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

Maybe they are about to go lift weights and shooting around as a warm up to get their blood flowing and don't want to get caught up in a game and get worn out.

At this point of my life; Weight lifting > My basketball career is where my priorities are.

Either that or you're that fggt that never passes the ball, calls every ticky tack foul and yells at teammates when someone abuses you and they just don't want to play with you

When guys try to re-enact what they did. ie- you call travel and then it's this ridiculous "NO. NO. I did like this..." and then they try to show you how it was their pivot foot or something, like their slow mo reenactment is an accurate depiction of what happened.

Or when cats want to "shoot for it" every time you make a call. Dude, you were out of bounds, we don't need to shoot for it. F*ck.

The people who play other sports especially football and think that playing defense is being all over the offensive player and hacking and fouling. If you do not even know how to play defense please do not waste our time by playing basketball stick to your sport.

I've been playing with a guy lately that thinks playing legal physical defense is a foul and he uses that as his excuse to hack the shit out of people

What is legal defense anymore? I think in college just touching the ball handler is a foul

The hard picks yeah. I'm talking about the ones where you know the guy is trying to blindside someone. That shit is just trying to hurt people...not cool.

You know what else annoys me. The guy who doesn't try to play any defense cuz he got matched up with a kid. I'm the one who comes looking for that cheap block. Come to think of it, I'm probably annoying to a lot of people for doing that I do it because that's always the games I remember having the most fun when I was a kid. Felt like I belonged when I wasn't given any easy ones. I also do it because it's fun to feel like Shaq for a moment in my life

1. Hack you close to the basket on a guaranteed layup.

2. Lie about the score, hoping you forget and then proceeding to argue the point.

3. Celebrate like a clown.

Bruh, this streetball. No easy basket. I'd hack you every time you come in the lane. Better use that strength.

Unless it's a mean crossover and homie fall, than yes. Who celebrates during a pick up game.

I don't really celebrate but if I am in a heated game where there is a lot of trash talk and a lot of tension, I will/would/already have chest bump my teammate after hitting a Reggie Miller off the screen type game finishing 2

But yeah, celebrating is pointless. Usually say good game and shake everyone's hand.

Agree on these.

I can remember playing a pickup game at school and some asshole decided to jump into me after I had released the ball on a layup and was coming down, twisted/banged one of my knees and I was out for the rest of the day (and several more after that).

The guy who wants to play down low on offense but calls fouls all the time if you want to play in the post you need to man up and stop being a baby.

I'm having fun reading these. I get annoyed by ball-hoggers and guys that think the whole game is about driving into a cluttered mess of people and trying to do a cool looking layup.
