About 10 years ago, I used to play basketball with a guy who'd do that regularly. He was a solid basketball player but typically had awful shot selectionóloved forcing faders from the baseline.
If he ever got me to bite on a pumpfake, he'd often jump into me and call a foul. I kind of get that because if he'd lost his dribble, it was maybe a means of bailing himself out. But considering there's no free throws or anything, it always felt weird to have him purposely kill the play by diving into me.
Worse, he'd occasionally pull off the same move while I was grounded, where he'd step into my body and again, call a foul. That's usually when the arguments began. I bit through my tongue and bled everyone after catching a step through from him on one occasion; that was probably the peak of our rivalry, haha.
