Question "Gimmick defenses"

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...
