Default I can dunk and I still got cut

What is the problem here? Im 5'6''? The coach didnt even really think about it. After tryouts he was like "you, yeah, you didnt make the team..." I felt like crap even though I didnt show it. I was really confident that I was gonna make it after I threw it down in the park over the summer. Its just a pity.

Just because you can dunk doesn't make you a good basketball player. If you can't shoot or play decent defense you'll never make a team.

I can shoot but I tried out at PG so I didnt show him my stroke. remember Ray Allen in the beginning of He Got Game shooting those college threes??? I can totally do that. Just swish shot after shot. I just didnt do that. Its still a pity.

Give the Sonics a call, I'm sure they'd love a cheap replacement for Jesus. Give you what, 50k per year, as opposed to 15mil for Ray. Then they could just sign Garnett with the leftover money. Check this lineup...

PG - Ridnour
SG - Some random 17yr old kid who can shoot 3's like Ray
SF - Shard
PF - Garnett
C - Wilcox

How could they not win it all? Plus the random kid can also dunk. AND HE'S 5'6!!! Give them the chip already, it's over.

Maybe he didn't like you're attitude, you sound kinda cocky. Or maybe it's because you're 5'6, he wanted some taller kids to run point.

Some one should forward this to Jeff right now!

He needs to post this under the rumors section.
This is certified information.

The sonics are winning the chip this year

Maybe you didn't have the passing skills, driving, IQ, etc. to play PG. What about SG?

Also, anyone can hit open shots...what about with someone within 5 feet of you? There are a lot of possible reasons for not making the team...
