Which player are you?
I played every day at the park for years.... I have specific people in mind for every last one of them.
I am not sure I am any of those guys. I am the "5' 9" white guy who doesn't get picked until people I have played with are there" guy. My best friend is absolutely the "tall guy who only shoots threes" guy though. While he isn't really tall, he is 6' 4" and can dunk. He tries to play the same game that I play. A guy I used to be really good friends with was absolutely "accessories guy". Headband, wrist bands, arm warmer thingy.
I suck at basketball. Well actually im really good at horse. But when it comes to basketball and guys playing D on you. Not so much. But I went to high school with a guy who wore about 6 arm bands, a leg band and a head band. Yes the term I would use would be ******. Needless to say he got cut and all his bands didnt improve his game. I know, I was just as surprised as you.
I didn't see myself and where is "Don't Leave that Guy" guy? If I go to a place I've played before as soon as I walk on the court there is at least one dude on the other team saying to whoever is guarding me "You can't leave him. No, seriously don't leave him..at all." It's very annoying, why not let him find out for himself? Now I've got "Football Guy" draped on me for the length of the court trying to figure out what flavor of gum I am. And on my team "My Bad" is my badding us to being down by 6 in a 12pt game and I'm turning into "Rager" until "Football Guy" turns his head for a second and I become "The Punisher" because if you leave me for a second I will punish you.
I guess I'm "Full of Himself Because he's good at Pickup Basketball" guy.
Where is the "sweats way to much& guards entirely too close" guy? He always checks me.
I agree on the "Way too sweaty guy". I have a friend for whom we bring extra shirts and an egg timer. When it goes off, he has to change. He is a walking swamp.
I'm "No you guys go ahead and play, I'm going to have a beer" guy. Basketball was never my sport. Soccer and baseball please.
This is from 2007. Cincinnati comedian Josh Sneed stars in it.
The best line I ever heard at a pick up game, "You're taking away from my points." Just classic.
I got a couple laughs and a lot of stares. I don't know if Nate came up with that line or if he heard if from somewhere else, but I've used it a few times and it always makes me laugh.
