What's the difference between "incoming" and "coming"?
"Incoming" is the act of something coming in, while "coming" is the act of arriving. The word "incoming" generally refers to objects coming towards you at a quick speed and so it is often used as a warning or as a way to tell someone to watch out. "Coming" on the other hand is not really used as a warning for an object which is approaching, but instead is used to mean that something is arriving. Ex: Incoming! The basketball is coming towards you. Ex: Incoming! There's a car behind you!
