Default Re: Cant play ball anymore at the park closest to my house...

^True enough eh. Last week my cousin and I see four guys who are all probably 16-17 range. We challenge them to a game and give us their worst player to try and be fair as possible (we're older 25 and 31) and they scoff at us and they're all like "I'm not playing with those old guys". One of their guys gets tired of arguing and agrees to play with us.

Not even half way though the game, 9-1 for us actually and the punks throw a fit and walk off the court. Why not stick it out and try and learn from this experience. I paid my dues from the older guys. Thats just how it works. I should of taken their ball away for being such *****es.

I remember when I played against older opponents, ha, I killed them. They played hard though, and I did learn one thing, watch out for those damn elbows. I got hit with elbows on both cheeks(the face) while, my team full of HS students, dominated. The whole time, I was saying "cant touch this"

On a side note, it depends who you play with. Back in the day I preferred playing with blacks because it raised my game up a ton. They were quicker, faster, and jumped higher so I had to compensate by working on my jumper. To this day I'm pretty lethal from outside the arc, but I'm also equally as good inside the paint as I grew to appreciate the toughness that was associated in some of these playground pick-up games. I'm old enough now not to put up with anyone who's "chirpin" out there. I don't care what color you are, if you're going for an easy lay-up, I'm hacking. If I block your shot, I'll yell at you for bringing that weak stuff at me. But, like I said before, it depends on who you play with. Some people will take that stuff to heart and get offended, while on the other hand, and for the most part, it challenges them to play better and they adapt. I haven't had a basketball scuffle in years.

I second that. Also just because they are black, it does not mean that they have guns and knives. I have balled all over Los Angeles and Compton and I have seen a few fights but I have never seen guns or knives used in a fight over a pickup game.
