When I'm shooting? "All day", "Yo face", "Bank, Dawg", "Swish", "Buckets", "Money", "Dolla Billz Yall", "You got nothing", etc. haha

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.
lol if someone did that to me i'd give them one warning and if they did it one more time i'm playing dirty as **** and fouling the shit out of them

It's not a hard poke though. Just a slight touch it makes people jump most of the time.

I'm used to it though cause like I said I grew up with people doing it to me so it really kinda helped me concentrate on my shot while shooting.

I've seen people in the NBA do it also

I've seen whites talk trash too(very rare though)

Most people that trash talk suck anyway.

You couldn't play where I'm from cause they trash talk and pull out guns. It's stupid but what be funny is it be people that known each other since the sandbox days

I was playing a pick up game at the high school last winter, we start playing, a high school kid is guarding me talking all kinds of trash, I never spoke a word the whole time. 5 minutes in we take a break in the action he comes up and starts trying to make small talk. I give him my best deaf guy impersonation, acting like I can't talk that well, I told him i'm not wearing my hear aid.

His face.

I will do it to a player if I feel it will bother him, I will do it just pre-shot as he is setting it up. Just something for him to think about, works well if the guy is on a roll.

I really don't like it when people do that when I shoot, I feel insulted. However, I typically make it, and then proceed to stare them down while busting out the Mutumbo finger wag.

i got pinged a tech foul for doing this exact same thing (clapping whislt running out on shooters)

apparently it's not legal play ... i play in Sydney, Australia so it's possibly a FIBA rule ... maybe ... I dunno, I got pinged a tech foul for doing it though

I hear that and "short" all the time.

I'll usually say "nope" if a shot feels bad off the release, started as a tip for my rebounders, but over time I think it's just become second nature, for better or for worse ha.

I don't get pissed as a player if someone does this, personally, it doesn't do shit to change my shot.

I did have a teammate back in high school who always used to do that though, and would get warned several times by the officials. Some refs would let him get away with it but most of the time he'd get a "1 time warning" and would get teched up if he did it again.

It's all good though, anything goes out on the blacktop.
