All right, here we go. Let's say you happen to be very good at either basketball, baseball, football or any combinations of them. Who would you play most like? Right now, even though you may not have the same skills, who does your game remind you of the most? This could mean your batting stance, pitching delivery, shooting form, throwing/passing, or just any way you play the game (& whatever else you can think of). For each sport, give a name, or a few, of athlete(s) who you think your game resembles the most & try to give a comment as to how you relate. Thanks. :broadcaster:

*You don't have to answer like I am...I am just not good at explaining these kind of things. :D

Basketball
Mark Jackson-slow but surprising
Larry Bird-shooting style
Jamaal Tinsley-pesky hands on defense

Baseball
Troy Glaus-batting stance/form
John Rocker-pitching form/motion (wild and inconsistent)

Football
Jerome Bettis-running style, slow
Mark Brunell-left handed thrower, not that great but can make some nice plays
New England Patriot DBs-can't keep up, just push/shove at line to slow down receivers, push on back when receivers jump in air to catch in attempt to break up play :D

I try to model my game after several Pacers:

Reggie's outside shooting
Mark Jackson's floater
JO's turnaround (w/a slight variation)

Of course, obviously, I'm not as good at any of them. Must be the lack of athleticism and bad knee. :(

I model my game after Artest completely.

Not to brag, but I am NBA level in several aspects.

Shaq's free-throw shooting.
The ball-handling skillz of Manute Bol.
I distribute the ball like Ricky Davis.
Jon Bender's durability.
The post-up game of Spud Webb.



All that, and I run the fast-break like Greg Ostertag.

I'd like to think I've got a bit of Jeff Foster in me. I'm not very big or strong, but I'm faster than I look. I can't shoot consistently outside of 5 feet, so I try to hang around the rim and go for putbacks. I've also got a decent floater I try to use if I end up with someone smaller guarding me - which I usually do, since I'm almost always one of the worst scorers on my team.

My biggest weakness, outside of shooting: big strong guys setting picks. Gets me almost every time.

More a liability now than ever

You know, this got me to thinking. We ought to have a Pacers Digest 3-on-3 tourney or something. That would be really fun. :cool:

Why don't we have a PD Draft?

All the posters who'd participate would be eligible & then there'd be two captains--You know how it goes.

Interesting thought, Shade.

I'd play.

I'm taller than Earl Boykins and I weigh more than he does. :cool: Not by much on either account however.

This could bring a whole new dimension to this forum.

I would feel bad for the old guys though, us young bucks would just wipe the floor with them :D

As far as who I resemble the most I would say Foster, I love to scrape for the ball like him, and grab those offensive rebounds.

I play Center. My Defence is pretty good and intense, I don't block much, but I alter a lot of shots, have pretty quick hands for a Center and play pretty physical. On offense I have that Rik Smits/Brad Miller type of mid range shot on offense that I like the most and I can knock down pretty consistently. I love and have a real knack for passing the ball to cutting guards and forwards when I have 2 or more defenders around me. My weakeness is absolutely offensive rebounding and receiving and handling those really HAAAARD direct passes from a guard when I move into action in the paint.

Regards,

Mourning :cool:

I used to say, when we only had Haywoode Workman to play PG, that if they could pay me less money to play and I could still turn the ball over just as often.


:devil:

But when I could play (years ago) I patterned my game off Scott Skiles: hard nosed distributor, willing to knock a guy down with my forearm and, although completely undersized, just crazy enough to block-out against a big man.
