its mainly for basketball as well as out door shots of my dogs runing and jumping and that such. i currently have my pentax k-x 18n 70-210-55 kit lens, tamron sp 90 mm adaptall 2, a tamron 70-210 zoom lens. my technique could be a huge problem considering this is my first complete year in photography and im still in high school.

The lens you have are pretty good especially that 90mm.there shouldn't be much reason for it not to do well indoors except it is a little long for tight space.The exif is blocked on the photos you posted,could you add them,would be helpful for someone to advise on what focal length might work better for you and maybe suggest better settings.

Again I'd just be concerned that the Tamron 70-200 (great lens) will be too long for you if you are courtside (the 28-75 sounds perfect). You should know by now though because you are using a 70-210 ! For swimming the 70-200 is going to be the better lens by far.

The shots look fine at the posted size. Could you be more specific about what you think could be improved that a new lens would help with?

Sigma 70/2.8 would do macro and portrait quite nicely. You could add any SMC 50/1.4 for low light.
Samyang 85/1.4 would do low light, portrait, and indoor sports. You could add an A50/2.8 for macro.
