Video Entry: Hoop Dreams

Your guy, Jarrod, guarding Li’Za

My history with basketball is not a pretty one.

In fifth grade I played in a recreation league and my team had one of the worst records that year. It was then that I learned what a five second violation was as the referees would call them on me for standing around and not moving.

In high school, during gym class, I pulled a groin muscle while trying to patent what I was then calling “The Split Shot.” (It is what it sounds like.) In case you were wondering, “The Split Shot” has yet to find its way into an NBA regulation game.

Fast forward to a few weeks back and I figured that the third try would be the charm. I called on former WNBA player, Li’Za Donnell, to turn my hoop dreams into reality.

Could I rewrite the Basketball chapter in my life? Check out the video below and judge for yourself ;-)
