How about the bitches who NEVER want to play a pickup game?

"Yo you guys wanna play, we're trying to run 3s"

"Nah we're good" (we just wanna stand over here and jerk each other off)

fcking hate that shit. If you're injured or are gonna leave soon then whatever, but why wouldn't you want to play?

You sound so threatened because basketball is what you're good at, and people who are better at other things are able to play with you in your territory.

People like you act like douchebags on the court and take things personally. It's fucking basketball. Get over yourself.

I hate playing with people who don't hustle/play D. If someone isn't doing both of those things they're generally a piece of shit who cares more about looking good when they play than winning.

Maybe they just don't want to play.

Dirty players. I hate guys who elbowed, or cheap shots their opponents in the face, or stomach.

Teammates who do not switch on pick and rolls and then blame you for them not switching even though I say "switch" to them.

Just as bad as a ball hog is a shot hog. They just shoot and shoot and shoot and yeah they may make some but they miss a lot to.

When your on a team of people who know each other and have played together before so they just pass to each other and almost never to you.

This doesn't really annoy me but once you play at our gym for a few years, there is a certain group of people who play within their own group. Unless you looked really ripped or you're tall, they would rarely pick you up. All of them are great players some are former college ball players. I think one time we called next and got rocked 11-2 and 11-4 in consecutive games and they were barely trying.

Also about 2 years ago, we played a team with everyone in the lineup being at least 6'3''+. We only had two dudes out of 5 who were over 6'0'', one was 6'1'' and the other was the tallest on the court at around 6'7''. This 6'4'' guy guarded me, I'm 5'9''. I got rejected like 6 times.

On the fast break, I tried getting his missed shot's rebound. He missed 2-3 times in a row and easily rebounded over me lol. Talked a ton of trash too . Didn't mind, I thought it was pretty funny myself.

Happens SO often at my gym at night if you go after 10pm. It closes a 12 on weekdays and 10 on weekends. A lot of people just play ball during that 2 hour gap period to finish off the light cardio after their workouts.

Occasionally you see a dude shooting around with a girl he was working out with, that's usually annoying if you only need one more and you know he probably won't offer to play so you end up having to do like 4 v 4 with an alternate.

guys who refuse to suck me off after the game...

im gay, always been. it sucks how little gay people i come across in normal public settings.

obviously i go on gay dating sites and next year ill be able to attend gay bars... but in the mean time it sucks holding back my feelings all the time.

im not ashamed of being gay but its a major ****ing inconvenience sometimes. ugh.

Why would their answer change just because they keep getting asked the same question?
