do you think if invited to camp. you can make a pros team.
Probably not but I like to think that I could.Seriously I would try my best but if it wouldn't cut it I would try again but I really do think I could
hell no lol
dude theres 6 billion or so people on earth... the nba is the best 300 or so of those.... so based on that im sayin that nobody here could... but its possible... people dont realize basically everybody in the nba is ridiculously good..
haha no. im good but a six foot, white shooting guard doesnt really make it in the pros
The 14 year old prodigy? Uhmm I'm not sure about me because I'm young, but I can put 40 up against any high-school freshman team in Illinois. My coach says I'm a mix of Wade and Ray Allen.
I played a pick up game a long time ago with Glen Rice, Matt Geiger, Alen Ogg (not sure if spelled correctly). Alen Ogg was a 12th man center who probably never averaged more than 20 minutes a season and dude coudn't miss from inside of 17 feet. That should tell you a little about the quality of skills these guys have. Even the 12th man of a team.
Umm..no, lol. 4 years of highschool ball, and not a single letter from a college program. Their loss.
you be suprise. coaches dont look just for talent. they look for dedication, hustle and heart, willingy to sacfrice their body every night. trust me if you was trying out for a coach like larry brown. and you came in camp everyday playing good defense, hustling, diving for balls, good attitude, being the first in the gym and the last to leave. theirs a good chance brown would take a serious look at you. ask cartier martin.
LMAO you say that like its easy...no way dude
Too bad we couldn't have a big pick up game amongst ourselves to see who really gots skills. I bet I've got one of the most money jumpers on here.
im telling you i seen dudes on the street that can hoop , better than some of the players in the league, but they couldnt go to a d1 school because of drug use, bad grades, attitude problems,
Im still 15, but im one of the best scorers in my age group..
I averaged over 35ppg and nearly 10 apg last year, but im working hard to get ot the next level.
im sure you do. i can shoot the lights out, rebound, play defense, im quick like lighting.
I could play . Anyone live in NY?
I would have to officiate now. My playing days ended 2 years ago when I tour my ankle up. I broke it, tore all my tendons and ligaments and popped my ankle completley out of socket. Surgery took like 5 hours and I still have a limp.
damn wtf you do. try to dunk on 3 people from the free throw line.lol
Naw, I was fighting 3 dudes in Mexico and didn't realize i messed it up until the cops grabbed me and arrested me. I'm honestly not sure how it broke. No joke.
did you get into a fight
Henry25 i'm the exact same.
If we played a game I would probably suck, I just use my speed and athleticism to get past my defender. Anyone who can play good D would lock me down unless I got hot.
I was there with some friends for a bachelor party, and I was talking to some girl, next you thing you know there was 3 dudes in front of me saying "you don't need to be talking to her". I a stcuk my chest out and said "is that right" but before I even finished my sentence they started swinging. I went down on the first punch, and I think that is when I must have broken it. But I got up and started swinging and we were in a crowd of people at a club and I was just on adrenaline. Next thing I know the cops grab me from behind and threw me in a pick up truck. Immediately the pain in my ankle just exploded. And I worked construction, so I was pissed because I knew I was'nt gonna be able to work for awhile.
lol all you guys kill me.....come on really...for the people who said they could make it, if they played defense...
1. Do you even understand how athletic people in the NBA are. i am willing to put $100 says no one on this board can keep the 12th man on any roster in front of them. I also willing to put another $100 down that says any NBA player can prolly bench press twice what you weight. So even if you do stay in front. It doesn't matter they would out muscle you in a heart beat.
2. Am i really hearing kids brag about putting up 35ppg etc., LOOK news flash kids. I am extremely sorry to break it to you guys but if you're not on varsity as a freshmen, your chances of playing d-1 are extremely slim. Every player i know that is playing d-1 or we have recruited has played varsity since they were freshmen or in some states 7th and 8th.
just think about it. It really isn't that hard to score in Highschool, the talent level is extremely weak. Heck when i was a Soph. in Highschool. I put up 45 points on a team that has ranked #3 in the state for their class. and had 3 all state players. I am not bragging, i am saying if you can't score in Highschool then you got problems with your game.
Nerlens Noel's 12ppg and 7rpg in HS won't cut it in the NBA?
Yeah Tim is right. I have played a guy who is going to play at Iowa State and he kicked the &$#%#&@! out of me. He has no NBA future, and I never thought I did either.
Hmmmm... I'll wait before i say it but.
FoTG. What is your numbers then? Bench, squat. Cleans?
Tim do you anyone that would or could work with me individually on my game?
Lol.....Mike it depends on the money you got bro. Money makes the world go round.
You squat nearly 600 pounds??? That is NFL LB stuff.
