If there's one thing I absolutely cannot stand, it's a guy who is just there to goof around and give a half-assed effort. Putting aside whether you take the league seriously, you owe it to your teammates (and the other team for that matter) to play hard and give your best effort at winning. Even if you're a D-league plug. Uncompetitive players diminish their teammates and waste everyone's time, energy and money.
Agreed! We're all there to have fun but when they're keeping score and you're all wearing the same jersey, competition becomes part of it. I understand doing whatever you want during pick up, but it's disappointing to see people treat their team and league like a joke.
