The TRUTH about Sports

Don’t Jump Bitch

pump fake onthebuzzer.comThe wretched pump fake rears it’s ugly head again. On Wednesday night, Chauncey Billups of the Detroit Pistons baited Celtics‘ Tony Allen in biting on his pump fake and fouling Billups with .10 seconds left, essentially losing the game. How many players have fallen to this ploy. Being an Los Angeles native, we have 2 of the inventors of the PF (that’s short for pump fake) playing at Staples. Old timer Sam Cassell from the Los Angeles Clippers has been fooling playas for years. And who can forget Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, probably the best at this “move.” I can understand a big man pumpfaking another big, as the momentum of his body going one way is hard to stop. But a shooting guard? A point guard? Falling for this move time and time again, I mean c’mon. The Celtics are lucky that this wasn’t a playoff game. Then again, what was Tony Allen doing on the court in the final seconds of that game anyway. Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on you.

  1. OK guys, post season is over, it’s time to remember your wife or girlfriend. Maybe you better make up for ignoring her for most of January. How about a Valentines gift from 1-800-Flowers.com (http://www.1800flowers.com)
