So you are as good as Cousy was when he was 12? Sounds about right.

To answer your question, if the people on ISH are as good as they say they are they should be able to beat an average HS player 1v1. I known I can. And I know I would not beat Cousy 1v1 given that we are playing 60s era rules which is only fair.

A high school player against Cousy would look much the same against Cousy as they would against Jason Williams, Steve Nash, Magic Johnson or Pete Maravich.

Because those are examples of players that borrowed major elements of Cousy's game. Cousy would make high school players of any era look retarded. Cousy regularly threw passes and made plays that would make any professional look stupid in any era, let alone high school kids. Even that 1950's rules way he dribbles or shoots only looks funny until you realize you still can't steal it out of his hands and he's still getting to every single place on the floor he wants to with impunity, and he's still sinking those push shots or driving around you if you guard him too close.


the play at 1:39 shows how awful basketball was back then

You look at MJ as an example, he actually was not a 'flashy' dribbler, his moves were all about weight distribution, getting your opponent to put his weight on one foot then going the other way.

Sometimes in streetball I like to dribble one handed up and down like Cousy, hand literally on top of the ball, then some anxious player will think I have no handle and reach for it, then I just quickly do a crossover and goodbye. You reach, I teach.

Shut up old man. You teach, and I come back and block your ass, go on the fastbreak and dunk on your team with your whole family watching in joy that I just ate your heart out.

Youre just lucky that I wasn't in the 60's. Otherwise you would be saying "Theres no way I could beat AirTupac, he was a legend in the 60's"

Cousy basically retired in 1963.

This guy was playing high school basketball shortly after that...

How many average high school kids could beat this 6-5 guy today?

He straight destroyed that one dudes ankles and his dribbling looks pretty damn good considering the stricter rules.

Also keep in mind since that is 60's footage it is only at 1/10th normal speed so he is actually moving blazing fast (think Westbrook speed).
Ask CavsFTW.

Cooz would destroy most modern guards.

I feel as if I could beat most guys just by backing down and using my strength (yes, it is boring), but NBA level players, even in the 60's would be just too quick. They know how to make you shift your weight around which allows them to swipe at the ball a particular way.

Even watching someone like the Professor from And1 verse bigger guys, like 6'4 or 6'5 with a great game, he knows how to manage them in the post.
