Default Re: Is this an offensive foul in streetball?

I would say this would unequivocally not be an offensive foul in streetball. 99 times out of 100, the only time I'm in position to slap away a defender's hand is when they're attempting to reach across my body, which very well could be a foul on their part in a real game, but is not something one would ever call in streetball. As such, I view the slap away as a street countermove to the over-wily reacher. It's more of a "C'mon now, quit your lame reaching, son" as opposed to being some kind of advantageous maneuver.
