Question for Cornrowers...not Heat vs. Pacers related.

I'm up and I'm bored. I went to the playground with my kids today and since my dad and sister were out here visiting, I was, for once, able to go to the court and shoot some hoops....and it was not pretty. I did play a quick half court game against some teenagers and had a really good time (they were good...very solid shooters and knew where their spots were).

I was surprised at how effective I was just doing the little things. My team lost, but we didn't have the best players...it was 12-10 final (by ones). I definitely felt like the Lou Amundson/Hansbrough of the game. I was bigger/older than all of them, but WAAAY slower. Just came up with some nice hustle plays, good boards, a couple steals, a block, a save on the out of bounds line....set some killer picks, a couple nice assists. I was like 2-5...2 misses were layups and the other was like a 5 foot jumper in front of the unforgiving iron backboard/double rim....but it was fun.

I'm 33 and probably haven't played in a game, even a pick-up game, in over a year. Probably haven't played on a regular basis in a decade-and-a-half. It was really fun, but....good gracious was I feeling slow. And my feet/ankles are really sore and I have blisters....visible blisters on my feet (ill-fitting running shoes WERE worn)....and my chest hurt and I kind of tasted copper after the game....which worried me a bit.

So, I was just curious what type of real life involvement our current Cornrowers have on the court over the past few months/years.
