Default Re: what type of offense do you run in a pick up game?

Where I'm from, setting a screen in a pick-up game is considered snobbish, nerdy and almost unsportsmanlike. You gotta win on skills, not on strategy. Especially players who've never been coached and are strictly street ballers are looking like "what?", sometimes even literally saying "what is that" or "that's illegal"

So you see players who are used to playing an offense passing the ball, moving to do a screen-away, but not actually setting the screen, just swapping position.

Lots of give n go, in-out, cutting, posting and generally lots of off the baal movement
