sorry guys, JPZ can't do this.. lol I do not live in NYC. Anyway, I'd love to see the results. One team can be new guys another old guys. (not by age, date joined the forum) I'm def. a guard, even though I'm 6'4. I can pop threes all day, but I quit bball since I always got pushed around. But by the 4th quarter I was the only one who could still run around the court
lol I'm more than 3 hours away, and just can't take the effort :P
I'll be back at home in the summer
I'd rather not say, because it would automatically allow anyone to look me up, since I'm still listed as one of the coaches for the team, even though I'm no longer involved. It would also allow my former players to look up the KO site. Trust me, they can do it: I signed up for facebook, and they all tried to add me.
It's a school located in the Manahattan A North division, and we've had a few players actually get scholarships to big schools, though none have become big time college players. Last year, we had a kid get a spot on the Jayhawks.
The way things work, with head coaches, is that they're usually running a team for years, it's their spot, even if, as is sometimes the case, they don't truly do the coaching and instead delegate that to others. In fact, as a HS assistant, many times I've filled in for the real head coach: a long time assistant;
It takes a lot of work to become a coach or assistant, for the PSAL, by the way. I had to take hours of CPR and first aid training, conflict management, etc. Once you get in, though, it's a lot of fun: you become like the head of a family. We've done a couple of halftime shows for the Knicks, battled in the playoffs, played all sorts of teams and eaten at countless restaurants, all over the city. For the players, it's really meaningful, because many of them, though I've had problems with their classroom behavior, don't have a supportive family. Films haven't really done it justice, except for the locker room cursing and the crying.
It definitely can get annoying. Training is required, every so often, by the year, or every other year, etc., which is why I decided not to do it anymore. You have to get AED certified, which involves learning how to use this machine to resuscitate people, every year. They also make you take first aid and CPR, seperately, every year, in addition to other courses. All of them are about 16 hours long. I was going to take ref. classes, for the extra cash: about 50 dollars, per game; but I didn't want to deal with the hassle, because they also want you to take these classes.
If it's your thing, though, you make it happen. It's definitely exciting, gives you a sense of belonging. The older guys, some of them former NBA players, like Charles Smith, some former ABA players, even Theresa Weatherspoon, from the liberty, love to come around, or even serve as coach-for-the-day, because of their love for the game.
sounds cool, thanks for the info, i might get into it when im old( in my 50's ) and retired i may consider coaching in a private league...but still got a long time before i get to that time lol.
so i guessing you know all the rules, you wont be mad strict during the KO game right?....lmao jk
yo, when is this going down? I've been ballin' the last couple of weeks. i'm ready. all you *****z are gettin' destroyed!!!
Plus i would only play if i was guaranteed Kiyaman was on the opposite side so i could beat him and then have to listen to his rational that the Hustle and teamwork of OGKNICKSFAN AND KIYA warrant them recieving 10 milliion dollar extensions.
