Alright so let’s learn the Hakeem Olajuwon Double Fake. Alright so this move is all about the fakes and the footwork which Hakeem was always awesome at both. So you begin with a drive to the basket, now for this fake to work the defender has to be on your back. If not it will be really easy for them to strip the ball on your first fake.. Now that the defender is on Hakeem’s back he’s going to hit them with the first fake where he plants his pivot foot and then extends the ball with his inside hand. This will bait your defender and make them think that they can get a really easy block so they will either leave their feet or get off balance. Next you front pivot back around so that the outside of your hip is facing the basket. As your coming out from your pivot you are going to want to ball fake with 2 hands above your head. This makes the defender think you are about ready to shoot either a jump shot or a jump hook and they leave their feet to contest. And because they are out of position from your first fake they are more likely to really go after this next one to stop you. So now all you have to do is keep your pivot foot down and step through towards the basket to finish the shot. Just make sure that when you shoot you extend the ball out away from the defense so they can’t tip it as they are coming back down. So it’s really not that hard of a combination you just want to do it really really quickly and really sell those fakes that way the defender bites on it.
