A former number one overall pick in the NBA draft and Kansas assistant coach, Danny Manning breaks down the essential concepts and skills necessary to be a dominant player in the post. Included in his presentation are 20+ technique driven drills and fundamentals that will improve post players offensively and defensively at any skill level.
Proper footwork creates the foundation for great post play. Coach Manning effectively teaches a series of techniques to help any post player improve in this area. Straight flash step-throughs, duck moves and step-between spin moves are all valuable tools in establishing a foundation in the post. Understanding and taking advantage of angles are also key areas covered as Manning works his players down low.
Scoring in the post can change the way a defense has to play the game.
Manning demonstrates various post up moves that will increase your players' arsenal of moves and counter moves to beat any defensive presence on the court. He demonstrates jump hook, rip moves, jab step, step-over moves, cheat step, shot fake, and mid-range shooting moves that will help increase your players' basketball skill and IQ. Learn footwork drills and moves required when your post is off the block facing the hoop and how to catch the ball going away from the basket. Players are taught how to effectively use a cheat step and pull-through move and how to use them before they shoot a jump shot.
Post play is not limited to the offensive end of the court. Manning also teaches the importance of the bigs on the defensive end of the court. With a focus on creating a presence on the court, Manning breaks down how to take over the game defensively. The first concept taught here is understanding the "No Catch Zone" and how to stay in your stance until it's time to "Wall and Maul" the shooter. He finishes the play with a proper and aggressive boxout.
Use your post players successfully all over the floor with Manning's proven techniques!
