It's when a player "sells" a foul by throwing themselves backward or exaggerating the contact so that the refs will be more likely to call it. It's a bunch of bs, but players have been doing it for a long time.

When players intentionally fall with little or no contact to bait a ref to blow a whistle in their favor.

heh either way, thank you both for the reply on that. I haven't seen it yet, but it sounds hilarious. :) Though I DO like the addition with the fakeout layup and dunks where they pass it off right under the basket as they go up :)

Visual aid?

To answer the original question, though, no I haven't. I get called for a block every time. But I'm probably just not that good at it.

... for some odd reason, I started using it while playing Defense CONSTANTLY, one game. I would set my guy up to get knocked off by the dude with the ball, his teammates, and anybody else who initiated contact; the cathartic quality of unleashing my inner Ginobli had me laughing so hard I thought I was going to puke, but I only got called for ONE charge during the entire debacle.

The rest of the time, the ref just ignored my antics. Schmuck.
