Played 5 yrs of NCAA Division 1 basketball.

I'm a 6'5" white boy that could hit his head on the rim, and touch the top of the square on the backboard. Played shooting guard. Use to spend my summers playing pick up games with the Spurs.

Could I dunk? Yep, in all sorts of ways.

I don't even think I could touch the rim now!!

I love playing bball for fun. Just did a few weeks ago for the first time in a long time and I miss it.

I suck so I never made the high school team. But freshman year the coach liked my attitude enough he allowed me to be part of the team by practicing and working out with the team. That was fun as hell. Plus I was friends with everyone on the team.

I used to play a lot but stopped a long time ago. I'll probably pick it up again in the future. It's a fun sport no doubt.

PS- I cant dunk though. lol I can run the rim and such but I cant jump high enough to dunk it.

*sigh* Used to play weekly, but after tearing my ACL, MCL, and medial and lateral meniscii... and then breaking my right ankle's medial and lateral malleoli in a basketball comeback 16 months ago, I'm just about retired.

Can't dunk, but in high school (over 20 years ago), used to be able to grab rim, though I'm 5'7"... I'd be lucky to grab the net now LOL...

Exactly!! I go play and my brain says "do this", and my body says, "screw off".

I liked Michael Jordan's quote, he said, "when you get older and play basketball, you can still jump like you always have, but you really worry more about landing".

Where did you play?

I played at Baylor.

It looks like they're really headed in the right direction, nice SI article about it last week. Pretty remarkable considering the recent state of the program.

They've put a lot of money into the program. Getting ready to so the same thing with football.

It's a beautiful school.

I didn't see the article, I need to get that.

I've never even been to Texas, but I'll take your word for it!
Look for the February 4, 2008 issue, with Strahan and Brady on the cover.

I'm 6'1 and I used to be able to dunk (extra weight really affects my hops). Seems like thats pretty normal if you're white or black but if you're asian thats pretty decent athleticism.
