I’m not talking about the British term for blokes that play what we in America call Soccer.
I’m talking about a unique style of basketball that I see played by Mexican basketball players here in the LA area.
They play basketball as if they are playing soccer.
They pass a lot.
They don’t dribble very much.
They catch and shoot as fast as possible.
It’s fast paced and fun to watch.
Most of these cats are under 5ft so it’s a trip.
There is often a lot of traveling and double dribbling.
It’s a freestyle fiesta.
I am part Mexican so I know some Spanish.
They talk as much shit to each other as any other b-ball players.
Mostly they scream “PASS!”
Sounds like every other pick up basketball game I have ever played in.
On Sunday night I played three on three with some of these guys.
It was a lot of fun…One heavy set cat was rocking a Kobe Bryant jersey and he played without shoes…
Who needs Jordans right?
