Hop vs 1-2, which way do you teach a player to shoot off the dribble?
I was personally comfortable with either. I have trained two players successfully to use the hop, but now have gone back to one two. Most kids are not there in terms of balance.
I do ask player curling into the elbow from the low post to receive with a hop and shot when possible. We have seen alot of success with that approach.
Great question! How about you?
I teach a little of both when mentoring a shooter. I had been shooting with terrible footwork my whole life until I watched some videos. As soon as i applied some techniques, my shot became much more consistent. Even though I don't play competitively anymore, I use shooting workouts to get some exercise. I think it helps as a coach to be able to demonstrate what you're talking about at full speed.
I prefer the hop when waiting weakside for a pass, or coming off a curl off a pin-down screen. I like the 1-2 and pivot-square-up in the mid-range off the dribble with the excpetion of pulling for a three in transition. I use the two-foot hop there, I get better balance and lift. Using the 1-2 in that situation, I had a tendency to pitch forward into my shot.
I see most players planting off the wrong foot when using the pivot-square-up or the 1-2, the tendency is to plant off the outside foot instead of the inside foot.
Can I send you some links to some videos I made for a coaching friend of mine? he needed some workouts for his guards...They;re not exactly flawlessly executed but the demo gets the point across...
Send away. Let's not let the perfect get in the way of the good. It would be great if Jordan decided to teach the kids, but Hubie Brown made alot of crappy production quality, high content value videos. Nobody taught the drop step like him.
here's the first, this is a inside-outisde workout, you have to make a outside shot (12 ft and out) before going inside and performing either a drop step or up and under (alternating). Make 6 of each type of post shot. Alternate floors sides and post blocks..
Second video is a great workouts for perimeter players, Don't think i need to explan this one much, but you can change the shots by making the layups off eurosteps
This is a good template to build your own workouts
Links don't appear to be working.
Good stuff. take a peek over at www.basketballhq.com and let me know what you think of that site.
That site is awesome! especially like the plays section..
LOL on the Hubie Brown comment, i actually watched some of those as a kid, i think a young Kenny Anderson was in one of them. Do you remember when Hubie said to wipe your hands on your socks before shooting free throws?
