Default What does etiquette dictate in this situation? Streetball question.

4 half-courts. 3 are occupied (with games). An individual is shooting on the other. A second individual begins shooting. A group of four guys enter and shoot. The second individual and the four guys want to play a game, the first individual does not. Should...

a) the first individual yield to the majority
b) the majority wait for the first individual

Thoughts?

Where are these courts? At a school? A public gym? Public courts by the corner store?

Im thinking that to not be a dick the first guy gives up the court. You dont make guys sit around while you shoot.

Yea you were there first....but there is a "Dude...." factor at play here.

Etiquette #1: First guy should offer the court to the group.

if not then,

Etiquette #2: First guy should tell the group how long he's planning to stay.

there are certain courts to go where you just go shoot and they're empty all the time. even if you want a game, ain't nobody coming unless they came with you.

and then there are courts where it's always packed and everybody just show up to get runs. if you're a loner guy who shows up and just wants to hog a space and shoot around but refuse to play, maaan, get the fvvvvvvck off the court. your ass autistic or something? you don't belong there.
