Learning to face pressure, and then be able to rip through past the defender is exactly what this triple threat pro hop basketball drill is going to work on. The reason it is called face the fire, is because you have to stand up to the defender and face the pressure while you are in the triple threat position. If the defender makes you fall back on your heels, turn your back, or waste your dribble, they win. You must be strong enough to face the pressure, and then make them pay for over pressuring you.
Only after you have done this will the defender respect you, and give you your space because they are tired of getting driven past. This basketball drill also works on finishing past the help defender as well, because any good defense is going to rotate a second defender to help on the drive. Here is where the pro hop move comes into play.
