if you played ball growing up
who was that one player you always try to be like .
"Pistol "Pete Maravich
anybody born from 1978 to 1995 tried to be like Mike. I used Stockton as inspiration though because I'm also a white PG. I thought that maybe I had a shot cuz he was in the league haha.
well im still growing up cuz im 16,i always loved A.I
Stevey Nash. I don't stop running and pressing and driving to the hoop to kick it out. Never. And I never will.
i tried to be like penny hardaway growing up he was my favorite player
Sir Charles, Dale Ellis, Dennis Rodman and Rolando Blackman
Well Im still 15, but I feel that right now, I kinda play like Stephen Curry, A Scoring PG who can shoot the lights out.
But at first I always loved stockton, for the same reason as knicksfreak haha
Well I Specialized The Rashard Lewis Shot lool......but i like to play like magic johnson
When I was growing up, I tried to be my own player now I watch moves of the pro's and try to add them to my arsenal. Even though I dislike these players, Paul Pierce's turnaround, Rondo's fake behind the back pass and Arenas' step back J are things I have added from watching the game. Also so the Brandon Jennings pass where he like flails his arm as if he is passing it but doesn't even touch the ball. That one is an ankle breaker.
and Magic Johnson. I always was the tallest kid, but loved to play the point and be unselfish. Kidd's rookie year in Dallas, I wanted to pattern my game after him. He has lost sooo much athleticism since then.
I actually saw some guy on the And1 tour do thsi move. You do like 10 low crossovers and then go between his legs with the ball and run around his outside to get the ball after 1 bounce. Just be careful not to rack the guy when you do this. I love that move and use it like once every game.
grant hill. i was only 5ft 5 at the time. but i like how was smart, attack the basketball, had a good shot.
i feel i have seen some of the best guys in the league. I can honeslty say that growing up and playing ball the guys i imitated most were MJ and Kobe. They were guys who did moves that only some people would dream of. i remember watching 1 of MJ's moves and trying to go outside and re enact his very move. especially the byron russell crossover.
I always try to dribble and pass like Cp3 and Rondo. Im a PG and they are players I definitely try to watch and pick up their tendencies out there.
I am still young, the players I have tried to imitate are...mainly, A.I, Adam Morrison (Collegiate Style), and more recently Rubio with passing and defense although I've used Shane's hand in your face D
For a second I thought that said Renaldo Balkman
Penny Hardaway , Rodman, hakeem Olajuwon.
i play like me,since i'm the best.im a beast
tim duncan... im 6'5 but thats kinda big to whoever i play against... usually ill just post up anybody play back to the basket and use the old sky hook or another move... the drive way tradition..
id be like rondo with a worst jump shot i know i cant shot, most likely never will
I was a tall guy who was soft so I looked up to and modeled my game after Dirk. I also tried to be like Manu when I drove to the rim, going around people rather than over them.
i try to play like CP3
Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway before that it was Scottie Pippen
a 5-8 Mark Madsen but with less handles.
rondo meets white chocolate is how i describe my game all the flashy passes and wild 3s but i play my ass off on d
REGGIE EVANS - IM A WORKHORSE BABY
As I got older I took from a lot of people like Kobe, Chris Paul, Tim Duncan etc. How do I lose points for sharing info. Whomever is hating on me be a man and come directly to me. Some of yall on here I can not respect. I don't care about the points thing that much but it is obvious when you lose points for nothing.
Im 18 yrs old and I tried to imitate MJ of course... who didnt... but I was a "prep head"... I grew up on high school basketball... so I tried to be like young guys like Derrick Rose, OJ Mayo, Kevin Durant n Brandon Jennings... but i did imitate Tim Hardaway's crossover, AI, JJ Redick's shot (I even bought the Better Basketball tapes... lmao... Admit it, he was a beast in college)... And after I saw what Vince Carter did in that 2000 slam dunk contest, I've been trying to 360 windmill ever since... I havent gotten there yet... only 5'9"... haha... maybe one day
A.I. Im small but refuse to stay out the paint
I try to play like Ginobili..he's one of the hardest players in the NBA to guard. And i also try to shoot like redick.
Penny Hardaway baby . . . . . . . . .early in his career man, all i can say was stud. excellent scorer who played pass first with wikid vision and a clutch player. thats who i always was on the playground.too bad injuries messed up his career
I don't model my game after his, but I've always found it fun to try to imitate the smooth layup up and under the hoop in pick up games.
growing up i loved MJ obviously but i loved GP n Reggie Miller though i dont talk trash like those 2, haha...then later on it was Jason Kidd and Mike Bibby, my 2 favorite players in the game today. I love how Kidd is a do everything point guard, and can dominate without scoring and i've played that way too bc i always would be so unselfish and i had great scorers or ballhogs on my team plus our offense wasn't made for a pg to score so i had to do other things. Bibby has such a nice jumper and midrange game and is quicker than he looks though he's slowed down and he's a steady point guard. I am not the fastest guy, but I have enough quickness to blow by someone when they dont expect me to and i love using the mid range game
Growing up in Chicago everybody wanted to be jordan even me everytime a shot went in i would shout JORDAN he was it in chicago.
