FINALS Name ur style...

In school my friends and I would always lower the rims to dunk like Vince or Kobe, or try to shoot like Jesus or Dirk or Sheed. When we got older and developed our games a bit, it became more about our styles of play and who they compare to. My one friend used to practice his form in the mirror to shoot like Allen, and even had a lot of Ray-Ray in his overall style of play. Another buddy is fairly tall, a decent rebounder, and loves hittin that one-legged turn-around jumper of Nowitzki's. Dirk it is then. Myself? I'm a spot-on (even left-handed) Manu Ginobili - minus 7 inches, NBA athleticism, and consistent 3 pt range. Still, I'm relentless getting to the rim, have kind of an awkward style of play to deal with, am a decent shooter (for my level of competition, anyway), and play smart (but hard) on D.

So there it is. That's my game in a nutshell. I often wonder how many of u actually play this game, so let's find out. I know, I know - none of us have the skills or the height or whatever of the players we're comparing ourselves to; but if Hedo can be a Turkish-MJ, then I can be a shorter, less-skilled Manu. Draftexpress does it all the time: assess ur own skills as a player (in relation to other players on your level - if ur a great shooter for your high school team, pick a great shooter from the NBA) and match them up with NBA talent.

And for the sake of discussion, Superjudge, let's pretend ur hips are fine. We dont wanna hear how ur supposed to be Vince in 5 years or somethin lol

As for the actual thread.

If I had to pick a guy, I'd say my game was very close to Anthony Parkers, when Parker was more role player. I passed a bit more though.

But yes, for good, and for bad, I really saw a lot of myself in his game.... minus 7 inches...hahaha

ur question got me thinking cuz i've never thought about this before. and then after much thought i was surprised at who i came up with. 1) because its actually quite accurate and 2) i'm not a fan of this guy at all
and that guy is jimmer fredette lol
i got average speed, average handles, average finisher at the rim, average defence, but i can hit it from anywhere in the half court. and when my shots are falling it opens up my drive a lot more.
oh and my floaters are money

Tayshaun Prince for me. Lanky, good defender, good shooter, good rebounder, and left handed. People always say my shooting form is just like Ginboli's though.

I always thought AP lacked aggression. Would u say that would be an accurate description of ur game as well? u show more aggression when ur thinkin/talkin about my penis then i ever saw from Parker. Explain.

hahha

yep. that was an issue for me. On offense I was too passive. But i did make some passes that got peeps yelling. Defensively I was quite intense, as is parker.

As for my penis aggression....it cannot be matched!

Barkley.

Round, really not athletic at all but I guarantee I can score on you at will, and slow you on defense.

And I talk, ALOT.

man, I don't see snooch as much as I like to ..... that's what she said.

Barkley was athletic back in the day......

I see myself as a young Milt Palacio.... I can be relentless attacking, imposing my will even, but man do I miss layups like a mother lover. It would be my honour, to be your new step-father.

My spin move is to die for and you best not be reachin else you be eating some fine parquet flooring.

I'm a pure shooter... 6"3 200 lbs so-so athleticism. If athleticism wasn't important and basketball was Hoosiers style I probably could've played D1... I could've played D3 for an average school but decided to just focus on academics, getting drunk and chasing girls. The difference between D3 and D1 is ridiculous... anyone who has played against a D1 guard knows how quick those guys are. Their jukes will make you look silly.

Call me Keith Van Horn! In H.S. my friends and I would drive to Queens to play in parks and that's what people called me lol... essentially any tall, lanky shooter from the NBA, even Dirk.
