Euro Step Finish with DJ Sackmann. This Finishing breakdown goes over the option of stepping passed the midline with a euro step while showing the basketball to get the big to commit. Players must posses the ability to jump off the outside foot on a quick pickup or step off that outside foot and get to the other side of the rim to finish.
Players struggle with this action because they are used to jumping on one side of the rim to do an up and under. This action can get the big to commit to one side of the rim and allows you to maintain control for finish or kickout options. Jumping early typically leaves you having to make a difficult pass or finish at the rim. This action can give you the same “up and under” effect, but allows you to have much more control.
