Re: Ever been in an altercation/argument/fight during pick up game?
I learned at an early age that "eye for an eye" is bad policy when playing pick-up.
Swallow your pride and just move on. People are petrified of being shown up in pick-up basketball and they will do whatever it takes to avoid it, including start a fight.
I've seen someone's car get keyed over nothing. Just walk away. You'll thank me later.
The only way to get back at them is to just play better. That's the only way you can show them up without escalating the situation. Get your revenge by fueling your speed or stroke and beating your man.
