Summer Basketball Recruitment

Posted by Orrin Woodward on September 2, 2013

In preparation for the LIFE Leadership PC Primer and above basketball wars next year, I had to do a quick post on this humorous video, sent to me by my friend Adam, on pickup basketball game stereotypes. What’s so funny about this video is how true it is. I know most of these stereotypes have been true of me on given days. Just ask the guys I played with this summer. 🙂 In any event, its important to laugh at yourself and the foibles we all have so we don’t take ourselves too seriously while taking what we do very seriously. This is truly a LOL video!

I pray everyone has a happy, safe, and fun Labor Day.

    That was super funny. As a player in the basketball games this summer, I agree that this video had some truth to it. I laughed out loud a couple times. I won’t say which guys showed up at the court during our games, but some of them did show up. Thanks for the funny video.

    This was really good. I haven’t played much sports, but I have seen these people in other walks of life. This was a very good visual for us visual people to see ourselves (really myself) and now using the tools available in our system to be the winner we were meant to be. Thank you for sharing this.

    They left the wrestler guy out, but he’s probably not too dissimilar to the football guy. 🙂 I lean toward that guy in basketball.
