Default Re: Posting up

In college you can't dip your shoulder and ram it in to your defender. In the NBA, you get called for it randomly. Dwight does it all the time and only get's called sometimes and mostly when his defender flops.

The way to post without getting called is to stick your but out and back your defender down with your rump. Watch the way Pau Gasol and Kobe back down their guys. Kobe backs down any 2 in the league just sticking his butt into them and getting wherever he wants. You will always be lower than your defender therefore unless they are just a tree or you are weak, you are going to back them down and you won't be fouling.
