Yeah, I'd say to try to find people who have actually played basketball... that way they'll likely take it much more seriously (and thus be more competitive). Ask around, look for city leagues or leagues at health clubs in your area. Having something that is established, such as a league, will be much more competitive than pick-up ball, where you really have no idea who you're playing with, and for what reason, etc.
