Default Do you call out "SHORT!"

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.

It's usually to tell the rebounders where to expect the ball, I've never had anyone use it as a mental game/trash talk.

If he calls it out on every shot he's a douchebag. That'd get annoying to this teammates even

Nobody ever calls out "LONG!" Why is that?

No, but I don't see anything wrong with calling it out.

lol people yell "short" for no reason?

i personally use "short" and "off"

short when it's short, duh
and off then it's to the right or left

just to help the rebounders

I hate it when people call off on every shot you shoot when clearly you are a better shooter than they are.

It makes me wanna go into Kobe mode

Why are you worried about etiquette in a basketball game? I do worse every time I play.

Hell I clap and yell something stupid at them to see if it will throw them off.

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.

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

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

lol semi-related:

I always wondered how the NBA commish would act if a player were to legally molest other players on the court, like caressing their balls, fingering, etc. while D'ing them up.

I have a buddy I yell out "oh f*ck you" if I'm out of position or "nice shot" right before he actually shoots. Screws him up every time.
