Arrow Its really hard to concentrate when something bothering you.

Damn Girls in the sideline lookin at us while we play , im not really used to that junk. I mean its normal on League Games but when its a pick-up game, it feels different having someone to watch you play. It Makes me Tired,
Just look at this different , When your Jackin off and lets just put the word to "someone" ..... Someone kept comin inside your room in n out.
And Thats the type of $hit I was Experiencing Earlier while playing.

Despite of all that , My Knee Kept Bleedin and shit.
And You Got a cocky SOAB on the floor thinkin he all that,
One Mistake he yells at you across the court.. I was about to pop that dude in the face.

FML.

Nice analogy.


I find that girls aren't impressed by stuff guys would consider flashy, like ankle breaking crossover or incredible vertical leaps. As long as you score, you look good.

Edit: I was talking about girls that watch you play pickup games that don't know squat about basketball. Girls who watch league games are different.

For some reason my offensive skills increase and my defensive skills decrease in that kind of situation.

That's because no one who isn't a basketball fan appreciates defense.

I could care less if a girl is watching me cus i don't care about impressing them... I mean if I'm going to impress a girl, basketball wouldn't be the way I went about it.

A scout tho... that would be different. Kobe Bryant standing on the sideline watching the game (and you know he is watching who is a baller out there... who has skills), that would be nerve racking for sure.

It's weird though, people claim to care about it but they really don't. Like you always hear "he plays great D" but you know the people saying that couldn't care less.

For the most part though, people don't usually wait and watch the games I play in. It does get annoying though when occasionally people decide to commentate the game like it's some And1 tournament.

I know for me, I love it when guys hustle and play great D. I want to play with those guys... So I know for me I care, but yea I don't know how the masses really feel about it. Obv. the guy who looks pretty out there is going to be held in higher regard for the most part.

Haha I don't commentate like an and 1 tournament, but when I see a good move, pass, or block, etc., I will say something from the sideline. Yesterday I went and watched for a little while (that's all I can do right now is watch), and this kid (about 15 or so and only like 5'8) was making some nice moves. He had a nice little hop step in the lane for a score and I was like "Damn nice move!"... and then later he had a sick cross that got him like 6 feet of space and I was like "Ohhh shit!!" or something like that... I don't really pay attention to what I say So yea I do some commentating... When I appreciate something I let people know. I let that kid know when he came to the sideline that he was the best player out there and asked him where he went to school and stuff... good kid, gonna be a sophomore. I also told him that I would want to play with him first and foremost cus he knows how to run a team... a true PG. You almost never see a good PG in the gym... just some guy who wants to bring the ball up the floor so they can get their cross on or pull up for 3.

Yeah, it's really hard when your mind is somewhere else. Even practice seems like a ***** right now just because I'm thinking so much about grades, student council, the girl and some other random stuff in my noggin'.
