U CAN'T GUARD ME. 2013-2014 


We've gone back about twenty years and we've ranked 
and listed the many ballplayers that have participated 
in www.NYDLBALL.com events and competitions.  
Are you on this list?  How did we rank the players? 
We relied on "The Four Basic Categories of Sports Science" to help us develop the 
following formula for the proper evaluation and ranking of NYDLBALL players.


The four categories are
 1-[A.C.E]. Age/Conditioning/Experience 
2-[RINGS] The number of NYDLBALL Championships 
or other Competitive Titles
3-[S.H.O.W.] Style of Play / Height / Offense / Weight
4-[I.Q.] Basketball I.Q. / Knowledge of the game
** Actually...When in doubt...We flipped a coin.

Shoe of Choice:   Jordan Flight, Hyper Fuse, KD Force

NYDLBALL SCOUTING REPORT:  Joy Drama is one of the young talents in Ghana
that you are sure to hear about in the future.  Good ball handler who can pass and defend
well.  As the years go by and he develops he will create many problems for opposing teams.
Quick as lightening, great balance and court presence.  Can hit the mid-range jumper and
is a great defender in the open court or in the paint.  Fearless to the basket and is a solid
presence on offense and defense.  Can rebound extremely well for a six foot player.  He
can talk trash with the best of them, but he prefers to play hard and get "W's" and not be
distracted with chatter.
 Weak Spots: Experience....Drama lacks experience and sometimes older, veteran
players will find ways to challenge his obvious athletic advantage.   As the years go by
he can only get better.

Shoe of Choice: Nike Alpha Flights

NYDLBALL Scouting Report: Shooter with great range and consistency...Can also
handle the ball well and has a great understanding of the game.  Can get to the basket and
dish, but his biggest threat is at the catch and shoot position.  At his best you can wrap an
offense around him and you can't go wrong.  Most dangerous from right corner baseline...
very comfortable  beyond the 3 point line and is not afraid to shoot the last shot of the
game.  Weak-Spot: Like most true shooters, he lacks Defensive intensity...Knows how
to hide this pretty well, but in situations against other shooter/scorers can be a liability.  
Conditioning can be a factor and Father Time is Knocking at the door.

NYDLBALL Scouting Report: Basicly, a scorer who gets the job done

in bundles.  has the capacity to carry a team on his shoulders.  Can 
rebound, shoot and defend larger and faster opponents.  Above average 
basketball IQ and knows how to get to the bucket.  Can hit the twenty to 
twenty five footer with consistency. Pay Attention...If he catches you 
sleeping the game is over.

Weak-Spot:  Guarding in the open court near the three point line is not
one of his strengths...Not the fastest, not the slowest....Conditioning

Shoe of Choice: Nike

NYDLBALL Scouting Report: A scoring guard who can score in bunches.
Good ball handler that can dance and get to the rack with relative ease....Prefers
to shoot from the perimeter and is basketball wise beyond his years.  Can
create match-up problems for opposing teams.  He is usually in great shape,
and takes these competitions quite seriously.  Usually when they make the
defensive adjustments to guard him on the perimeter he then begins to drive and
kick...No cancel the kick he's probably going to shoot it.   A good perimeter
shooter, who will eventually attack the rack. Don't be fooled by the baby face
and the innocent, youthful grin...The Mechanic is a serious threat on the
basketball court, on offense and on defense.  Yes, he can play strong defense
when motivated to do so. In terms of trash talk, he can take it and he can dish it out too.
Weak-Spot: None really to speak of... The Mechanic is a shoot first type of player, as long
as everyone understands that, there won't be any problems. Sometimes he's accused
of playing uninspired, matador, defense...Sometimes that's true...Sometimes it's not.

He can rebound and punish opponents with strong low post play, when he wants to. 
Great attitude and a vocal leader on and off the court. Keep an eye out for the
Gil I Am Patented No Look Basket!

Weak-Spot: Has a tendency to share offensive possessions with less talented
scorers...Sometimes he needs to be more selfish and shoot that short jumper. 
Usually in pretty good shape, however 'Father Time' is calling and we miss those
one hand dunks off the rebounds.

On a scale of 1-10....Gil I Am rates an 5.8

usually in great shape.  Athletic player who can score, defend and run 
a team.  Shows vocal leadership on and off the court and makes players

like hustling for loose balls and getting back on 'D"  
Weak-Spot:  Has a tendency to challenge taller defenders on his way to the
basket...as opposed to utilizing his perimeter shooting.  Can shoot well from

NYDLBALL Scouting Report: Soup is a phenomenal athlete.  
He is a scoring guard/forward who is always in perpetual motion.  He has an 
uncanny knack for finding the soft spot in a defense and exploiting them.  
He can rebound, pass and play defense.  He has a high basketball IQ and 
would be a great Coach on a Middle School or High School level. He is 
versed at all of the fundamental aspects of the game and will punish a team 
that doesn't recognize his presence on the court.  Not much of a trash talker, 
but I'm sure if he wanted to he could talk someone out of their game.  Soup 
is an ageless wonder and is well known throughout the five boroughs and 
has played with and against some of the greatest to come out of NYC.
Weak-spots...None to speak of....He plays good defense...He's a good 
passer...He can rebound...And he's always in good physical shape.  Great Player.

NYDLBALL Scouting Report: Rebounder, defender with athletic ability
and a high B-ball IQ.  Can score, pass and defend very well.  Good offensive
arsenal inside and out...A slasher.  Not a big Trash Talker...But he can certainly
hold his own with the chatter.  Experienced, hard worker who has does all of

wants to he can guard players much taller than he is and shut them down.
Great attitude and a vocal leader on and off the court. Eddie Sky-LoLo

NYDLBALL Scouting Report: Exceptional defender with above average B-ball IQ...
An athletic scorer who's not afraid to mix it up under the boards.  Can run an offense...
Can score in the low post, facing or with his back to the basket....A big trash talker
when provoked...Experienced, hard worker who is usually in great shape...over the
years he's been accused of being washed up...However, I believe we haven't heard
the last of 'The Pasha"  Has the ability to control game play...and has a flair for
end of game heroics.  Can score jumper when wide open. Doesn't necessarily need the
ball to be effective...He can score off the boards and can play larger than his listed
height.

Weak-Spot: Defending the 3-point shot and conditioning may be a factor.  Has a
tendency to put a team on his shouldeers and carry the heavy weight...With
Father Time ticking we shall see if he can still produce on a stellar level...or is

NYDLBALL Scouting Report: Good scorer from around the court. Can play
good defense when inspired to do so.  Average B-ball IQ...Not the slowest
on the court, has a great first step. Better shooter than a ball-handler.
Will talk trash when provoked.  Most improved player I have ever seen...Lately.

Weak-Spot: Defending in the open court. Sometimes he rest on "D"...conditioning
could be better. Sometime he is a hard worker...Sometimes he's not. Needs to
set more picks away from the ball and roll to shooting position on the court.
Conditioning may fluctuate from season to season. Can really help some club
out there to have a good season.

On a scale of 1-10...Jump Shot rates a 3.3
