It's a difficult question because you can't really teach deking. Deking is the ability to feign 1 move and get your opponent moving out of position defensively with respect to you.

The better you are at selling your fakes, the better you are as a deker. The interesting thing about dekes is, stickhandling is just really half of it. I've seen people who can execute toe-drags, inside-outs, spin-o-ramas on warm ups but have little success within a game because although they got the moves down, they're not selling their fakes well.



(Geez! I thought I could explain it better than this. I know what I'm talking about in my mind but for some reason, I apologize but I can't articulate it well enough.)
