few weeks ago, was playing full court 5 v 5. I was the odd man out within a group of 4 other people.

Pretty much the whole game i barely touched the ball, and whenever i did i scored with it. I was pretty much perfect the whole game, and scored liek 3 times off steals. But my teammates were pretty much ignoring me for some reason, was it because i was quiet?
one play that particular pissed me off was when i got a rebound and i was going for the fast break, and i managed to get through like 4 defenders. Teammates couldnt keep up with me, and it ended up being 1v4, so me being the smart player, decided to back out and set up our offense. Now the part that made me seriously wanna punch someone was when our point guard literally ran up to me and snatched the ball like i was going to lose it or soemthing. that ****in' pissed me off, and i swear if i see that guy again im decking him
but back to my question:
do people think u suck cuz ur quiet, and not assertive in game?
Can't believe that idiot snatched the ball from u. Disrespectful. Don't worry about it. U have cooled off by now and realize he is an idiot. It's best to keep ur emotions in check.
I always try to think about the next play or possession. If I miss a jumper or layup, I don't get mad and just get back on D and get ready to score or make an assist on the next possession.
I hate it when dudes get all mad when they miss or turn the ball over and don't get back on Defense.
