I try to play basketball twice a week with some great guys. Of course, I am no expert but do see that some of the guys have some real talent.
The team I generally play on consists of Dennis, Max, Ivan and me. I have been watching Dennis and Max play off and on for 3 years. Both are really good. Dennis played competitive BB while in school. He stands about 5′ 7″, not especially tall for BB, but what he lacks in height he makes up in speed.
Wow, is he quick. He and Max have been playing BB together for some time. They really do compliment each other well.
Max is tall and is a good shot blocker and rebounder. Of course, with his height he plays center a lot and isn’t afraid to take the ball inside on offense.
Well, I want to say that for some reason, the last few times we have played haven’t been that great. We haven’t been playing as a team. We had some great strategy conversations last night and got together and won 4 games in a row last night!
Late in the evening, I commented to Max that winning sure beats losing… 🙂 But, to be honest the goal for me is mostly to have some down time fun and get some exercise… In that, I guess I really am winning!
