What the announcers on television or radio use is often different from what is used on the playground. And different from what even the pro and college players use amongst themselves. I cover a lot of these uniquely "pickup ball" terms in How To Talk American, and leave out most of the announcer terms. Though even there there's many new additions, as in "2 guard," as opposed to shooting guard. "Small forward" is another.... When I have more time I'll really go off on these new additions. For now, I leave it to ADS, Bill Walton and, of course, Bitin' Marv Albert.
