Incredibly large.
Co-signed on your accomplishments. Yet you are like the Alonzo Mourning of our group. And undersized big man who's crazy aggressive and protects the basket at all costs. But that also mean when you get posterized its just that much more memorable. And you my friend ... have been posterized

You'll get some good run from 2-4, might even get some varsity guys showing up. Maybe I'll see you there.
Let me know if you're going any day but monday or wednesday.

I was expecting at least one "Mad Bomber" story from you Saucer...

My one moment of basketball glory was pulling off one of Hakeem's old moves down low... fake right, fake left go back right with a turnaround fadeaway jumper that kissed off the high glass and in.

One of the only baskets that I've ever made in my life (in a real game).

We were down by 20 during a elementary school game in grade 8 and my coach put me on with the rest of the scrubs so we can get experience because it was already 4th quarter so nobody was expecting me to do anything. So when one of the guards missed a 3 pointer I ran up and did a two handed putback dunk and shocked the whole school.

Low net however, I was like 5'8 back then and the net was at least 8-9 feet, felt good though.

I love showing up clowns who think theyre the shit and just crush them at the PG position because Im white and they think I cant play. And because theyre douchebags in general.

Last time it happened was the last time I played outside, one of those shout out instruction types(BOX OUT!!! BOARD!!! PICK FOR HIM THERE!!! YOU SHOULDA ROTATED!!! ETC) was on the other team and was basically hugging me when he was playing 'defence'. I elbowed him a couple times just to get him off me and we almost got into it. I suggested he run about 50 steps left to where the football field was because he clearly didnt understand we were playing basketball and he didnt like that too much.

The game was up to 21(count 3s as 2s) and I must have scored 17 of those 21 that game. He kept yelling 'board' everytime I shot it in his grill and I just gave him the deathstare after every shot I cashed on him.

Another proud moment, maybe my proudest, was in a league game, I think it was the 3rd round, and the game was in OT and I hit the only shot late in the game with like 40 seconds left to win it. I didnt take many shots that game and they played me for the pass on the pick and roll, I drifted to my left, waited for the big to go back to my pick man, and J'd it for the winner.

My only other near death experience happened when playing basketball on the grade 6 team. I was going to the rim and my friend hit me in mid air and I went hard into the post holding up the entire basket. I still remember my life flashing before my eyes. I didnt believe that whole shtick of that happening before you die until it happened to me, luckily I woke up 2 minutes after.

I was playing in a high school tournament when I was in Grade 11 down in Seattle and we were getting crushed by that American team by 30-35 points. The players on there team were like 6'3" - 6'9" and we were getting embarrassingly dunked on. So the coach put me on after half-time(I was a bench player on my team which was composed of grades 11 and 12) and when I just happened to be under the basket on defense and I ended up getting 3 big blocks in a row on 3 players who were much bigger then me and the crowd and my bench just went berserk.
