A lot of times in transition big men are taught to run right down the center of the lane to the front of the rim, this is called a rim run. If the post can beat his/her man up the floor this can create easy scoring opportunities, if the post player can catch and finish. The transition rim run power dribble basketball finish drill is designed to simulate a post player running in transition down the center lane. He/she is going to receive the pass but because of the angle or the speed of the pass the player is not able to just catch and finish without a dribble. This is where the power dribble comes in. It will allow the post player to gather themselves and finish under control rather than just throwing up an off balanced layup off the backboard.
