Flopping in pick-up games.....WHY? - Page 2

post #31 of 126

The only way to play a pickup game: five-on-five full court to 21, switching at 11, and win by two. Oh, and call your own fouls...pussy.

 

I've never seen someone flop in a pickup game though, but that'd be hilarious. My biggest pet peeve on the court are the foos who think they got the Eurostep down, when in reality, they're racking up frequent flyer miles with all that traveling. As Bill Russell once said, "The game has always been, and always will be about buckets."

Yall dont call moving screens? Foh.
Pick up games are far from nba regulated games but they have to be somewhat civilized. ****** forget its basketball not football driving in like they're Adrian Peterson and as for moving picks son is following me around with a screen through the entire three point line like he's holding an umbrella for me.
We call that **** out , don't eem hesitate.
Just cause its street ball doesn't mean it doesn't have to follow some of the nba rules.
Let me rephrase it..if youre blatantly following me around screening it gets called. If you move on accident cause you didn't know any better ill let it slide.
Very rarely do ppl do moving picks though . 99 % of the time im playing with my friends and we get ultra competitive. laugh.gif

Floppin in pickup games ain't new. Come on, we all know that one cat we play with that thinks every game is the NBA finals. Dude who can't be touched drivin' the lane or the guy callin' travel every time he gets blown by. We all played with this cat. Where I play we just say we ain't respectin' that call and move on. Unless it is a true hack; playthrough...get to 11, and stay on the court

When i was in NY i swear to God some guy called me for 3 seconds in the key.

This other time a dude that was on my team called 5 seconds back to the basket. I assumed it was an NY thing cuz nobody complained so I just left.

Man some dude called an illegal screen on my friend right after my team got the winning 3. Dude was way bigger than friend too, I was just like mean.gif
I only calls fouls if I'm getting hacked to the point I cant even get a shot off when I'm attempting one, too skinny to be trying to muscle thru ppl like Bron lol

Some dudes odd with the screens, dudes stay screening all the way to lane so that their man can get an open shot. mean.gif

Never forget when dudes were calling moving screens and offensive foul, during 3v3 or 4v4 half court pick up games laugh.gif

Hate soft players, dudes even get upset if you box them out.

^ i just tell people to go F themselves if they call nonsense like that, or point to the squash courts if they dislike any sort of contact laugh.gif

It's always the ones who think they are NICE too that makes all the calls.

I played with these young dudes 18-20 awhile back outdoors and they were calling timeouts, taking smoke breaks, and using subs. I was like....."What in the hell, things done changed!"

Young cats these days spend too much time indoors and online. I had infinite energy and no responsibilities when I was a young teen.


Subs? In a pickup game? What am I reading?

I think anyone who's played ball for awhile knows when a rule is just being abused in a pickup game.

Calling 3 seconds is just absurd in a pickup game. There are times when charging and moving screens need to be called though, but it has to be OBVIOUS and over the top. If im just standing there and you come at me full steam with your head down, its going the other way. If I go up for a shot and someone trys to slide over and take the charge? *****.

On a screen ill give you a step either way but any more than that and youre getting a shoulder to the gut or chin.

If I had to choose though, id rather play a game thats overly physical than overly soft.

ive had someone do that in a pickup game, i literally stone faced dude for a minute. most embarrassing thing ive seen on the court.

When I play pick up I don't call fouls. Just not my thing. Some times my boys get mad but I just look at it as a punk move. And it helps me become a stronger finisher.

But one time I saw dude pump fake, catch my teammate in the air and then he jumped into him and said "check".

Like this dude really jumped in to create the contact and called a foul. He didnt even put the shot up. Just jumped into him and "check". laugh.gif

I think you projected onto this statement or misinterpreted what I wrote. I don't need to hack or molest someone on defense like I am Ruben Patterson. I know how to move laterally and stay in front of an offensive player, but I am one of the few who also take pride in my defense. I like the challenge of stopping the best offensive player on the court. I know fouls are a part of the game as well. So if I am defending a 3 on 1 fast break and covering all my bases and happen to go for a steal/block and there is obvious contact which results in the offensive player losing the ball out of bounds. I give them ball up top, because I don't need charity calls and I own up to my fouls. You can play hard without playing dirty. If a man goes down hard, I am one of the first to help him up or see if he is okay. Most dudes these days are "too cool" to play both ends of the floor and the games turn into a Gilbert Arenas practice session of cherry picking and deep chucking. I don't appreciate folks implying or insinuating things about my character over the WWW.

I play through the contact and fouls on the offensive end because it isn't the NBA and learning to play through the contact down low is a must. I enjoy the challenge. You'll gain more respect though when you are getting hacked and you keep working to get the rebounds and STILL finish the bucket.

I've played with a few NTers on here while in college and in a work league. Basketball is a great yet simple game, damn shame a lot of people don't get satisfaction of playing it in its most purest form.
