For a big man, scoring in the high post can be an excellent tool, and that is exactly what this basketball shooting drill will work on. If they can flash hard to the high post and get a catch as the defender is still closing out, it puts the defender at a disadvantage. This is because big men are not used to closing out and typically don’t have the best footwork.
That is why this jab step shot move can be so effective if learned and done the right way. This basketball drill will simulate a game situation shot where a post player is going to flash up from the opposite post, get a catch, jab step the defender, and then shoot the basketball. It takes pretty good footwork to use this move, but once learned can be deadly.
