    Default What NBA player do you most resemble?

    This applies to measurements (height, weight), game skills, etc.

    If you would compare yourself to any NBA player(s), who would it be?

    Reggie Miller. I'm short, but skinny. And I like to run around all the time. A LOT.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    I don't think your gonna find anyone hear who literally matches up in height/weight with NBA players; they're all big guys.

    As for who's game?

    Uhh,

    Again, if anyone was actually comparable, they'd be IN the NBA, not talking about it here.

    I guess I'd be Foster. You don't want me to shoot it, but if I'm wide open I'll give it a shot. I'd just put my effort into fundamentals, defense, and rebounding.

    From a skill level I always thought Steve Kerr. The only thing I was really good at was shooting - but I was very good.

    Of course I'm sure that based on athleticism & a bunch of other things Steve was about 4 levels above me.

    If you're going by height, I'm guessing you'll come up with a lot of Spud Webbs's, Michael Adams's, Calvin Murphys, A.I.'s, Earl Boykins's, Speedy Claxtons's and T.J. Fords.....

    As a kid, I always wanted to play like Reggie. As I've gotten a little older, I think I'm a little like Jon Bender. Tall and skinny, can shoot from all over, and can jump [though I haven't been in the gym as much as usual, so not like I used to be able to]

    Hmmm ... my offensive interior movements aren't too fabulous, but I have a good shot from very short to the outer end of midrange, particularly my turn around and spot up jumpers are ... well below abysmal for NBA-level , but pretty good otherways. I dont take a lot of shots in games, but the ones I do take are either exactly the shots I like to take (turn around, spot up jumpers) or high percentage shots near the board.
    I'm a phisically strong player at an average height for my position and like playing physical defense, I don't block a lot of shots, and I'm an average rebounder for the C-spot, but I do alter a lot of shots and like playing helpdefense a lot. My primary position is C, but I can play limited in a (P)F role.
    My passing is decent, but should be better in the paint, which is what I will be working on a little more.

    Ok, I have no idea, so someone who do I compare with most??? (Here come the Muresan comparisons!!! ).

    Like hicks said no one really matches up quite like the NBA players, but compared to the guys in the league I play in, I view my game like a Mike Bibby. I run the point, hit tons of jumpers, soft on D, can pass, and just barely enough handles to run the point.

    Austin Croshere. No doubt in my mind.

    Maybe not in height - but in weight and age I resemble the Pacer bench a lot.

    I look most like Brian Cardinal. As for skills, hmmm, I've probably got Pollard's hands.

    40 years and 70 pounds ago, I resembled a 3" shorter Fred Jones. Small hands kept me from controlling a basketball but I could jam the hell out of a volleyball.

    I learned how to play when I was bigger than everyone else. Now I've got a shooting guard's body with a center's mentality. I do have one mean hook though.

    Really, I think I'm most like Croshere. (A few years ago I would have hated to admit that...) but I hustle, always go for the boards, play above average defense, and can hit an outside shot if it's in one of my sweet spots...

    I'd agree with Mike Bibby when I used to play basketball a lot, but now I seem to look closer to Oliver Miller as well. ed:
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."
