Flopping in pick-up games.....WHY? - Page 3

post #61 of 126
Moving screens when it's game point or about to be game point and a dude blatantly OD's on a moving pick is going to be called a lot of the time. That's not "playing tough"...that's just not part of the game of basketball. And for the dude talking about some guy that plays D2 basketball and plays at the gym with you guys and makes some of these calls.....yeah, that's because he plays organized basketball not fake tough guy weekend warrior pickup games. Dude isn't trying to go out there and get hurt by some bums and not be able to play in games that really matter. Most the time when a moving pick is called the offensive team gets to keep the ball, the point just doesn't count. It's not that complicated...just score the ball again while playing within some basic rules.

I say that **** all the time when I see that someone has the 1 v 1 advantage and they have the ball. Encourages ppl to get the hell out the way so dude can work

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

Agree with everything in this post.

It tends to get ugly when guys play pick-up ball like it's football because they think there's some rule that they can't ever be called for a foul because it's "pick-up ball."

Fights always start because the guys with no skill want to hit, grab, hold, etc. to even the game up. Then those same guys want to call people a pussy, female dog, etc. when they get called for an obvious foul.

Not to generalize but I've noticed that people from New York or the DMV area like to argue and fight over calls the most.  Anybody else notice that?  I hate playing with dudes like that.  It makes the game last too long.

This.

 

I'll never take the possession on a moving screen but I'll definitely stop play if it's some OD stuff.  Some dudes don't even know you can't move while screening and just try to push you.  Football players and military guys are often the biggest offenders of this.

im the type of cat on defense where you might wanna call a foul especially on game point..but what kills me is that people trip because I hand check when they see they can't do anything against me or when they shoot i might hit their wrist after the ball is relased eyes.gif come on now get real..and they wanna call little pansy calls...I never call fouls even when its obvious common sense shouldn't have to be explained

I am pretty sure it is likely competitive basketball area. Chicago, Detroit, LA.

But yea dudes in DC can spend too much time arguing man. I usually sit back and wait. Never get involved in that foolishness.

And YES I foul if the game is on the line. Intentional foul. I won't try to hurt the dude but you aren't getting a wide open shot for game point.

Yup, usually the same guy that stands in the paint for 20 minutes and expects you to do nothing about it.

Idk why, When me and my friends play at my schools rec center, or when im back home its normally just calling those really hard fouls and illegal screens. Occasionally you get the kid who just gets touched and yells out FOUL every single time he slashes in..

mean.gif play it straight up on jump shots.  I can agree with DC for fouling on a wide open lay-up.  But if you foul on purpose for shooting a J you a corn

Guarantee you, that's not an NY thing, it's a you were in the wrong court playing with a bunch of cornballs thing.



Worst thing is to play against hicks. They hack all the time and expect to play by DR rules.
