Default Have you have this problem before?

Don't you hate it when you and your friends are shooting around then a group of older and bigger people come and ask to play along like play fifty or a pickup game. I don't know but I just stand there waiting for the ball and when I do get the ball, I just throw the ball up. I don't follow through, everything is just a mess. It makes me look like I suck, when actually if I play with people I know, my shots goes in. I don't like it when people stare at me who I never saw or play with me before. The thing that pissed me off is I could have done better like blocking their shots, but I just stand there with my hands up. Any tips to overcome this "nervousness" or have you deal the same thing before?

The thing i do is to imagine the other people as just other people and you have to believe in your skill enough to where you can play any random person and win. Just play as if they are your friends. Be friendly with them too and don't b**** about fouls. Just play like you usually play and keep your mouth shut and you will do good. Remember to be silent but deadly.

yea if you are a decent player and show out(play good) then you'll get respect for your game and you can get some friends and then you will be more comfortable...
