Default What is the Basketball Slang in your city?

Every city has their own basketball jargon. Around the Chi area, these terms are common on the local courts:

Travelling is referred to as "steps"

A person who doesn't like to pass the ball is called a "gun", instead of other common names like "chucker" and "Ballhog"

A layup is called a "crip", so when guys are shooting layups before a game, it's called "shooting crips"
