For me, Kyle Lowry or Flip Murray.

---Undersized crappy combo guard
---Handles the ball not well, but ok
---Not a good shooter
---Gets rebounds (Lowry is averaging 3.9 per game despite being 6'0, and had 9 boards on Tuesday against the lakers)
---Sh!tty defense
---Occasionally catches fire and scores a bunch of points

And you?

Andrea Bargnani (6'1 is big for a pick up game)

Im the dude who will defend the big guy on the other team on defense. But on offense I'll be doing most of my work on the outside.

in college pick-up games Rondo/Monta (drive inside, kick it out, steal the ball, shoot once in a while, pretty good defender)
on a playground where I'm usually taller than others AR4/Garnett (block shots, handle the ball, take it inside, hit mid-range once in a while)
vs friends J.R. Smith lulz (brb taking 30 footers for the lulz)

Craig "Eggs" Ehlo

I know my limitations, basically. I am a great defender. No, make that excellent. I can hit some outside shots, and play the pick-and-roll offense very solidly. If my team needs it, I will throw hands. Not getting punked.

Paul Pierce.

-Deceivingly Quick.

-Great footwork

- Solid Midrange Shot

- Can score in bunches

- Can play good ass defense when motivated

- Decent rebounder

- Good handles

- Can dunk, but not flashy

They call me Pierce around the courts in my area lulz.

Followed Pierce his whole career (Yes practiced his moves/footwork, jab steps, stepback jumpers, etc. for years. HS coach coached Pierce for a bit + Pierce was always one of my fave. Will never forget how he shiitted on Artest when they trash talked each other in the playoffs years ago and buried the 3 on his ass lol).

I also take ridiculously long shots that have about .5% chance of making. Only because of how good it feels to actually make them.

LAWL, there's always somebody on a pickup team like that. (usually the fatty who thinks he's Ray Allen takin' contested 3's and shootin' 10% from the field).

Lloyd Braun
01-07-2010, 03:27 PM
I play to look good first, win second (serious).

I have (actually had, haven't played in over a year) good handles and some nifty tricks up my sleeve but my outside shot was = fail. A few years ago I started working on developing a three point shot so I'm either driving or taking a three. I have no mid-range game lol.

My defense sucks b/c I expend all my energy on offense (serious). I try to block shots b/c I can jump pretty high for a white guy. That's about it.

So you enjoy raping women in your spare time at the hotels between games?

Uh, remember Kobe's last game winner? He traveled to get into position. Oh snap.

Scores 3 points on 10 shots? Lebron averages more points per shot than Kobe when you count total points/shots. Take out free throw points, and Lebron still averages more points per shot. Oh snap.

Wait...you are aware that the only reason that Kobe is averaging 1.3 more points a game is because he takes about 3.5 more shots a game? By Lebron's points per shot, he'd be averaging 5 more points a game if he shot as much as Kobe.

You're a smart one.

Stockton-

take good care of the ball and set others up for the most part. Can score if left open. Usually at my best when I don't have to be the primary scorer though. Not flashy for no reason, but can make the behind the back pass, etc, if it's necessary. On the defensive end, good perimeter D and scrappy with the ability to force TOs

I haven't played basketball in a while, but in high school I usually played like Artest or Bowen. I've always enjoyed defense more, and was always put to defend the others best offensive players. I could play dirty when needed, but still had a good 3 point shot. The main difference is that I was usually more athletic than the other players then, and was one of the few that could touch the rim easy in high school so I was a dominant rebounder and inside player too.

01-07-2010, 04:30 PM
Average ball handling skills, can't drive with the left hand, can't hit outside shots.

I got pretty good defending skills and am tall enough to contest for rebounds. I mostly look for the assists on offense though unless I get something down low.

Basketball is not my strong suite lol.

I like how you and the other Kobe fanboy's balls hurt when you point out a fact proving you wrong.

It's not my fault that someone Kobe fanboy tries to say Lebron only averages 3 points per 10 points, when Lebron averages more points per shot than Kobe.

Not my fault you cry and claim that the Lakers are the best team in the league when they are 6-5 against winning teams, and 0-1 against a top 5 team.

Not my fault that the only bragging you can do about Kobe is his game winners against bad teams. If Lebron was on the team, they would have been in the lead and wouldn't have needed the chance.

Bitch slap me. Do it.

Or, you can go fap to the Lakers constantly losing to terrible teams and Kobe taking half of his teams shots and still not able to be first in MVP voting.

I'm impressed.












not.

Seriously. Try to get a life or something. You Kobe fanboys try to flame Lebron and when someone proves it wrong, you try to act like we're hating on Kobe and the Lakers. Your reasoning is fail.

No. He's a retarded Kobe dickrider. He flames Lebron, and then cries when you prove him wrong and bring up facts about how Lebron is better than Kobe in the areas he brings up.

If he was obsessed he'd see Kobe and the Lakers for what they are. A team that is 1 game over .500 against winning teams, and Kobe being nothing more than half of his teams field goals even though he has 2 teammates that are shooting over 55%.

And for some reason, just like last night's game in the 3rd quarter, they believe Kobe is GOD because he's shooting right at 50% and takes 25 shots in a quarter while up until the last few minutes of the quarter, the rest of the team shot like 8-9 shots and only missed one. Seems like Kobe should have passed the ball more since his teammates were scoring at a higher percent than he was.

But Kobe fanboys don't see that.

Damn it page two, I wanted to post in before everyone says they're Kobe Bryant.

In pickup games I'm a cross between Chris Bosh (physical stature and jump shot) and Tim Duncan (low post moves).

I'm not amazing but 6'4 is medium-tall in most pickup games and I take full advantage of that. Face up against bigger guys and post up against smaller guys.

I'm also capable of guarding almost all positions including the 1, lateral quickness ftw but lol I barely get off the ground.

Most of what you said actually made no sense. You need to learn to make a complete thought if you are going to flame someone. Then you need to learn to make a complete thought and actually make a point if you're going to call someone who makes points to prove someone else wrong a Lebron dickrider.

Seriously.
