Played about 6 hours of basketball. One of my favorite days, I got to run point gaurd, went like 7-2 over those hours. I have a ridiculous ability to get into the lane and find the open man and finish strong at the rim with the floater. I didnt even score that much, In one game I had like 10 assists. It was just so much fun to play that way. Needless to say I played with white folks.
Played 4 games of hoop today. First game I scored about 3 points, had a couple of steals and assists but we lost 13-10. My team was over-matched from the start and when you’re playing with a 50+ year old man you’re probably not going to win. Regardless, I got picked up ont he next game and we won 3 straight. I had a couple of three pointers including a long one. I think the fact that I have stopped lifting as heavily as before has really helped my jumper. In the last game I had a sick jab step drive and finish at the basket. I don’t think I’ve been able to do that since like the 7th grade. I did twist my knee in the last game and my ankles feel like crap. I am getting too old to be playing that hard. Going to have to learn how to pace myself. I wore my all white Jordan 4′s. For some reason I hate balling in these shoes. I have the same pair in cool gray and I much prefer to ball in those than in these.
Went to the gym and probably played the best games I have played in a while. I don’t think its a coincidence that my jumper has improves since I have gone to a lighter lifting routine. In the first game. We lost 16-15. But I had 7 points including 4-4 from 3 point land, and a couple of floaters in the lane. A few steals, but my defense was overall atrocious. In the second game I had 3 points, a couple of boards and like 5 assists. Had a nice drive to the basket and strong finish. Last game I had 4 points 4 boards and 3 steals. Hopefully, I can build on this and get more confidence in my jumper.
I played a game of 21 before the 3 5 on 5 games and I hit a couple of shots I haven’t hit since Boys and Girls Club and 13-U AAU. Including the fadeaway and the hesitation drive and finish with the left hand.
I wore my Jordan XII Taxi’s -my favorite hooping shoes ever.
