|> What do they say while trash speaking?
Since everybody else is ridiculing you, I'll be different and actually tell you
the truth. Basically they talk about three things that can be listed in
categories. Your family, you and your game in general, and what they going to do to you.
Section 1: Your family. This is where the ever popular you mama jokes came intoplay, i.e. Yo mama so fat, her shadow ways 40lbs, Yo mama so generous, she gave me the hair off her back, Yo mama so dirty, every time she showers, she loses
fif*** lbs, etc. Or they speak of your family i.e. Your family is so poor they go to Kentucky Fried Chicken to*** other peoples fingers, Yo daddy so
poor, he learned magic so he could pull foodstamps out of a hat, etc. Sometimesit gets down right vulgar, though. I won't go into that because this news-
group is supposed to rated PG.
Section 2: You and your game. They could talk about your b-ball gear i.e.
look at those ol' crusty WWII army boot look-alike shoes, them things are older
than ET t-shirt that your wearin'. Or they could talk about the weaknesses in
your game i.e. Boy, your ain't got no J, you better drive cuz we don't have
any spare backboards to use, when your bricks break this one, or Why don't you
use that numb you call left every now and then, cuz you can't, or You can't shoot, you can't dribble, all you do is foul, sorry scrub, go home. All this isdesigned to annoy you into attempting to actual do what you are weakest at, i.e shooting, handling the ball, or whatever.
section 3: What gonna' happen. This is what Bird made famous. He would talk
to whoever was planning to guard him before games. He would predict where he
felt hot from, and how many he was gonna score. Then he actually do it. There
was a story, where he told some guy that the game was gonna be close all the waythrough, but at the end he was gonna get the ball and shoot it from a certain
spot (the spot was about 6 feet outside the arc, almost directly above the key).And the Celts were gonna, win by 1, when the end of the game came, everything
happened just as Bird had predicted so far. With a couple of seconds left on
the clock, Larry ran to the spot. The defender got their a split second after
the ball. With the defender draped across him, he still attempted the shot and boston won by one.
All of these things tend to remove a player from the mental aspect of the game, therefore, it gives the talker quite an advantage. Any more questions about this just ask.

tryin' to make a dollar oughta' fif*** cents"
