Who here has played with or against NBA or College Players

I saw 8th deadly sin say he played with O.J. Mayo and I didnt know that...I thought it would be cool if we all talked about our experience playing with our against NBA or College Players

I played H.S. basketball agaisnt Danny Green of UNC and the Cavs....He played for St. Marys and was probably their best player they ever had, by his senior year we new he was going to UNC so there was obviously alot of hype...he was awesome, at the time was just completely more physical then everyone else, but still had that unselfishness and pretty much dominated every facet of the game, very unselfish for his superior talent

Just two

I can only claim two, against Carmelo and 3 or his entourage in 3 pick up games about 3 months after he won the national championship at SyracuseI . I was at my gym and me and a buddy (he does not play basketball) had literally just finished our workout when Melo sat down next to me in the locker room (Same gym the Ravens used to work out at, if you are from Baltimore you know which one). Completly and utterly shocked I listened to their conversation and when they stood up to head toward the gym me and my buddy didn't speak a word and followed them right into the gym. 2 other guys strolled in and I found myself asking Melo and his crew if they wanted to play a pick up game. We ended up having 2 of his crew and two of the gym members on each team. After they (Melo's team) annihilated us I actually was stupid enough to ask them to run it back twice and they did. Got my butt completely whopped but it was one of the funnest times I have ever had playing sports. It was great to see someone of his stature would still oblige a couple gym rats to a few pick up games.

Will Demps (NFL Safety) used to play pickup games at the same gym, played with him numerous times.

I played grammar shcool basketball(he went to my school) with Durand Scott of the Miami Hurricanes, he is actually a friend of mine. He is one of the biggest trash talkers I have ever met but he can back it up.

Lived a mile from J.R. Reid

Lived a mile from J.R. Reid when he was the number one high school player in the country(long time ago). Played some pickup against him in his high school gym. He set a pick on me at mid-court, and I thought I had run into a telephone pole.

I ended up playing at J.R.'s former high school for one year, before moving to North Carolina.

Played against Hubert Davis at UNC's basketball camp when I was 16. He didn't seem like anything special--just some average, skinny kid. I was quite surprised when he turned out be good enough for the NBA.

J.R. Reid, man that is a

J.R. Reid, man that is a blast from the past. I was a pretty big fan of his especially back when he played for the Hornets.

I played A.A.U. against Dennis Lattimore of Arizona and Notre Dame and some pick-up games at the KU rec center against Aaron Miles, Keith Langford, and Bryant Nash ( he wasn't much of a player, but at 6'6'' he was one of the best athletes I've played with his vert was insane.

Watched Television with a

Watched Television with a 14-15-year-old Alonzo Mourning in an Old Dominion University Dorm lobby once(basketball camp). Got within a foot of Len Bias that same week. Bias was hanging out with Kenny Gattison around Norfolk for a brief period. Len passed a year later.

There was lot of basketball talent in the "Tidewater" area of Virginia at that time. Allen Iverson and Joe Smith came up in the same area years after that.

JR Reid peaked at age 20. On the college level he was a combination of Kevin McHale and Karl Malone. Didn't quite have the length or lift for the tall-ball NBA of that time. Wonder what he would have done in this era.....
