Ease off the vignetting and crop tighter on these.

Thanks... I totally understand the vignetting, but which one's need to be cropped tighter? There are a couple that I wanted to show the team, court, and height at which the players are jumping, but on the others I thought it was ideal to have the players, ball, and hoop in the frame?

The only one I'd crop a little tighter on is the last one. I'd crop a big part of the bottom off.

I like the processing you did on these. Some of them need to be straightened - I usually find a vertical edge that is supposed to be plumb and go off of it. #4 has too much noise for my taste - unless it was B&W. I would crop the bottom off of #8 like Jeremy said. Nice work!

Thanks... Yeah #4 was shot @ 12800 ISO (not sure why?). I don't have the knowledge base to remove that much noise I don't think!
