Pump Fakes: A Tale of Two AAU Coaches, Brothers, Mentioned in "Play Your Heart Out"

Click here for a relatively recent article about David and Dana Pump, two players in the game of coaching elite youth basketball players and steering them to college.

They describe themselves as cowboys and contend that they're "people" people and that others get jealous of them. Perhaps, but consider whether instead of cowboys they're bold pilots in a world that's increasingly policed by the lasted fighter technology the NCAA superpower can muster.

There's a saying that goes something like this about Air Force pilots: "There are old pilots. There are bold pilots. There's no such thing as an old, bold pilot."

Pump up the debate now.

Useful facilitators or leech-like middlemen?
