When we go to a basketball season with few friends,we have to play with others.Some think we could make friends by that.But when we play with strangers,we rarely enjoy ourselves to the full.DO you like to play basketball with strangers?

We don't if we will have a good time playing with stragers before we play together.Indeed,playing with strangers we will gain other experience and we can also make frieds with them.

Plus how often is it that you get a full game going with 10 friends?? If you play a game with strangers then they came make up the numbers. I went to the court on my own yesterday to get some shooting practice in but I would probably have accepted a game if there were some strangers who asked if I fancied a game.

You can improve your overall game more by playing other people. I would like to play games against people I don't know more than I do now but it often happens like a pick up game when they or us ask if they want to play.

I totally agree, Look at some of the relationships in the NBA that players have developed as team mates when they did not know each other before.

I have had some great games when me and my mates have been playing on court and then some people have come up and asked if they can play. It can improve your game too as you get a different ability playing against you. When you play only with a few people you know then you start to know everything about each others game. ie when they go left or right and when they are likely to rise up and shoot. Playing against more players will enhance your play. That's one of the reasons why the NBA is so strong now as there are 30 teams in the NBA now with varying degrees of greatness.

Yeah a good point, I always see it as a proper competitive game when me and my friends play against other people in a pick up game. When it's just me and my friends we tend to work on our shooting and don't really have a proper game because there's only three or four of us.

It's hard to play with strangers at the beginning. And it depends on your level the his level. To play with someone for a while will make everyone know what's your way to play and what's your position. And then you will be a team to play. But with a stranger, you need to spend time in understanding how he plays and let him know how you guys play. If he is at the same level and you want to open the door to him, it will take about 5,6 games for him to join your team. of course, you need to communicate to each other a lot.

I don't think there is any problem play with strangers.and it's more funny than play with your familiar ones.more,you can improve your skills when play with different level players.

Yeah back in the day I would go to my town's community center and play basketball there all the time. I didn't really know very many of the people there but there were always games of basketball going on and they had a really nice court and everyone there was generally pretty nice too. I haven't really gone all that much recently but if given the chance I wouldn't mind going there.
