Breakthrough Camps instructor Jim Huber goes through the drill below. Read more about NBA players that Jim has worked with below the video.
This drill improves your ability to score in the paint, your post moves, and your rebounding.
You also develop first step speed and your ability to change directions explosively.
This is a great drill for all age levels and every position including guards! Many guards struggle defensively in the paint and this is a great way to take advantage of it.
Since you have to make decisions during a game, it's vital to include some drills against defenders to practice this. Almost every offensive play involves a decision against a defender. So you need to work on this!
After you do some 1v0 footwork or post moves drill, this a great time to add it to a practice or workout.
