Crossover Dribble and Shot

The cross-over dribble has become a staple for all great perimeter scorers. These great scorers make it look easy, but see how much goes into this important shot.

The screen when set effectively will always create some problems in a defense. This will allow a brief opportunity to take an open shot. See how we do it in this video.

See the Value of Good Basketball Movement

Anyone that’s had some engagement with the game of basketball understands the necessity of good basketball movement when trying to operate an offense. Even the best trained basketball squads will see their offense stand still occasionally, and there will be several reasons for that. In this particular video I am going to identify the value of good basketball movement to increase scoring options every time down the hardwood.

Good basketball movement at all times will keep the defense in motion. We can go back to military history to see that the defense which is “dug in” is always much harder to attack. Therefore the initiative from an offensive point of view is at all times to keep any defense relocating and wondering exactly where the attack will come from. For basketball that’s quite easy. Defenses have to react to the spot where the basketball is, and if the basketball continues to move any defense must react with it. This leads to breakdowns in the defense that may be attacked, but the timing must be right.

By observing this video you will see how I point out how superior basketball movement will breakdown the defense and then make it very prone to attack. The San Antonio Spurs, as I am going to demonstrate during the video do this very well. Check this out to get insight on the way good teams accomplish this.
