Default Things you learned from experience during a game

I wanted to know some personal experience tips people got. Some tips several people told me are:
1: When you're defending a person with the ball, put your body from the person to the hoop
2:They can eye/shoulder/leg fake you but can never hip fake you

I really need to start looking at the hips when I play D... can't ever seem to remember it while playing and it's so basic.

3: when defending a player without the ball, position yourself so that you can keep one eye on your man and the other eye on the ball- by using peripheral vision. You'll always know what's going on and can pick off passes.

4: quickly realize which hand is ur opponents dominate hand and force him to drive to his off hand.

5: when your opponent is dribbling- if the ball is in their left hand it's the perfect time to attempt a poke away. time it, when the ball leaves their hand take a quick poke and then back into position. some people can't react fast enough or don't have the same moves to protect the ball when it's in their off hand.

Sometimes I drive wide, instead of hip to hip. Why? I dont know.

If a player is right handed try to block they're jump shot with your left hand and the opposite if they are left handed

basic but if a player is only a threat when driving give them a bit more room to block of there drive or if there a 3 point slinger get all up in there grill

also i find if im playing against a good player and they are in the triple threat position i leave my hand in there face to block there vision which really annoys people

if your going to give someone an ally off the backboard, make sure you lay it off gently and don't give a chest pass.

Take this image(too big to paste in here): http://thehullabaloo.com/wp-content/.../11/Loyola.jpg

If the defender were to try and block that hook with his left then he could face the opponent and go in front of his body for the block whereas if he uses his right like he has chosen to he is forced to go over the body to get anywhere near the shot at release.

I guess it can be applied to when you're being driven on aswell, if a right hander drives right and the defender tries to block the layup right handed he would have to get around the body of the player or give up the drive and try and swat in onto glass etc.. whereas a left hander, providing they're in a decent stance, is nearly symmetrical to the person driving and can block the shot without going over the body or having to give up space like a right hander would.

Oh I see. Thanks for the explanation.
