favorite types of basketball games

When I say that I don't mean a game of 5 on 5. Games such as 21, bump, around the world, etc.

My favorite game is 50 other

My favorite game is 50 other than pickup 4's or 5's. Knockout is also really fun.

But me and my boy made up a game in highschool called ghost dog and it's ill. It's a variation on horse with dunk taps played on a lowered rim. Lots of intricate rules and can be played with any number of people.

Favorite Games

Personally I don't care for games such as bump and around the world because they don't prove anything about how good a player you are. You can only learn how good a player someone is by watching them play in a real 5 on 5 game.

Oh yeah I forgot one. My

Oh yeah I forgot one. My friend and I made up a game called 10 seconds and I love that. It's basically 1 on 1 but you only have 10 seconds to score. If you score you win, you miss you go to OT. It makes every shot clutch so it's fun. You can intentionally foul so you can get a shot off too.

the point of this isn't to

the point of this isn't to see if you're good though. You don't play 21 and games like that to see if you're good its just for fun.

y'all ever play 200?

Its a 3 point shooting game and works with like 3 or more people. Each person gets to pick a "sweet spot" and stays there for the entire game and you all shoot 3's in whatever order. If the first person makes a 3, its 20 points and then next person has to make a 3pointer to add 20 more points. If he makes it, then the ball would have 40 on it and the next person would have to make a shot to add 20 more and so on. If he misses it, then that person gets all the points that the ball has until the point. After the missed shot, the next person in line starts from 20 again. Anyone who gets to 200 loses. Last person standing wins the game.

It can be a really quick game if you like 4 or 5 GOOD shooters playing but its competitive. I always like that just to relax and have fun (and some bragging rights)

I like playing a game called

I like playing a game called "Take my Money." It's a plain, good old-fashioned shooting contest for money. One person picks a spot and shoots from there. If he makes it, then the other person has to make it in order to keep his money and take a new shot. It's like horse, but with no trick shots and first person to miss loses.
