Whatever position that you play in basketball you need to be able to finish around the basket. The progression basketball Mikan drill is going to work on four different types of finishes around the basket, and is a great drill to use to warm up. It is important that you can finish in a variety of ways around the basket because it will help prevent the shot blocker from lining up your shot. Also, being able to use the rim to protect your shot will be a huge tool to getting your shot off.
Along with learning to finish better, this basketball drill will help the player develop their footwork. So whether it is a younger player that has trouble lining up their feet, or a big man that needs to develop better footwork around the basket, this is a great drill to use.
