Re: Getting frustrated
I do not discriminate between outdoor and indoor playing. During the summer, my indoor options are often very limited as I try to avoid paying to play whenever humanly possible. Recreational Leagues and Open Gyms at my old school have offered the best consistent competition through the years. The park in my area often has good competition, though sometimes not. Similarly, the local Y is really touch and go. I think the level of competition totally depends on the area and whatnot. I've had a lot of great games at the park.
Also, I like the double rims. It may sound a little funny, but I like how they make me perfect my shot. If I had to choose between rims that are too forgiving (like at my gym) and those that are not (my park) I choose the park - as the negative reinforcement makes me step my game up. If I'm not thinking, when I get a jumper to hop around and rattle in on an indoor rim, I see it only as a success when really, it was a relatively inaccurate shot.
