Default Don't you find these *******s annoying?

Do you absolutely hate those *******s who seem to think that there's an unwritten rule that, when you're playing all alone, they have the right to rebound the ball for you and take shots too? I mean, if it were me and my friends, then that would be awesome, but these are 20 year old jobless mother****ers, who I don't know or give a flying **** about, just barge in whenever I want to get some time to practice on my own. The other problem is that they're stubborn! They don't listen to you if you ask them if you can get some solo practice, but then they just don't understand and keep shooting. Who here hates these guys?

I know exactly what you're talking about. Sometimes I have to play like 3 straight one on ones when all I want to do is work on my J. Other times it's some scrub dude who just wants to chuck for 10 minutes. Best way to avoid this is to pracice real early--usually nobody is out at that time. Or, if they just want to shoot around, make like ten in a row and they get bored just rebounding.

Damn, that's horrible. Never happened to me, but I'd be pissed if it did. I can't imagine just going up and shooting someone else's ball, too.

They take the ball after 2 shots, regardless of whether it's a make or miss. Another thing that sucks is that they're not even from this village most of the time.

Oh God, I know exactly what you and some others are talking about. It doesn't matter what time of day.

I'll be shooting around on a weekend waiting for friends and some scrub will try to jack up 3's, completely missing the backboard and rim, and me of course waiting for the rebound has to go get it since I'm closest to the ball.

I'll be shooting around on a weekday and some jobless 40 year old appears and wants to shoot with me. What the hell.

I'll be shooting at 6AM to avoid these idiots when some random dude passing by during his regular morning walk asks to join in. And of course he jacks up the ugliest shots too.

Meanwhile, none of these fools understand that if you make a shot, you get to keep shooting. I'll make a sweet jumpshot and am ready to see if I'm hot, and the retard will go pick up the ball and start jacking up his own shot.

I guess I'm not used to these guys because I used to live out in the boonies, but from now on, I'm definitely gonna start saying no.

And I'm not trying to be racist, but what's with these Mexican *******s who decide to play soccer on the basketball court. If we happen to be playing a half court game and these Mexican idiots arrive, they ask us to move. What the hell? So of course, we refuse and they try to start ****.

I hate this too man, but I have to remind myself that it's a public gym and everybody has the same rights to use whatever they want as me
wA kinda similar experience was when i was holding a ball while a game was going on ( shooting on the clear side before they ran back) then this scrub guy that i dont know runs up behind me and pokes the ball out my hand, and takes it to the other side. Wow, i followed him and told him to give me it back and he wouldnt, he said its everybodys ball

If only my gym membership didnt mean so much to me

They're really annoying. I usually just play them 1 on 1 for the ball and that usually makes them leave me alone. If there is a group of them coming, I usually leave and go to another park nearby.
