After getting great feedback and tips from you guys, I was back on the court to try again! I think it went better this time! Some things I tried based on your comments:
-I stayed on the baseline either under the basket or to the right side.
-I wore kneepads this time(To the embarrassment of my wife!) and got down low for most of the game.
-I also used my 50mm on my second body for a short time, but it had trouble focusing compared to the 24-70, so it only lasted one half.
-I used my 70-200 even when action was closeto me and tried to zoom in more
-I cropped into the players/action more in post


Shot with D7000 with the 70-200/2.8 and D90 with 50/1.8 and 24-70/2.8

3. Shooting right under the basket was an interesting, and fast paced place to shoot from!

4. It also gave great height to all the vertical action!

Have you guys noticed how different the files off two different cameras can be?? The ones from the 90 and 7000 look totally different, and I had to process things like white balance and contrast completely different.

I learn everytime I shoot, and from your feedback as well, so feel free to give feedback/critique, and thanks for looking and helping me improve!
