Re: Zone or Man to Man D against fast, black, athletic youth?
I don't like playing zone in pickup. I do sometimes when I don't really have a choice. Where I grew up it was taboo. Even playing pick up with my team in college it was taboo. It kind of like saying I'm not good enough to man-up.
Also, the idea that 4 random white guys are better than athletic black guys but can only beat them with a zone is funny. Most likely these guys have no real bball training and the rotations are crap. If they were really smart they can just back off there man and get lots of help from their teammates.
