Icky Shuffle Partner Line Footwork Basketball Drill

Icky Shuffle Partner Line Footwork Basketball Drill


This is a really advanced basketball footwork drill that will help you to develop light feet. Most big men struggle with good footwork, and some of the other positions as well. Using basketball drills like this will translate into making a post move with the right footwork or coming off a down screen and getting your feet set the right way.

Anytime you can set yourself up with a good bass before shooting or finishing around the basket, you are drastically going to improve your chances of the ball going in the basket.
