Like ball handling, passing, shooting, and finishing - footwork is a fundamental foundation of basketball. In the footwork series we teach a variety of ways to develop good footwork.
The Inside Footwork video below talks about catching the ball with your inside foot. Two things the player needs to do are:
1. As the ball is in the air reach with the inside leg to meet the pass
2. Quickly get your feet down and ready to shoot or make a play.
A ball and a basket - that's all you need for this drill below. Progress through the 4 rounds and get better with each repetition. Repeat on both the left and right side of the court.
