludacris thats makes me shake my head in disgust. But I know it was for sake of argument, so GeeWiz's statement is now water under the bridge. You should know your place, boy. There are way too many good basketball offensive and defensive players. You never hear the greats (whether local gym, street or even NBA) talk about their greatness. Everyone knows their names by watching their game, not their posts on an NBA forum.

As annoying as geewiz can be, I bet he can spell ludicrous correctly and not the way a rapper does Stop trying to sound like some superior intellect to the kid

I am a superior intellect compared to the kid. I petition to change the dictionary spelling of ludicrous to ludacris b/c it has more social impact and has more aesthetic appeal.
