Default Playing Ball

Who here actually plays ball regularly? Did you play in high school? Play varsity?

I'm currently playing in D2 city league for my first year. The last 2 years was just scrimmages at the university gym, no organized ball, and then before that I was captain of my high school team for a few years. Never tried out for varsity since engineering workload is intense.

What about you guys?

p.s. if I ever come to T dot on a trip I want to set up a game with raptorsforumers

played in highschool grade 9/10, starter sf against bigger teams, starter pf against smaller teams. didn't try out in gr 11 or 12 due to personal issues.

I play like Bargnani you could say, high post, but make runs around where I can catch and shoot a 3 no problem.I was always a pg until I hit my growth spurt at which time I had to learn how to play without the ball in my hands. I averaged around 5 assists/game, 10 points/game, 4 rebounds/game. Haven't played organized since, and my offence has dropped, defence held on though. I still make stops in scrimmages. miss it though

Been awhile since I've played. I'm kind of like Odom/Diaw. I can do a little bit of everything. Just I'm way too unselfish. However, when I am selfish, I go HAM. I tried out in grade 11 I believe but I didn't make it. Most of the team was grade 12 and they were quite good and already a unit. Grade 12 I didn't try out. The practices and tryouts were at 6 am. There was also a lot of internal politics involved. The tryouts weren't announced at all in grade 12 and this one guy who made the team made it only because his friends were on the team.

Yes, and 9 years younger than me so at this point she's starting to run circles around me. She's a marathon runner and I'm a softball player. Lol

Oh I love it. But as a guy who used to be extremely active in all kinds of sports, I'm now a 38yr old softball player who nearly keels over of a heart attack after running the bases. I'm not over weight but boy am I out of shape. Getting old sucks.

I played in high school but after that I barely played. I just lift weights now. Plus no one likes playing basketball here anyway. It's all about hockey which I play quite a lot but I rarely watch the NHL.

I'm banned at most gyms for dunking and hanging off the rims.

I've been trying to find the time to get into the "Fat Man League" in Guelph. I sometimes go and shoot down the street at the high school court near my house. I haven't "seriously" balled in over a decade. Badly broke both of my ankles (one of them twice) my OAC year playing ball and they've never been the same since.
