Default Netball is the easiest game to play...

They shoot like 1 feet away from the hoop, and opponents cannot jump to block and have to stand a certain distance away if i'm not wrong...

Well, at least the girls are hot...

Basketball with no dribbling?

And why aren't they trying to block the shot?

Other than the not jumping to block a shot, it looks like a cool game. I've never actually watched it before this.

They can stick out a hand to contest the shot, but they can't leave the ground. Also I think they have to stand a certain distance away from the shooter.

Agreed. If you could jump to block, it would be a fun modification of basketball to play.

Wouldn't this pretty much be the original version of basketball?

You can jump to block. You just have to be a foot or so away, otherwise its a foul.

Goaltending is allowed as well.

Anyone know if any nba level basketball player tried this out?

Crazy how pretty some of the girls are compared to the beasts in the WNBA.

We essentially did this in HS basketball practice to work on getting good ball movement. We just didn't do it as a full scrimmage, we just did it down the court and back and then rotated people in.

It's not that easy. It's a pretty fun sport to watch, similar to basketball, only with smoking hot chicks in short skirts.

It's basically a game for retarded idiot girls to feel good about themselves. It's impossible to fail at this.

That game looks terrible

Why don't those chicks just play some volleyball instead? A real sport, and a girl sport. This is plain out retarded on a competitive level perspective.

And yeah volleyball should be a chick only sport.

I'd love to see you or anyone else saying this is easy try. The GS' and GD's are usually 6'4+ and do on thing over and over again so it looks easy. If you'd only seen Steve Nash shoot ft's you'd think that was easy too.
