Re: which do you like the most?
4 on 4 half court is my game if we're talking about getting a game at the park.
I feel it gives you the best semblance of what a real game is like, more so than 5 on 5 at a pick up game. 5v5 has too much one on one play and nearly everything is scored off the break. Some guys are too lazy to get up for offense, the others for defense. You never really run a nice set in 5v5.
4v4 halfcourt, everything is up at one end, the lane is reasonably crowded a lot of the time, nice help defense, people don't kill themselves running full out in the first 5 minutes. Think it forces you to work on your jumpshot, etc.
