Pinch Post Moves: Shot Fake Crossover Drive Bank Jump Shot
By Hal Wissel 

Imagine that your defender is playing you for a jump shot with his hand is up. Make a crossover step and push a long dribble out with your outside hand, the one away from the defender, and then push off your pivot foot. Aim the dribble for a spot at a 45 degree angle with the backboard. Keep your eyes on the target. Protect the ball with your inside hand and your body. Make a jump stop behind the ball aligning your shooting side knee with the ball. Pick up the ball in front of your shooting knee with your shooting hand on top of the ball and your balance hand under the ball. Eliminate reaching for the ball and picking it up with your hands on the side of the ball which leads to sidespin. Aim for the top near corner of the box on the backboard and shoot a jump shot. When driving to your weak-hand side, you have further to jump to align your shooting side knee with the ball. Make a second dribbble (crossover dribble) to the front of your shooting side knee.
