attempt to fake out the defender just like you would on a jumpshot. go up for the layup and bring the ball up high with both hands (grip it tightly) and right when the defender jumps and swings his arm to block it , swing the ball down in a circle (clockwise or counter) this point the defender can no longer block it so now bring the ball back up and lay it up as you always would... and dont be afraid to get bumped becuase more than likely the defender will either back up so a foul isnt called, or he will bump you hard which will cause a foul anyways!

How does basketball help you?

Well there's a lot of answers for this one. Here they are: # It helps you stay fit. Basketball is a very pacing game. You use your leg muscles to run. And your arm muscles to help shoot the ball. You also need aim in it, and basketball is the perfect game for that. # Basketball improves your strategy. You have to make lots of plays according to the situations. For example, if there's 5 seconds left and your team is down by 1, you have to make plays to help get a good contested shot. # It's fun to watch. Very fun.
