Give a pump fake

People seem to underestimate the pump fake now a days. It's easier to do than a crossword puzzle(although I've come across some hard ones)and is probably the most affective technique in basketball. You are standing at the 3 point line with a wide open shot, you see a defender flying towards you, what do you do a) shoot it quickly before he blocks it b) pump fake, let him go by you and take an easier shot. Answer: obviously choice B, do you think I would be praising the pump fake only to pick A?. If the defender doesn't fall for your scheme draw some contact, draw a foul.

Did he just Pump-Fake a Free Throw shot
