I would hope you play with people that don't stand for that garbage.
Every once in a while I find a game that is just ridiculous, immature, stupid, way unprofessional, etc. When this happens I swallow my pride, look like a weirdo, and go to another hoop/court. I've learned the best thing to do is to just ignore the situation. I usually look like a prude, loser, or asshole but who cares? I don't want to play with them in the first place.
I even had this one time a guy was handchecking me like crazy and going nuts on me. After trash talking back and forth, I torched him on a couple plays, and he started pushing me here and there and nobody cared. I just up and walked away from the game. I don't put up with that shit.
Playing with a chip on my shoulder helps me, but the best players do this without having to prove anything. When a situation like that arises, gotta just go away. I've seen too many morons fighting over egos in basketball.
