Word on the Street

Fake A Pass, To Make A Pass (feyk ey pas, too meyk ey pas) noun. Fundamental basketball for point guards, saying that you have to use a fake before passing the ball.

Usage example: “Coach always says: ‘fake it before you make it!’ Gotta respect that.”

Word trivia: I thought about this one and it actually makes sence. Not maybe so much when you are on a fastbreak or have a clear lane. But I guess it’s good to fake the defenders first, leaving you open to see what’s going on, and then decide what to do. It clearly cut down the turnovers. The phrase comes from the Celtic-Heat game, where Mark Jackson used it, in respons to a careless pass from Wade.

Now… That’s… how you fake a pass!
