Don’t use fabric softener, which will slicken the nets! You want the nets tight, but if they’re too snug, the ball stays in the net, like in the original peach baskets. Too retro. Says Tom Tolbert: “The Celtics back in about ’89 had some old guys, like Dennis Johnson and Robert Parish, and they didn’t want teams running back on them off their own made baskets, so they had these extra-thick nets, thicker than anything you’d see anywhere else in the league. ” HOW TO GET YOUR OPPONENT TO CHOOSE THE WRONG BASKET On your home court, you always have a favorite end.

He’d just go to the hole and throw up a shot and scream, and the ref would put him at the line. “I wouldn’t abuse it or overuse it. ” Offensive Flop Defensive Flop Defensive Flopping The key is to make it look like you established sound defensive position and got hammered. Tips Just before contact, subtly shift your weight from the balls of your feet to your heels, so you look solidly planted and stable, but you can be knocked back easily. While staggering backward, act as if you are trying to maintain your balance and not fall.

But if the ref doesn’t blow the whistle and reward you with the call, you’re no hero, you’re roadkill, and your opponent has a clear path to the hoop. So you give the ref a little help. Others may place the negative label of “flopping” on your move, but we prefer to think of it as assuring that justice is done and that hard, honest work is rewarded—as a result of acting. As Shakespeare observed, we’re all actors. People generally want to believe in the honesty of people, and you can take advantage of that weakness.
