    Default Unofficial RR basketball tournament

    The first official unofficial RR basketball tournament in recent memory!!!

    Who: You + Whoever you bring along + Guys you don't bring along but show up anyway + Me

    Where: Toronto, but where? yeah ... I don't know my around Toronto much so it'll be up to you to agree on a place with nice courts (I'll put it here after we agree on something)

    When: During the weekend of the 25th to 27th of August (vote for what is doable for you as an option(s) in the poll)

    How: Well, I'd say probably a 3-on-3 tourney, where we make teams when we show up

    Cost: Free of course (though feel free to give me money if you feel the need)

    Please vote in the poll if you are going or are maybe going and if so also for a set of dates you'd be interested in going, so as many of us as possible will show up.

    We will probably finish off the day in Real Sports or somewhere, so you can bring some cash for that.

    I know this is not the right forum for this, but I think it gets the most visits so I thought what the heck ...

    Let's set it up at Michael Jordans place in Chi town. I've heard he's got a pretty sweet court in his mansion.

    No, no, not at all ... it will be just more for fun than for glory, fortune and fame.

    It will most likely be outside, just so that is clear.

    Bring the party to sketchener and I'm down haha.

    But I would love to but I have no transportation to Toronto, but if we can get like a solid amount of other people I'll find a way to get there and be the last guy to make it 3 people on every team. That way there could be a legit 3 on 3 tournament with multiple teams.

    Man, I'd love to have it in Sketchener cuz I'm from there, but nobody else or very few live there and it is kinda out of the way for others/most


    A multiple team 3-on-3 tournament is the goal yes, we'll divide the teams on the spot I guess though.

    Oh come on man... make it indoor court
    unless the outdoor court is actually legit
    Ive seen too many crappy outdoor courts

    If you need money to get an indoor court, I don't mind paying as long as I don't take too much of such burden

    I'll see what I can do, but don't get your hopes up. I'd definitely find a good outdoor court no worries (it has the benefit that if there are too few of us, we can always add a random person who comes to the court). But I'll look into an indoor court somehow ... I just got to Canada last week and haven't been here for 6 years so I dunno ... I'm saying there's a chance.

    That sounds awesome. Now you got me wondering who's who in those pics. I can just imagine the trash talking that goes on in these games. I picture someone dribbling down the lane for a floater yelling "derozan is inefficient!" while someone swats that weak garbage screaming "he's an allstar bitch!".

    Good times

    It's alright, usually full of people already playing and/or waiting to get in. Sorauren park might be a better bet, it's kind of a hidden gem
