Shot Fake Counter Drop Step Spin Basketball Drill

Shot Fake Counter Drop Step Spin Basketball Drill


This basketball finishing drill will simulate making a good shot fake move to get past your defender and then making a spin move on the second help defender that steps up. This is a game-specific move that you will use during the course of a game.

It is important, though, that you really sell your shot fake and then stay under control as you attack the basket. If you are out of control, you will likely pick up a charging foul when you drive. Basketball drills like this are designed with a specific game movement in mind, so they translate over to a live game situation very well.
