What is blocking in basketball?

When the offender (person on offense) is driving (dribbling toward the basket) the defender may be called by the referee as a block. That is when you are moving with the offender, and you block them by sticking your foot out. A block is considered a foul, so be careful. I would suggest to avoid getting called for a block by picking a spot on the court and getting there before the offender. If you do that, keep your feet on the ground (if you move its a foul) and stand still. The offender will most likely dribble into you, and the offender will be called for a charge (ramming into you) and the offender will get the foul. However, a block could also be a blocked shot or pass. that is when the defender hits the ball in the air. This is sometimes called getting stuffed. If the defender makes physical contact when doing this, then it is a foul on them. If they don't make physical contact, then it is not.

How can you make contested layups in the paint in basketball?

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)...at 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!
