Finishing or scoring at the rim is awesome!
Figuring out how to score around, through, or over defenders is a game changer for players.
Beating your defender and scoring is necessary. Beating your defender and the helpside defender is demoralizing to defenses.
Watch these two clips of the offensive player driving left. Being efficient with his dribble. And scoring at the rim.
These clips of a player driving baseline left into pull up jumpers.
It's so good. It's so good for several reasons...
#1. His pivoting off the catch. Watch how he front and reverse pivots.
#2. His dribbling. Efficient. 1 or 2 dribbles and then he is making the play. Taking the shot.
Maybe the pull up jumper is not your thing. Maybe driving left is not your thing.

Pivoting is boring! That's what you hear players say all the time, right? At least the younger ones.
Coaches love it! Good and great players USE IT. They pivot! Sometimes more than once.
Watch the clip of Kyle Guy from Virginia. Number 5.
Catches and pivots. Drives hard to the paint and pivots. Then pivots. Then pivots to the rim.
Wow! Four pivots, right? All for a reason.
To create space. To create separation. To create angles for driving and scoring at the rim.
If players want to be better offensively, they NEED to have pivoting and footwork that works for them and the team.

Oh by the way, high school and middle school players that are good or want to be good can benefit from pivoting too. It's a game changer.
