Its like a "playa" only with the absence of a connotation of playing women, and the introduction of a connotation of being proficient at a ball-involved sport, usually basketball. It has evolved, similar to playa, to mean a popular, confident young person in certain youth societies.... the kind of societies that like to wear basketball jerseys that were apparently made for giants and jeans or sweatpants that were apparently made for the obese population, not the emaciated.
