Chris,

Defintely interested in your freelance blogger posiiton. Not sure if have the credentials or credability but i am passionate about player development and study the game in the intimate details, such as the hop vs 1-2...

Can I send you a sample article and tell me what you think?

Thanks for any advice you give,

Scott Hamby

Chris,

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?

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

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..

Scott, 

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.

Chris,

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...

Thanks,

Scott

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.
