lool im muslim......you

lool im muslim......you don't understand the situation.....our school gym is smaller then a elementary gym. This is the biggest tournament of the year and we luckily got in last second.......we also don't even have alot of players. The school so small we have to go through 2 classes to get players. Its damnn small. We beat a pretty good school that was the main reason.

btw what was the most you dropped? I actually dropped 40 before in my old school brookfield

loool i feel you our team

loool i feel you our team sucked until this season.......our center was 6-4

This year is probably going to be pretty good, we have a 6-8 guy coming in to play Center our PF will be 6-5 and our SF will be 6-3........I will be playing SG and our PG is 6-1

im hoping for a dream season.....Take home the championship and do it big. but Basketball in canada isn't that good at all their are sick players, but none of them make it because people are so Political here.

If a guy is a coach he will bring in his son and all his friends and a few other players. Their all about shooters in this country. They don't strive to find real talent though.

Theo Ratliff

Back in high school, I used get get Theo Ratliff with more offensive game. I didn't start playing basketball until I was 10 or 11 when I was one of the tallest kids in my class with the best standing broad jump in my class, so I was a little raw but could always jump and had good timing for blocking shots. I started out as a bench warmer in middle school, but worked my ass off and my Junior year i was 6th or 7th man on varsity and started my senior year. My Sr. year i was 6'2'' 160 benched 220 and had a 33' vert which peaked at 35' when I was about 21. I've never stopped playing so my offense is much better now than it was in high school, I could have walked on to a couple NAIA schools, but with no scholarship it would have been too expensive. I'd have to say my best high moment was a defensive game, but 7 points 16 rebounds 9 blocks and 3 steals. I could dunk since i was a soph in high school and still can at 27 even though i can just do 1 handed now, but off 2 dribbles so thats pretty decent i guess. As someone who could have tried and didn't I'd just say to you guys who get the opportunity, take it, I wish now I would have walked on.

In highschool, I wasn't that

In highschool, I wasn't that good. I played all 4 years at a pretty good school in so cal. Are varsity never lost a sigle league game in the 4 years I went there. We only got beat by teams from Los Angeles county that were ranked in the state. Our entire starting 5 played college ball. Our center was a top 100 recruit and last I heard was playing ball in europe after he left USC.

I got a lot better after I graduated playing in leagues non stop. I was 6-4 and I usually ran the point. Terrible athlete, but had all the skills down. Great passer and shooter, could use either hand equally well.

Don't know my vertical but

Don't know my vertical but I'm sure it wasn't much. I was listed with flat feet on my birth certificate and was not a good athlete. I have a long wing span. I can palm a ball easily and have a size 15 shoe, so I was a lanky kid.

My comparison, honestly a slower version of Jason Kidd. I always ran point and loved to pass. But because my height I could see over defenses and rebound like a big man. I developed an excellent jumper after highschool. I was usually one of the best players on the court when I ran in most pick up games. I had real good handles. Unless it was a bunch of division 1 level players in which case I would hold my own, but not stand out.

I'm not a very good

I'm not a very good basketball player, I just use my athleticism and quickness/finishing ability to score. I have a 29 inch standing vert, I'll guess I have 33+ running. Can't shoot well at all, and I'm only 5'9 and 160-165 lbs. Pretty strong but I can be defended pretty easy if you just make me shoot from the outside. No way will I play in college. 5'9 combo guard without a jumper...
