Yeah, but it keeps 'em moving and it weeds out the bad teams quickly. Plus, @ the places I hoop ... there is always a ton of people waiting. It makes sense, dude.

That poster probably hates it cause he'll step on the court and have to sit back down before he even gets a chance to "get into rhythm"

Doesn't matter for me though, up to 7, 5, 1, whatever, I'm always the one staying on the court, so its all good

Here are a few, including some that others have mentioned:


Horsing a guy = doing work inside and banging bodies on the boards or in the post

Cookies = picking a guy's pocket

Send that/Sent = swatting a shot

Piece/Pieced = partially blocking a shot, usually a jumper

Wet = when a shot goes in all net (or no rim, depending on where you're playing :) )

You got done = you got done

Sometimes used: "scraped" or "broke you off" on a nice crossover or any time you shake someone. I still occasionally hear "yolk/yoke" (sp?) as in "he yoked it on him" when a guy jams in another guy's face.


I play in Brooklyn and NYC, primarily. Occasionally on the Jersey shore.

I say "Visine" if I hit a jumper in a dude's eye.

Most of the terms used though have been mentioned in here, however.
