GUYS! Who is your NBA comparison?

For me personally, I think its Carl Landry. I have a stock build and and play like an undersized PF. I generally stay inside and score by either creating space wiht my build, overpowering the defender, or a variety of spin moves, but my midrange game is fairly solid (up to the elbow area) is fairly solid too. I'm not a GREAT defensive player by any means, but I'll body up on guys and challenge their shots. I also don't get pushed around too easily :) I LOVE the competition and I like to consider myself a fierce competitor :)

I always considered myself to be a Jalen Rose-type.

Growing up in elementary school, I hit my initial growth spurt pretty early. I think I was like 5'2 in 4th Grade, one of the taller kids on the team. I wanted to play Point Guard, because my buddy on the team was a Center and I could always count on him to get good position for an easy bounce pass and a layup. We had a very good Mark Jackson-to-Dale Davis-type Chemistry. But the coaches wanted me to play SF. I hated it. All I did was just stand out on the wing and pray that a shot came to me. And the kid they had playing PG couldn't drive, handle, or shoot anywhere NEAR as good as I could, he was just smaller (isn't that how it always goes? heh). Plus, like Jalen, I'm left-handed. As I got older, they kept sticking me at Forward, even though I always wanted to play Guard. I have always felt like a PG. I could careless how many shots I get. If I have an open look I'll take it. But I'm much more concerned with finding the proper mismatch and exploiting that, or having our best shooter run off a screen and get open so i can hit them in stride for a nice jumpshot or cut inside for an easy layup.

When I was skinny people compared me to Ginobili, I am left handed and latino, when I am in shape I do run up and down and I also get to make some crazy shots :)

Oh yeah I used to do a "Fun Question Friday" thread. I stopped after about 4 weeks, I got tired of doing them and once I didn't like doing them anymore I stopped. What is the point in doing a Fun Question Friday thread if it stopped being fun

I always thought of myself as Billy Keller without the speed, shooting ability, or defense.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar fought Bruce Lee in Game of Death. That's close enough, right? lol

Sounds like they are playing a video game, halo reach or call of duty or something, and Cole is killing BRush.

Back in the day my friends I played against used to call me "Caucasian Barkley"
because of how I would use my caboose to knock them out of the way to
clear space.

10 years ago my courtmates said I was a replica of Jamaal Wilkes.

Now I'm probably like the post-surgery Dunleavy.

First, that video with Bruce Lee and Kareem is .... great? I never realized they had Lee and Kareem do all the sound effects for Tekken.


Second, my game used to be like Mark Jackson's. I'd always play point, make some darn good passes, and hit a few shots. Now, I'm pretty sure my game is like Antoine Walker...stand around and chuck shots until a couple go in.

There's a good reason I watch basketball on TV now. LoL
