USE YOUR DRIBBLE EFFICIENTLY NO DANCING OR EXPLORING.


BE EFFICIENT WITH YOUR DRIBBLE

"This is basketball, not figure skating. You don't get extra points for degree of difficulty" - Bob Hurley

Here is a player's dribbling sequence on the wing... • Dribble through the legs 3 times. • Crossover. • Dribble through the legs 2 times. • Crossover. • Behind-the-back step-back three-pointer. And the shot was easily blocked by the defender (who barely even had to move)...

"What should he have done instead?"

Probably just passed to a teammate and continued the offense... But if he had to score in a one-on-one situation. • Squared up to the hoop. • Read the defender. • If they have space, shoot. • If the defender is too close for an open shot, use a shot fake or jab step and then use 2 - 3 dribbles to create a scoring opportunity.

Definitely not dance around with the dribble. That's not effective basketball.
