Post by: miDnIghtEr20C on September 26, 2009, 07:07:57 PM
i will be posting some pics of my basketball team that plays in a league called, fast action basketball.  our team is called the midnighters and we our pretty good.  usually finish first or second.  the first couple pics are of me, but i will post more of my teammates and i will post are stats of some of our seasons.       sorry.. just reliving some old glory days.. ;)

now, for those of you who are into this kind of thing, here's some stats for you.  i know that they might be hard to see, but i scanned them from the original source.   snooprock, anyone else into sports, let me know what you think.   each season is 10 games long.   stats are from "fast action basketball"   these are my stats for like 9 seasons in a row.   some good games, some bad games.

ps... the game that i dunked on that guy in the video .... that was season 7...  where it says game 51.   and no... nobody recorded our games in season 5.  that's why that's missing.
we played in a 6' 5" an under leauge just so everyone knows.   enjoy..

I used to be in a couple of leagues/tourneys for soccer and hockey. In high school I wrestled and missed playing soccer because of injury that put me out of all major sports competitions for awhile (torn LCL, torn MCL, partial tear ACL, 80% meniscus tear). The worst part is I missed out on a wrestling scholarship to Penn State, one of the top schools for this. They were scouting one of my teammates and the guy I wrestled (I filled in in my Frosh year for Varsity match since my weight class Varsity guy was sick). 10-0 Frosh record, wrestled 2 matches JV (1-1) and 1 Varsity (0-1), never was pinned and losses came by only 1 point.

Hockey wasn't serious in my area (unless you do ice hockey, pay mad money for ice rental and practice at 5-6am lol) but in the roller leagues I played in I was usually goalie and went 1 season 7 game straight shutout in a high scoring league. At most they had 2 straight shutouts so 7 was unheard of. Soccer is all over the place... when younger I was striker or winger, and as I got older, slower, fatter, I dropped to mid and eventually my natural position as defender (CB, RCB, RB mainly). I only play soccer every now and again, even in this cold ass tristate weather we do indoor turf but I'm way past my prime lol

fuck, i hear that!       my new years resolution is to get back into some good basketball shape, and to dunk it again this year.        i didn't dunk it at all for all of 2009... i couldn't even do it just messing around... and i dunked it once in 2008.

I WILL DUNK AGAIN.. for my own peace of mind.

Good luck on dunking man. I'll never be as good in net as I was when I was younger, never have the speed, stamina, flexibility, quickness and skill like I did for soccer or wrestling when I was younger. I just accept it though lol

so these are all me... enjoy!    i used to be so good!

A nice little move I had back in the day...   Coming down with the left hand, put the ball between the leg, but back to the same left hand.... then a quick behind the back to the right hand as i juke over to the right and finish with the layup.   

Nice!

uncle rico over and out!

Shit i havent been able to dunk since High school, ive never much cared about doing it. Although i would love for my Achillies to heal good and get back in shape enough to do it again. Not so much for the sake of being able to do it but just so i know im in great shape again.


Mid from those stats it looks like you need some Free throw practice, i never have and never will understand how some people can be good shooters and be worse at making wide open free throws than jumpers.


I once went 33/33 from the line in our school alumni kept getting klobbered  and couldnt hit a shot because it was a back to back game and i had just played 40 minutes, but still never miss my free throws. Im good for 9/10 or better every time.

God right now though i would love to be able to play in some summer 3 on 3 tourneys but thats not gonna happen, probally wont get to play in my rec league this year either.

i've never had the concentration for free throws.    but i will tell you this... i did have bad free throw games, but i did hit free throws that i needed to.         i did have 1 game i can remember blowing it at the line and having a chance to win... but ya, my free throws pct is sucky.  

DAMN YOU FOR ONLY TAKING A SHOT AT THAT ONE!!!   :-[   :D

but that's ok... if that's the only thing you could see bad in those stats (besides a lot of shooting, but when you're the teams shooter, you have to shoot!), then i don't mind.  ;)        

oh, and i never played high school ball or anything...  one year, sophomore year i sat the bench, and said fuck that.      i'm a "street baller", and you know we don't hit our free throws.  ;)   but i guarantee you... GUARANTEE YOU , that each game you see me play in.... at least 1 time you'd say DAMN!  How'd he do that?  Hence, the nickname that my friends gave me.  "How'd he do that"

Check this game out when you're bored and tired... first half we suck ass.. I'm number 25 in black.   We sucked hard in the first half... we start of the second half down by 19.... i score 2 points in the first.... 27 points in the second half.   we end up coming back and winning by 1 at the end of the game... fun times.   reminded me of the Dallas game last night, subtract about 98% of the talent.  :)

Post by: itputdalotion0n on May 24, 2011, 07:52:54 PM
Im the team shooter also but i cant remember the last time i shot over 20 times god thats alot. But i have a player on my team who probally does take that many shots a game and i always end up with more points on like half his shots. Cause he just fires away and im a real high percentage shooter and also dominate inside so that helps keep the shots down.

But i like to keep everyone involved as long as we are winning i ussually will just rebound and play D until a team gets close and then i take over to pull ways and then let everyone else shoot again.

Besides its if i didnt everyoen would be pissed because the other guy already shoots so damn much  no one would get to shoot.

Post by: itputdalotion0n on May 24, 2011, 07:54:50 PM
I have a Hustle-D guy i have on my team man hes all over the place on rebounds but he arks  every free throw up really high like your floater just to be a smart ass it cracks me up. He hits about %50 to which isnt bad for as high as he shoots it up. But i get mad at him cause i cant stand watching people miss free throws, thats a big pet peeve of mine. Free points take the fuckers.

Post by: miDnIghtEr20C on May 24, 2011, 09:08:06 PM
ya, i had a nice 5 seasons straight of great shooting for the amount of shots i took a game... 1 season wasn't taped though... my buddy was gone for the season...

93/187
(49.7%)

85/165
(51.5%)

94/195

you guys are hardcore on taping that shit and keeping stats. Hell we just play, the refs are so bad in our league and fights break out all the time.

Had a buddy try to break up a fight this year and a thug comes running off the bench and blind sided him broke his jaw. There was a Boys and Girls club in the Recreational league and they get in fights every game, go figure.

Yea around 50% for as many times as youve shot some games is pretty good.

I would love to play in a league with a good team. I played in a few but the teams I played for were never able to play well inside. I don't know why because we light it up outside. Once we get inside half of us can't shoot anymore. We need to play again miD. Hit me up sometime.

Well, Youtube has been taking down my first Clip Shows made because of music copyright bullshit... anyways, i got done making a new clip show from a season back in 2003... used my own music that i made this time so they can't say shit.. it's the cann man band.. my band covers this time.. so fuck em!

anyways... was finally able to figure out the movie player on my computer, and make clips from each game, and splice it all together...
 check out the 12:40 mark.. i get stuffed on a break away, and this dude talking so much shit when he does it, their whole team yelling at me, and the next play down i stuff their guy even worse,, it's awesome
 i still think my shot was goal tended though.. you'll see.     ps.. i'm number 25.  surfinhb from the site is number 6 at the start of the video, and then number 40 by then end.    and Lotion, i know you'd love to have me on your team running the fast break.   i loved breaking.   my specialty.

When are you usually free? We should ball up sometime. I don't know if I will be playing for a little bit though as I think I fractured my top knuckle on my right pinky. Jammed it on a pass when I was ballin last night.
