It's called 'bonusballing' and most fields regulate against it. The reasons for it could be:
1. To ensure a person has too much paint on to 'wipe'
2. To enflict pain
3. To make them feel better about their own inadequacies as a person, or baller

Remember who they are and next game, get 'em in the 'happy-sack'...then walk up to them and repeat these words....
"everytime I see you bonus ball someone like you did ME the last game, I will increase this reaction by 5 more balls."
