    The art of the pump fake

    It doesn't seem like anybody utilizes the pumpfake anymore. I think it would help clyburn a lot, once he gets by his man come to a jump stop and then pumpfake. I'm tired of seeing him get blocked out of bounds by the help defense.

    Did you see the OSU game? Cyclones were pump faking Cowboys out of their jocks and taking it to the hole that whole game.

    Ejim uses it all the time, but no one respects his outside shooting so it's all for not.

    I can't get over the offensive improvement Ejim has shown when he handles the ball on the perimeter. It's amazing how doing the little things like always catching the ball in an agressive, triple-threat position, knowing when to pump fake, being consistent and not off-balance with your jump shot can make you a more dangerous offensive weapon. He's really been key to the offensive success of this team being so difficult to defend.

    And to the OP, I agree that a lot of other players these days are too content to put up shots that either draw a foul or are blocked. Too many offensive moves these days involve blindly driving with the ball making no effort to avoid defenders.
