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.
- The player’s posture
- 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.
