Scoring at the rim sometimes requires crafty and clever ways to finish.
In this video, the player drives hard left from the top of the key, but finishes with his right hand.
On the left side!
It was the right finish.
Because it allowed the player to get the shot off without getting blocked. If the player shoots this with his left hand like a traditional layup, it is getting blocked. Players need to score with either hand on either side of the hoop.
Elevate your game.
Getting to the paint will make plays.
Plays for you. Plays for your teammates. Plays to pressure on defense.
In this video the player does three things that really to an effective drive.
1. Quick Rip - no pausing or slow decisions made at the point of attack.
2. Under Control - the drive is aggressive, but he has total control of his body
3. Reads the D - is able to have vision and see the D helping off his teammate who is open for the dumb pass in the paint.
Programs and coaches have different philosophies on driving, but these 3 done at the right time will result in good things for you and your team.
Keep working hard.
Keep enjoying the game.
Elevate your Game.
