    Default Playing at BLF

    I was lucky enough to play some pick-up ball at BLF this last Saturday before the Celtics game. Hammer and Rails (Purdue site) set up a group to hopefully see JJ and E'Twaun, and since we sold over 200 tickets we got court time. It was a fantastic experience, and man is that court big! I never had any NBA dreams, but if I did they'd be gone now.

    As many of you know, Saturday night JaJuan Johnson and E`Twaun Moore came back home on Saturday to dominate the Pacers sit the bench as the Celtics earned an impressive win over the Pacers. Earlier in the day, however, the real game happened, as the Hammer & Rails crew took over the court at Bankers Life Fieldhouse for two hours. It was an impressive exhibition of athleticism that will certainly lead to some ten-day contracts. Among the highlights:

    An NBA range game-winning three from me in the first game (that hit every part of the rim and most of the backboard before rattling home).
    Boilerdowd had a fantastic up and under move before bricking the layup.
    We actually had someone who could dunk, but I prevented it by getting back on defense (praying I wouldn't get postered on defense).
    The NBA range threes didn't go as horribly as I thought they would, and some had some surprising range.

    So, here are some photos from the day, as well as the video again all after the Jump.

    (Special thanks to Eric Krueger's mom Teresa for taking the stills: )

    There are a few more images and an exciting video on the link too. It was definitely a great experience, thanks to Travis and the Pacers for setting this up!

    Ha, nope. He was a really cool guy. It was a lot of fun, but I definitely wasn't prepared for how big it is out there. It's crazy to think about how guys like LeBron and Rose get down the court so quick.
