re: Your worst pickup basketball stories


I broke my foot by landing on another dudes foot on a rebound. The entire gym stopped playing when they heard the snap. Drove me to the emergency room in the back of a Ford S-10. Like the fricking bed of the truck

When I lived in L.A. I used to play in the Saturday morning pick-up games at The Sports Club L.A. with guys like Shaq, Magic and a lot of other NBA players. Well one game I got stuck guarding Shawn Marion and while it was fun he destroyed me. Luckily we still won because we had Stephon Marbury on our team and he was BY FAR the best pick-up player in all of those games. I've played pick-up games with dozens of NBA players in my life and nobody ran shite like Starbury. Dude was unstoppable!

re: Your worst pickup basketball stories


I took about a eight year hiatus from playing. When I picked it back up, first week I jammed the piss out of my right middle finger, second week I twisted an ankle, and the third week I dove for a loose ball ( I know, I know) and gashed open my eye. Went to the doctor and had to get three stitches. I was wearing an ankle brace too. Nurse told me to hang it up. Of course, I told her no chance, and fourth week, I broke a bone on my left hand ring finger. FML. It's been about a year and I put all that behind me until I just tore a tendon in my right thumb playing. 3-4 weeks I'm out again but frick it; I'll be back in 3-4 weeks.

Ran into the guy who hooked up my cable at the gym and he invited himself into a game with my co workers. He made an arse out of himself and all my boys were pissed at me. I wanted to call him out but I think he was a tard.

re: Your worst pickup basketball stories


I was a camp couselor the summer of my first year out of high school. It was a camp for kids to play baseball, basketball, and football at, and the kids toward the end of the summer wanted to have a BB game of the kids hand picked team vs the counselors. Mind you this is on 9' goals. So we accept, and the kids had mostly each been with two counselors all summer in individual groups, so they didn't realize the beating they were asking for. Well, our team ended up being all baseball players, track people, and a few football guys 17-19, vs kids 14-12. We decided it was best to embarass them thoroughly in front of all the other kids. I mean, it was ridiculous, I don't mean guys were pulling up and hitting threes, it was nothing but alley oops and a dunk contest on our end, we was phi slamma jamma rubbing stink all over them with rib stiggily stonks of double vanilla fonks. There were fricking guys jumping over kids to dunk on them, nuts being dragged on flat tops, 360° carnage, Brick killed a guy, and I think somebody had a trident. We called it at the half because it was forty something to nothing, and the hundreds of kids in the stands were getting rowdy.

Then came the dodgeball. Or battleball, whatever you call it, it was 200 kids vs like 20 of us, with six four square balls going. There was an incident where a pitcher on our team, who ended up pitching for Nicholls, knocked a kid out cold from half way across the gym. Never seen anything like it, he threw that f'er like me throwing a softball, and I've always had a live arm. Anyway, counselors are such dicks. We stopped all games at that point and let them play the rest of the day with what was left of their shattered little dreams.

re: Your worst pickup basketball stories


Very similar to the OP, was playing a game in PE in high school once and at the time I was a little guy. Like shortest kid in my class, scrawny as frick, and could play the point like no white boy should ever been able to at my size. Well, I was on a team playing against a few of the jocks. Starting QB, RB, some LB's and such on the football team and they were douchebags, plus I wasnt exactly popular because I had the worst case of little man syndrome on the planet back then. They kept getting pissed off because I was a lot better at basketball than them and I kept stealing the ball and scoring on them.

So our RB, was driving the opposite side of the lane that I was standing on, and the QB was standing behind me and he pushed me out in front of him, resulting in me getting plowed over like a fricking squirrel on I-65. Brent got pissed because he thought I did it on purpose and rared back and hit me right in the temple with the ball as hard as he could throw it, which was pretty forceful since he was quite the gym rat.

I woke up a few minutes later with the worst headache of my life and he came over and was like, "Yeah, sorry bout that, they told me afterwards that Mark pushed you in front of me." and then just walked off.

fricking jocks....

re: Your worst pickup basketball stories


shite my pants once.




Used to be a sports bar in Fayetteville that had a sandpit volleyball court and some hoops out back so you could ball while you waited for you food.

Was one of our fav. places being under 21, could waste a shite load of time in there.

in a 1v1 game against my best buddy. We always played to 30, 2's and 3's. I get up huge on him, I'm sinking everything. I get up 24-6, the rumble in my belly began. rumble, rumble; oh no!!!

I'm like I can get through this, I'm on fire tonight. Thinking 2 more 3's and I'm home free; then he starts his comeback. 24-6, 24-10, 24-13, 24-17, I'm in trouble. The fear of crapping myself got in my head, I was shooting brick city.

rumble, rumble, rumble...

at 24-24 I hit a bankshot 3 to go up 27-24. We had been laughing about my belly hurting so he started going inside and elbow shoting me in the gut, fricker. He gets up 28-27, I fake him on a pump fake and hit this sideways jumping runner-ish board shot 3 for the win, when I landed it happened. I just kept running to the bathroom didn't break stride. I was wearing the canary yellow polo shorts that had to get tossed. I did the shirt to cover your arse trick and walked out of the place with no shirt and sweaty as hell, gave the waitress $40 as I walked out to stares of bewilderment of the other customers.

That's the worst for me. Buddies from college that I'd bring back home to the Sunday pick up game at my old HS sometimes caused issues, but never any fisticuffs.

This almost happened to me once. I got lucky and was able to finish the game, crawl in the back of my truck and told my GF to drive me to the gas station right fricking now and avoid pot holes like they were land mines, because thats exactly what they were gonna be if she hit one.

i used to go to high school with this kid, maybe you've heard of him...michael friggin jordan. as the tale goes, he could barely make his high school basketball team. one day in confidence he told me "link mayne, i'm this close to quitting the team. all i do is practice and practice, but my arse just rides the bench..." i looked at him and i said "mike (i called him mike for short), don't give up. one day jordan will be a household name. i bet ya $20 if you stick with it, you'll be startin' by next season." and that's the true story of how michael jordan became a gambling addict.

welcome back, 480 !!


Again, these were the days of my early-mid 20s. It wasn't like they invited me it anything. It was a very expensive health club, by far the best in L.A., and they all played there on Saturday morning. I was always the worst player but I went ever Saturday for about a year. Everyone else there was old and rich and scared to play. I didn't care if I got schooled every game, I always looked forward to it.
