While many of his fellow players are squaring off against team owners or getting jobs at furniture stores to keep busy during the NBA lockout, Dallas Mavericks guard Rudy Fernandez decided to play basketball.

What a novel idea.

As a jump shooter with range to spare, Fernandez — playing for Real Madrid — has been wise to develop an effective pump fake. Watch him use it to draw a defender into the air and then hit a ridiculous no-look, 3-pointer while falling down. Four-point play!

Actually, the referee (clearly not an NBA ref keeping his game fresh) waived off the basket and deemed the foul to be of the non-shooting variety.
