AWESOME Shooting Drill For Basketball Players To Get A Wet Jumper

shooting drill for basketball

Here is a new shooting drill for basketball players looking to work on there ball handling and pull up jumper and their retreat dribble.

I’ve recently been using drills that incorporate the retreat dribble aka back dribble you’ll see in this video.

I don’t think that it is something that you should use often as it adds more dribbles to your possession, but it’s and awesome skill to have to limit your turnovers and to be more mobile with the dribble.

To execute this drill simply attack one of the elbows out of triple threat or off of a live dribble.

When you reach the elbow stop and plant with your inside foot all the while protecting the basketball.

From there you will be back dribbling while still protecting the ball.

When you get back to the top of the circle (this is a triangle shaped drill) make a low crossover and change directions on the defense.

You now can get into your pull up jump shot at the other elbow.

You can either take one dribble after the crossover and pull or you can pull right out of the crossover.

Once you go and get your rebound you are going to repeat the same thing attacking the elbows from the other direction.

Here you obviously won’t shoot because you’re now facing the opposite direction, but you will reset, turn around, and repeat into the pull up jumper again.

This drill can also be done from other angles and you can shoot step backs instead of pull ups as well.

I hope you liked this one guys.

It’s been a while since I released some shooting stuff .

Please share this if you liked it and I’ll catch you next time.
