is this an illegal screen?
 
In a league game, When you set a pick and instead of covering your nuts, you raise your hands in the air?

I don't believe it is, since he doesn't extend his limbs outward to impede the other player's movement.

I think his hands have to be straight up, like he's trying to block someone's shot, his elbows can't be bent on the sides wider than his shoulders would be.

as long as you don't make urself wider.

I was playing at a company pick up game and this one guy set a pick on me with his elbows out making himself a lot wider. i was a little shocked, i told him he couldn't do that. he said i was wrong, so i said if he thinks i'm wrong he should just set picks w/ his arms spread eagle then- clothes line everyone....

next time he set that illegal pick i just ran him over.

yup, as long as you are not making yourself wider, you are fine. i think the rules are shoulder width. usually refs dont call it that tight unless you make it real obvious or try to punk the guy that runs into the screen.

if you are going to raise your hands, make sure they are vertically up like you are taking a charge with someone driving in the lane, not extending out to create a wide stance.
