PEACELOVEBASKETBALL: The Magic of Ball Fakes

A good ball fake can get a player an easy basket or an open pass. It can shift the opponent’s defense and make gaps for the offense. The ball fake is key to making things happen on the basketball court. Whether it’s a shot fake, a pass fake or drive fake, this simple skill works like magic against opponents and can make a huge difference in a player’s game and a team’s success.

Learn more about putting the ball fake to use in my article The Magic of Ball Fakes.

 

PEACELOVEBASKETBALL: Coaches Don’t Know Everything

I’m grateful to have the opportunity to share my coaching experience here on my blog and now with Stack Sports. After nearly 30 years of coaching, and many more playing basketball, I have learned a lot. But the most important thing that I learned, is that I don’t know everything.

I always loved attending coaches clinics because it gave me the opportunity to grow my knowledge. Even with volunteering again as a coach since Covid, I’ve had new surprises and insights. I hope that bits and pieces of my most recent coaching articles, How To Motivate Your Team, How To Teach Leadership and The Best Team Building Activities, will augment your knowledge of the game. Enjoy!
