Default Re: Compare your game to an NBA player

Hmm.. Not to sound cocky but if I was good enough to be an NBA player I'd be a new breed. I'd be like Rondo but with a shooting touch. My strength is defense and playmaking.. but can also drain jumpers and get hot. For me defense is easy unless I'm guarding someone way taller than me obviously. I never get burned on defense.

I'm only 6'0 tall so also undersized like Rondo. Too bad I don't have a mutant wingspan and gigantic hands lol or maybe I could of done more with basketball. My weakness has always been ballhandling. I have smallish-average sized hands for an athlete.. so controlling the ball is hard at times.

Sounds similar to what I was getting at. I almost said Steve Nash with defense... but I don't have the shooting touch and handles of Nash at all.

Tony Allen, ish. Bad decision maker at times and ugly jumpshot but decent finisher around the rim and committed on defense.

I like to say Nash with defense, but I also relate with Rondo...its tough to say.

If we had Rondo's beastly wingspan and hands.. we might be in the NBA. LOL. Rondo with a shot.. or Nash with defense sounds unfair.

Channing Frye.

I'm a big man(6'5", obviously not by NBA standards) but I take a lot of 3 point shots and I'm really streaky. Only a decent defender, nothing special. Starting to develop some post up moves but not still mostly a jumpshooter.

one of my friends compared me to Anderson Varejao. He essentially said because I'm good on defense and a good role player (this was when Varejao was coming off the bench, not that I came off the bench, but all my points would be "quiet,").

I agree with the second point, and I'm not bad at defense but I wouldn't say it's a highlight of my game. I'd say I can make good precision passes and I'm a good inside scorer but I'm working on extending my game to mid range and the occasional 3. That being the case, I don't know who I'm like now.

people at my park call me reggie... as in reggie miller. which is like an ultimate insult being a knicks fan growin up in the 90s. howevers it grown on me, i accept it since he was a lethal shooter as well as super-clutch.

but i do more than him on the court, i play very good defense and can break down defenses and dish it too. just not a very good rebounder thats all. mostly cuz of my height
