Can't see youtube from this computer. However, from the comments, it looks like everyone is pretty much making fun of the guy who posted the video, and telling him he has no clue wtf he's talking about.

Every time I have ever heard the term "streetball" (which is not very often) it is in reference to some variation to recball (essentially the same way that streetball in basketball is played). Maybe it's just a local colloquialism, or maybe the OP is just trying to sound like who knows more than everyone for giving a new definition to an obscure term.

not at all. it is sorta like streetball (basketball). its usually a certian day or night at a field where admission is discounted to increase players. there usually are no refs or atleast where i play. you play with people who are above and below you in skill level. for example pro players from arsenal and semi-pro players for arsenal evolution play streetball sometimes where i play. it is a learning experience. everyone helps and teaches each other how to play better. since there really arent any real rules it makes it alot more fun and brings alot of people together and everyone just has a great time.

Basically he is saying streetball is playing for the love of paintball. Its not for looking cool on pbnation, r posting sweet vids on youtube and getting 1000 views. Its to play bc you love it and its the only thing you want to do. You just go out there every weekend and just have a good time with some of the best friends you could ever have. The only friends that would ever share your passion and understand you. Its pretty much like soul skaters from the movie brink lol. if anyone has seen that. It might be to old school for some of the newer guys. Just do it for the love of the game and nothing else

^^^^ Lol not really different parts of the country use different slang. So its just like calling a middle eastern person hodgie, habib, sand nigger, towel head, stuff like that. Different words for the same thing! Thats the beautiful part of slang lol. I dont think its ppl trying to be cool or anything.
