Kobe Bryant Pivot Series Shot Fake Reverse Pivot Basketball Drill


This basketball finishing drill is all about learning how to finish with a defender on your hip. Once you get that defender on your hip, they are at your mercy if you have the right moves to finish around the basket. You must maintain control of your body momentum as you drive to the basket.

Probably the most important key to the pivot series is having good footwork. If you don’t have good footwork, you won’t be able to sell your move, and you will most likely travel even if you do. Even if you never use this move in a game, it is still a good basketball drill to work on footwork around the basket and learning how to pivot.
