Some on screwed with it here one that's important. Basketball player math teacher or anyone else.

When I was playing basketball and doing those moves I was 35. I went out for wrestling in high school to avoid the basketball coach.

As a senior I stood under the basketball rim. I jumped up and the rim some where on my wrist. I was 5'11". I took one try at a stuff and the bottom about 1 1/2 hit the rim.

Enough of that.

So besides those moves what really had me electric.

When every I got double teamed I dished the ball off to my 5' 4" wife. Who would fire the ball up from outside.

I smiled from the first time. She made an high percentage of the shots. Oh why? Shut up she's on a roll.

It was junior high move in with the ball or pass the ball to get the shot. I argued I can hit 2/3 from 2 feet behind the circle with my jumper.(older court)

I didn't tell anyone but it was all I could do to get the ball there that way. No over excited half way up the backboard shot. I could just get it there.

Best wishes Michael Jordan
