Hey if you just say F them tho and play hard then you will get their respect. Anybody will respect someone that keeps coming back.


Like the attitude! Since I'm 5'9" and 150 basically Earl Boykins on steriods :) and haven't played any bball since Jr High.. (am 24) it's been 10yrs since I had last played. So I blew but I goto the gym 3-4x a week shoot by myself for 2hrs. Eventually anyone that puts themselves out there should pick up on how to fix things and become better. Unless you're stupid and keep repeating what isn't working haha. But in a matter of months I'm playing and getting that respect you speak of playing on the main court at our Rec. I love it...and I have a lot of improvement that I know I can gain fairly quick. I respect people that work hard and wouldn't let others judgement stop you else you already have failed man - get out there!

That doesn't exist in Brooklyn. I found a league where kids that are 16-21 play which is a few streets away from my house. I checked it out last week, and I was the only person under 6'2" in there. I'd play there, but the only problem is that they play up, with guys 22+, and I don't want to get trampled.






I hope it doesn't seem like I'm making excuses, which I'm not.

Whaaaa?!?! You're lucky if you get to play against older/better players all the time. How do you think you'll get better if not playing against people that can trample you? lol

Growing up my only competition in my town was the old guys that would play ball at the city auditorium here twice a week. Once I surpassed them within a few years time, I lost my drive to keep playing.

I couldn't find time in my schedule to play. I come home from school at 5 and it's already dark outside, so I can't go to the park then. I have to do too many things on the weekends to find time to play. I'm off from school this week, so I'll try to go to the park. The only problem is that my local park is covered with ice.

I know how you feel levis. I haven't played with anyone since my high school tryouts on November 16th, and it sucks. Thankfully im going to my dad's in new jersey the week after christmas and i have a YMCA membership there and its only like a 10 minute walk away. Im so excited. Even if i don't get to play with anyone i will have fun shooting with a full court that is level (there is a hoop about a 5 minute walk from my house now but it has tons of ditches so its hard to dribble.) and that has a ten foot hoop.(i have a hoop in my driveway but it only goes up to 9.5 feet)

I hate being away from basketball for more than a week. You will have to regain your game and that takes some time. If I didn't make the team idk what Id be doing.

Yea I have injuries right now and it's killing me. My damn hamstrings have been hurting me ever since I pulled them like a month and half ago... tho they aren't bad enough not to play at this point, but my knee flared up pretty bad and it's totally sidelined me. I just want to get out there a run a couple games 2 or 3 times a week but I can't. I have been watching a lot of videos on moves and stuff and I'm dying to try them out or at least practice them. It's amazing how many moves I just never thought of before... or variations of moves I never thought of before.

This. Certain times the gym is completely empty so you can practice to your hearts content. Other times there are bunches of people so you can play pickup games. Membership rates aren't too bad, and you can use the Nautilus machines and weights too.

I got a basketball gym right across the street. I walk like 10 seconds and i can do everything i want in there.
It's pretty cool, especially in the Winter to play with all of the guys, and to see the girls practising in the other court.
