Basketball Pump Fake Drill

Nice video from Drew Hanlen that helps players work on their basketball pump fake. In the video Drew Hanlen explains the only two things that really matter when utilizing a shot fake.

  1. The player’s posture
  2. The players’s hand positioning on the basketball

Essentially the goal, as you of course know, is to make the pump fake look as much like a real shot as possible. Drew Hanlen does a good job of breaking it down in stages so players can learn to properly utilize a basketball pump fake step by step. Take a look at the video and let us know what you think.

Any Thoughts, Coach?
