So far this year, there's been at least one player at our courts who is a serious ball-handling offender. Head down, hugs the baseline after an opponent scores so he can receive the inbound by default, decides he's going to shoot by the time he hits half court, decides who he's going to pass to 4 seconds too late. . .the whole nine yards. Not a fun situation. He's the classic horrible player who gets lucky just often enough to re-affirm his own actions.

Where are you visiting within the USA?

Those guys are the worst.

I have a friend who chucks 3 all game. He will put up an average of 10 3's in a game to 21 and probably shoots around 15% normally. Eventually we all get frustrated but one game he will nail 4 in a row which just solidifies his own self-appointed title as a "shooter."

People that overdribble are terrible tho. I probably never take more than 3 or 4 dribbles in a half court setting because if I don't make my move in 1 or 2 dribbles then I'm already at a disadvantage. Not many people can overdribble with success.
