Pickup basketball stereotypes…

I have played against every one of these guys! lol

And I think many of them apply to nearly every sport out there.

      You know, I’m kind of a mix. I’m the guy who doesn’t practice enough before hand (it’s not my sport), gets super competitive nonetheless during it, talks lots of trash, usually plays marginal, sometimes eeks out a miracle shot at the end, and then goes on a practicing streak afterward for several weeks, until I remember this isn’t what I want/need to actually get good at! lol

      The football player?! (Except you throw elbows, knees to the balls, and a hard right hook if no one’s looking?)

        Hah! – no.
        Here’s a hint…growing up, my favorite team was the Lakers – the Minneapolis Lakers.
        I’ve got a two handed set shot that won’t quit.
