I don't find anything wrong with that. Why should 1 guy practicing by himself prevent 10 guys from playing a full-court game?

Basketball is a team sport. An intense, solo practice session is great, but playing against real competition (even if they're worse than you are; live bodies) is the way to go.

You might make some new friends too, you antisocial pricks. :)

I agree with you on that. If a few people come up and politely ask for maybe like a game or something or to just shoot the ball around I usually agree. It's just those **** that automatically think they're better than you and challenge you 1 on 1 or something.

Maybe because you have the same right to be on the court as they do. Why can't they play half court or find another court?

How about you tell them to stop, and **** off. You just let people take your basketball, then whine about it on the internet? Tell them this to their face, not to us.

I do. They don't listen. And who the heck is gon' listen to anyone almost half their age anyway? At least I'm just owning them now whenever I play pick-up with them.

EDIT: Damn, I started this thread?!?!!

If I'm just shooting around and a guy asks to fire away, I've got no issues whatsoever. Sometimes I wish I could just keep shooting alone, but it doesn't kill me to let other people shoot as well. Plus, it really is an alright way to get to know some people at your park, gym or court.

Further, I usually accept one-on-one invitations as an opportunity to work on my game.

Yeah, asks. If they ask, at least it shows they're respectful. If they just butt in like they own the court, which they definitely don't, then that just shows me that they're rude assholes who I shouldn't really bother hanging with.

its better to have somebody shoot with you, just take turns having one grab all the rebounds and pass them to you, its better than chasing down all the balls, you can work on your form better that way because youre shooting more frequently.

funnily enough i've never really experienced this where i live. its pretty common to find people at almost every court so my experience is that people tend to either bring their own ball or ask first if they can shoot with you.

however, there is this one little kid who seems to be a regular at one of the courts i play. this kid is no more than 8 or 10 years old and he always just walks in and starts to shoot my ball. it doesnt matter if im with 3 or 4 people, as soon as he shows up, he just waltzes right on in and starts shooting around. what i find irritating is he's always challenging people to play 21, horse, etc. with him. whenever he shows up, my friends and i usually just keep the ball away from him til he leaves.

don't get me wrong, if he asks i would be more than glad to shoot around.

I usually just tell people that the ball I'm shooting with is mine and if they want, they can get a ball from the front desk.
