I like to pass the ball, but i'm mostly a post player. My mentality would be something like KG's just play D, and score/pass. I'd also like to win so my first opportunity I got I would be out of the team that drafted me, unless we were a contender. I hate to lose, and losing would ****ing kill me.

I'd play like Magic Johnson. I'd be having fun, slapping high fives all the time but also with an insane will to win. Also, like Magic I'd be banging bitches 5 at a time. I'd be wearing a rubber though. No HIV.

Magic banged 5 at a time? Where can I read about this?

Better yet, any videos of the action on free pornhub sites?

Steve Nash. I would want to be the leader of a team who gets everybody involved, just a complete goofball off the court but never in trouble, and loved by all fans.

I'd work my ass off any way I could to make my team the champions every year. Money, women, etc. are all wonderful, but I want to be immortalized as one of the greatest players of all time. Same with my team.

I play water polo for my college (not D1 or anything but I think I'm pretty good). It's a lot like basketball. In polo I play good D and shoot a decent amount but I have a problem with retaliating and getting into fights. So I guess I'd be a ron artest kinda player.

I'd try to be a pass first PG but i'd be the guy with killer instinct to take over a 4th quarter.

I always wanted to hit a game winner (not buzzer beater) than walk away with a badass animation. I'd display my thug actions

Probably be extremely arrogant, and backing it up by working really hard
