This basketball post move drill is designed to work on a particular game situation shot. Just like you would practice a jump hook shot, it is important as a post player to practice shooting a pick and pop shot.
This basketball drill will help the player work on the fundamentals of the shot and then help cement those fundamentals with lots of repetition. That way, the move will be able to translate into gameplay. You are not going to do this drill for conditioning, but you will focus on doing it the right way every time and doing it just like you would in a game.

Goals of the Drill
- Practice the fundamentals of setting a good ball screen and then popping for the shot.
- You can either chop your feet into the screen or jump stop into the ball screen.
- Make sure that you practice holding the screen for a second before spacing for the shot.
- When you pop after the shot, you can do it 1 of 2 ways; first, you can open up your body to receive the pass as you space, or second, you can turn and half run, keeping your shoulder primarily to the basket.
- Be stepping into your shot as the basketball is getting to you, don’t catch and then load for the shot.
Basketball Drill Instructions
- You can do this basketball shooting drill anywhere on the 3 point line, but the partner will have the basketball, and the player is going to be about 6-8 feet away along the arc.
- When the coach/partner starts to dribble the basketball, the player will set a ball screen.
- Once the dribbler passes over the screen, the shooter will space for a shot, and the ball handler will make the pass.
- Now repeat the same thing coming back in the opposite direction.
- Continue the drill for the desired amount of time, shots, or makes.