6' 200lbs!!!!! Damn you stocky Mofo! I might question the explosiveness in ya then.
Well god damn of course you're going to lead the team in rebounding your ass takes up the entire lane!
Tim...can u help me?!
Are you talking to me or Tim?
Tim where would 350 get me?
It's all good man.
R-Dot-13 if you average that much you need to play for Memphis lol. But I know I couldnt play in the NBA i have a inconsistant shot when im hot im good when im off im bad I have average athletism and I struggle against taller players there is no way I will be in the NBA.
Ah what you guys want from me? If you guys are serious and want the biggest change you will ever have....and you got THE MONEY... Enroll at the IMG basketball Academy or TIm Grover's camp.
I can give you a basic work out some of the guys do here. But to go into detail would kill my fingers.
some kids start at
6a.m Morning Jog
12:00p.m Drills (Shooting, Handling, Concepts)
8:00p.m Free lance workouts. (Open for anything, Weights, Drills, some watch film of the drills to see what they are doing wrong)
and most kids are out by 10 some stay until 11 but those kids don't do so well the next morning
35 PPG and 10 APG? Those are some crazy numbers. What school do you play for?
In their freshmen year I played with two division 1 players, one is on next years mock draft and he did not get heavily recruited until the end of our jr yr, same with my other friend. It takes some players longer time to develop than others
my bad FoTG. Nah i was just making fun of you. You are what you are man don't get mad, If you get insulted and don't like it then maybe you should be learning a way to change it isn't of just getting mad when people state the obvious.
I was gonna ask if you can help me get interviews.
As a fan, we have the right to make judgment, and stuff like that
But when the fans become players its a different story, on this site we make fun of guys, the worst PG in the NBA can probably kick all of our asses in a 1v1
I am glad everyone seems to be pretty realistic on here. Someone wrote that the NBA had the best 300 players. I understand what you are trying to say, but realistically a lot of those guys are not the best 300 playing professional basketball. There are a lot of guys that are better playing in other leagues, just not the very best. Personally, I think the best players are smaller guys because they are generally the most skilled and athletic. The problem is that most of these teams think they need 7 footers, which ends up getting them Jaron and Jason Collins on their roster. Part of that thinking is true when you have a guy as skilled as Yao or as strong as Shaq down low. Like the one guy said, there are a lot of things that keep some guys from making it like drugs, grades and even injuries. I know that it was hard enough just growing up in a super small town. No matter how good you were, you were ignored if you did not play in one of the two "big cities." I played with a guy that was definitely d1 basketball material, but teams only showed interest in him for baseball and none of those were major schools in the sport. Sure he's playing in the MLB now, but he was a better basketball player. Basically what I am saying is there is a lot that can happen from the time a kid starts playing until they reach college/nba draft eligible age.
I don't understand Q interviews for what?
and FoTG....Dude you're 200lbs at 6' it aint all muscle. Chris Paul looks stocky at 175lb and you want me to believe at 200lbs you are cut like greek god Ummm. Dude don't get mad when people state the truth and if you didn't gain any explosiveness from losing weight at 200lbs then you didn't train the right way. simply losing weight will not increase anything there are ways to go about it.
My site. I want some interviews from players. I was hoping you can help.
To answer the question. I would not play a sec in the NBA. I can play ball but not like that
that aint my forte there Q...usually kids only do interviews for major publications. Rivals, scout, espn. Other types of big named sites. And the best chance you have at a interview is kind of like a sneak attack one. Just randomly show up and hope they take the 5 mins to answer.
I mean some of these guys love the attention but most hate it.
Well maybe you forgot to write it in but simply doing that when your muscles are used to the intense weight training is why you felt weak dude....You got to accompany those plyo's with muscle toning, simply put higher reps lower weight. Intense plyo's, if you go through the right Plyo program (6 weeks, 3 days foot work, 2 days lifting) i can not see how you didn't gain any explosiveness. Matter of fact it is quite un heard of.
Not really.....not yet atleast. I'm in the student coaching program at Kentucky, but i'm about to get on the staff soon as a spot opens up.
i am guessing he wants interviews from Wall, Cousins, etc. but i don't do that stuff. We have media people that set that stuff up.
Yesssir... U still got to keep your muscles in shape dude. Think Sprinters...Usian bolt is ripped in every muscle group there is...Running, changing directions deals with all the muscles. You got to Tone though, and depending on the case strength building as well.
I'm sure you understand that it is extremely important to lift during the season. If your just running then your body gets weak and just can't handle the beating. lifting will increase your stamina, kind of a basic concept you know if your body is use to lifting that much weight then it stays the same but if it doesn't have to lift that weight anymore it breaks down.
