The NBA season gets underway tomorrow when the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Chicago Bulls do battle and all the superstars in the competition will be in action over the next few days.
You can’t help but admire the skills of Lebron James, James Harden and Steph Curry, but we sometimes think that the best basketball action is that which takes place at your local hall every Saturday night.
These amateur Basketball cards are a tribute to all those plodders out there doing their best on the court every Saturday morning, no matter how hungover, injured or uncoordinated they are!
Best white guy in the league
Quick and skilful
Keeps to himself most of the time and is a bit of a grey man.
Loves rap music and mentions Michael Jordan in his g-mail
Cops Juan-on-Juan jokes on a weekly basis
Can go from 0 – Loco in a flash
Screams ‘Kobe’ every shot he takes
Always has the latest pair of Jordans
Not the best, not the worst
Tapes his glasses on when he plays
Crazy about street ball
Best in the team
Emotionally invested – known to cry when his team lose
Could have played Pro-Ball but too lazy
Girlfriend comes to games, sits on her phone the whole time
Thinks he’s better than he is
Never drops the ball due to excessive hair wax on his hands
Shoots 20 threes a game – only lands one
Averages 3 – 4 mins of gametime each week
Leads the half-time talk, which is the same each week
Does his knee halfway through the season
Dirtiest player in the league
Wears Yankees hat everywhere, doesn’t like baseball
Goes through his teammates’ bags when he is on the bench
Tries hard, just isn’t any good
Always has a Gatorade after a game
Has one really good game all season – keeps him motivated
Always getting advice from his dad
