Question "Gimmick defenses"

Quote:
Count Udonis Haslem as an old school kind of player that doesn't like the kind of gimmick defenses that coaches like Don Nelson utilize.

"It gets old after a while," Haslem said. "Basketball is supposed to be 5-on-5. People mix all those junk defenses. To me, I feel like that's kind of cowardly. Just play ball."
Could someone please, please explain to me what he means by that? I mean, it looks like English, but I just can't penetrate his meaning...
