DJ Sackmann takes us through a speed stop shooting drill and foot replacement shot.
A lot of players struggle with their timing on the pickup, especially off the dribble. This drill can help players understand that the basketball goes from the left or the right side of your frame into your shooting or guide hand.
Once they understand that movement, it’s easier for them to correctly pick up off the dribble.
This drill can also help players with their timing and hand placement on the basketball. It’s important to be able to have your hands set and ready to shoot on the pickup. The less hand movement on the gather the better.
