The Original Lebron James' Scoring Mentality, The Act of Immediacy, and How Reading (Locating) the Defense Could Hurt Your Game
As always, Don Kelbick offers some unique insights into the game of basketball.
Here are some key points from the audio:
- Act immediately. The more you study (read or locate the defense), the more the defense gains an advantage.
- Take what the player is comfortable with and work from there. If he is comfortable with a drop step middle, have him drop step middle.
- Add counters to what he is comfortable with. That way, if the defense takes away what he is comfortable with, he has a counter.
Two counters to the drop step middle could be 1) Drop step, inside pivot counter, jump shot and 2) Drop step, inside pivot counter, dribble layup.
