How to Perform a shot fake in basketball
In this video, we learn how to perform a shot fake in basketball with Chase. There are three keys to a good shot fake. First, make sure you are on balance and nice and stable. Be in a good dent athletic position, but don't come out and up from your position. Then, you will need to make sure your eyes are to the rim. This will sell the shot and get the defender to buy it, making the defensive player lose focus and position. Last, you want to make sure you keep it tight when you are playing. The ball should be to the chin in a short movement where you aren't extending the ball over your head. This will cut down on the time it takes to perform the shot fake so you can take advantage of the removed focus of the other team.
