Anyone ever played street basketball with the locals (Hood areas, cities) for cardio? What's your experiences?

Anyone ever played street basketball with the locals (Hood areas, cities) for cardio? What's your experiences? Been thinking of walking up to some random guys at the courts to play some ball. Cardio is very boring without a purpose.

        Don't. You'll constantly get fouled, which they will never call and call you racial slurs the whole time. Just don't bother.

    Just make sure to clarify that you "have the next game" if you aren't well known in the area so that they don't skip over you by mistake. Most people are generally pretty cool about new people playing at the courts, but it'll be harder to get into games later if you don't show any skill the first time around.

      morons are some of the rudest, most inconsiderate people. They're genetically not able to have empathy. People assume I'm racist because of statistics or whatever but I don't give a shit about any of that. morons are extremely antisocial, angry and rude.

              An anonymous user on a mongolian basket weaving forum? Interact with a black person - no, ANY person, in real life? That would require going outside. Absolutely not.
              Prejudice is born of ignorance, insular thought, tunnel vision. Have fun playing basketball dude here's hoping you get good gains out of it.

                I mean crime statistics don’t lie and I’m always vigilant around blacks because they ARE the people who you’re going to get randomly assaulted/jumped/robbed by. It’s a matter of being pragmatic but you don’t have to be a schizo about it

          He’s right though. Black people are so mean, poor, rude, and racist for the most part. Really any poor people are, most blacks are just poor in America (it’s a fact). So yeah I’ll generalize poor people. They’re scum and I don’t want to be associated with them. Basketball and soccer are pussy poor people sports though. Real men golf, hunt, fish, play hockey

    Assuming you actually play it can be fun. If your by yourself getting into a game might be tricky unless a group has an odd number of guys and they see you shooting they might ask you to play.

      he's right though. Without training cardio at all I foot raced a coworker with a sub 5 minute mile. I was able to keep up with him for short sprints, something like 30-50m. After that I feel like there's not much I could do to get faster, so I continue to not do cardio.

        ok beat him at a 3-10k, there's so much room to improve with endurance and speed

          Why? running isn't cool. For speed, if I can stay within an arms reach of an elite runner with no training that says to me after two years I'll be 10% better. Seems pointless. As for endurance, I prefer muscle endurance. So far I've outworked every guy I've worked with.

              Sure he's faster the longer the distance, but that doesn't matter to me. After the races he told me "You look pretty intimidating. I'd be scared if I saw you chasing me at night". Probably prompted because it was already night out. Keep in mind I don't think running is a waste or that the guy was shit. I went to the gym with him since then. We just fucked around, but he topped out on bench at like 170-180 which was a bit higher than his bodyweight, and was more than I thought he'd do. Yet he couldn't squat because his hips were tight.

              I also said I'd only get 10% better in terms of sprint speed. I could never drastically improve my dash times so I don't train it.

              you can run for 20seconds, try running fast for 1hour

              Why? running isn't cool.

    I just played at the local high school after not playing for about 3 years and not doing any form of cardio for the last 9 months (I've been doing SS). Full court basketball is brutal cardio. That's something I would work up to rather than jump right in. Unless you're already in really good shape it is going to be very difficult.

    I never had a problem being white and playing basetball with and against morons. Just play hard, don't talk shit, and if an argument arises just say "shoot for it, the ball don't lie". It's OK to call it if you get fouled, just call it right away, loudly and clearly. Don't make anything personal and give your teammates and opponents a high five after the game. Pick up basketball is one of few things in which blacks are actually fairly well behaved.

    Good cardio absolutely and most people are chill about you joining, zoomers are alright, it’s the out of shape boomers (who swear they could have gone pro) who get aggressive for no reason.
    Ignore them and you’ll be fine.

    Also, I didn’t realise so many phillipinos play basketball in the hood kek.

    I live in philly and wouldn't advise you to go to any "hood areas" and just walk into a pickup game. This isn't the movie white men can't jump. Your best bet is to find an actual indoor court or join a rec league. I just shoot around abd chase my brucks for cardio yes, but i prefer low key spots
