When playing hoops what do you guys think about people who shout out, "SHORT!" ? Some people use it all the time on every shot! I find that annoying. I don't think it really helps anybody rebound any better. I like drilling shots on fools who use it all the time.
Why are you worried about etiquette in a basketball game? I do worse every time I play.
well i've been doing that for years and only recently i thought some folks might frown upon it. depends who you're playing with, i wouldn't worry in a pickup game outside but i also play a weekly mens scrimmage and those guys might not appreciate it.... curious about ish's take

Nothing wrong with that.
I some times poke people in the stomach also(people here would actually call foul too. Talking bout it affects their shot.). I get that from back home though.
k good to know.
the poking is a bit too blatantly dirty for me, i dont think that would fly against most guys. i piss people off with my elbows, arm bars, lots of shoving, occasionally hold jerseys if i know the guy im defending, but thats all around the basket or in a crowd where anything goes... not so much on close outs lol
one of my favourite techniques is going into a straight raging charge like im about to waterboy the shooter and then veering off at the last second. really fks people up, tho again usually only against friends haha
