Every Pick-Up Basketball Stereotype

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Just recently we saw a Jordan video that featured Blake Griffin playing with the guy who thinks he can play but is actually terrible. That is a classic pick-up ball stereotype, one of any number of types of players you tend to run into on the regular on the court.

The guys from Dude Perfect, a group of Texas A&M students who know a thing or two about viral basketball videos and are committed to achieving a bunch of random goals, put together a new video that catalogues every pick-up basketball stereotype. Be honest: Which one are you?
