Dr. Hal Wissel’s Basketball Shooting: Creating Your Shot Off the Dribble is a great DVD for players and coaches. Players will learn to create their shot of the dribble and coaches will learn to teach players moves and drills for shooting off the dribble.
Coach Wissel teaches players how to pick the ball up off the dribble using key words that trigger correct shooting mechanics. Key words of “Front and Top” are emphasized to promote picking the ball up in front of the shooting knee (preventing floating) with the shooting hand on top of the ball (fostering back spin). Coach Wissel also teaches players how to create space away from the defender when driving to the strong-hand side and weak-hand side.
Drills in Basketball Shooting: Creating Your Shot Off the Dribble include: shot fake jump shot, step-back jump shot, step-through leaner, drive middle jump shot, drive middle step-back jump shot, step back and drive, drive middle runner, drive middle reverse down lane hook, drive baseline jump shot, drive baseline step-back jump shot and drive baseline reverse middle hook. Drills to improve finishing with either hand include: reverse lay-up, hook and runner.
Players are also taught to chart their improvement using daily progress charts.
