  • Does anyone else have a mild interest/fascination for basketball? I'm not brilliant but I like to throw a ball about everynow and then.

    Anybody else want to meet up to shoot some hoops and have a laugh?

  • I play at Brick lane some saturdays with a bunch of american guys. All our welcome.

  • Is that the same courst that they play polo on at the top of Brick Lane?

  • Ive been insanely looking for my ball for the past couple of days, dissapeared - frustrating. keep going past great courts and want to play !

  • I picked up a half decent Nike Baller ball for less than a fiver at Sports world (or whatever it's called these days!). Where abouts are you? I'm near Holloway Road tube and the aren't that many courts near me other than really dodgy ones that I won't go to on my own!

  • Thumbs up! I've got a couple of pretty new bballs that need a bit of air. You vring the pump and needle...

  • Best court is 2 mins from Kings Cross... I'll find a drop pin an link later. I've got a nice wilson and a VERY nice Baden BBL league ball :)

  • Cool. I've taken to playing at lunch times at the moment. I work in Southwark and there's a court very near to Borough tube that I use. If anyone else is interested then it would be good to have some company. I can take lunch whenever, so I'll come out as others do.

  • New mens season starts on Tuesday! Bring it!

  • I used to follow basketball quite a lot (no longer really interested, just look up NBA results every now and then) and I've always enjoyed throwing the ball at the basket, but as I never even mastered the rudiments of any other aspect of the game, that's where it remained. No idea if I'd still be any use as a spot-up shooter. ;)

  • I love the game. Used to go and watch the Sonics play quite a bit when i was stateside. RIP Sonics.

  • Blimey, I never realised that that had come true and they had moved. Is the franchise now in Oklahoma City?

  • Yep. Oklahoma Thunder. Didn't do too well this season. Bottom of their division.....

  • I play at Brick lane some saturdays with a bunch of american guys. All our welcome.

    what time on saturdays?

    Cool. I've taken to playing at lunch times at the moment. I work in Southwark and there's a court very near to Borough tube that I use. If anyone else is interested then it would be good to have some company. I can take lunch whenever, so I'll come out as others do.

    cool. might drop by sometime next week.

    which season? do you play in the anzsac league? played for a couple of seasons there

  • which season? do you play in the anzsac league? played for a couple of seasons there

    Yep... Anzsac.

    I think its at Elephant and Castle this season instead of Stratford. E&C court is a weird surface - bad on the joints.

  • I get there normally around 11am and there are normally a few people there. Though this is weather dependant.

    Basketball used to be my life and even thought of pursuing a career in it. I got flown over twice to the Nike Elite Basketball camps when I was 15/16 but I got hit by a car when I was 17 which essentially destroyed my left leg and my hopes of NBA glory!

  • well that sucks. i hope u can still enjoy it even if u can't do it professionally. im in no way professional and probably wouldn't even be any good in an amateur team, but i enjoy hanging with mates shooting some hoops or having a game.

  • I sometimes play in the park next to bethnal green station on weekends. There are usually enough people there to play 3on3 or 4on4 (halfcourt -street).

  • right lets start a group going. Email benjamin [dot] nickolls [at] gmail [dot] com and I'll add to a list.

  • sounds good. where are these courts near kings cross? are they outdoor and free? best type are the free type!

  • right sorry for the delay but i only got two emails about this... I'm going to put a thread up for the LFGSS bball team. If we get/are good enough we can play in the London leagues. However I imagine people would prefer a bounce-about rather than anything serious, but it's a possibility.

  • Great idea Benjam, apart from you've tried to set it up on TrixieDix night :-( Is there any chance thursday might work better?!

  • thursday it is..

  • Oh, OK. I didn't mean to make you change it just for me! Also, I don't want to cause trouble for those who want to go to Wests. Other days could work too.
