I'm 6'3", but was cursed with the worst case of white man hops ever. In high school, I could barely get rim. Now, on a good day, I can grab rim with two hands simultaneously. Maybe on a REALLY good day, I'll be able to dunk. But that will require like a month of running on the treadmill, then a few days' rest and a lengthy stretching period.

We did play a team in a really ghetto school once, though, and they had one of those backyard rims on one side of the court. It couldn't have been over 9'. Had a field day with that rim.

Well your height is meant for the 2-3 spot, but still after all those times guarding big guys and working on your post game you could've been a very versatile SF in college or any team that put you at the 3.

I think he could've even played powerforward at college considering he was around 250-260.

In HS I played the 2-5 spots.

It was very interesting.

How did you find the 4-5 spots. I mean, did you have any post moves in your arsenal or were you a Amare/Dwight type of player?

Aha, in grade 9 I was starting PF. Then when I got to grade 10 I stopped growing. I had no shot, only inside game and was a benchwarmer sf. Then in grade 11 I was starting sf/3rd backup pg after I got handles and a shot. Now in grade 12 I start, and legitimately I'm the sf, but I carry the ball up the floor 2/3 of the time because I got better handles than the pg. So I consider myself a hybrid pg.

I've switched my playing spots around A LOT

AND I MEASURED MYSELF LAST NIGHT I'M 5'11 I GREW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
