About This Play/Drill

As part of #PlayerDevelopmentWeek I am putting together a series of drill progressions that we use in order to develop skills to fit our Dribble Drive Motion Offense. In this first installment we are looking at developing "Dribble Attacks." These are quick and simple dribble attacks that we emphasize in both the half court and transition settings. Mainly we are looking at attacking a defender who is isolated in the elbow or slot area. We would like our players to make a quick aggressive move and attack that defender to the rim. The three "Dribble Attacks" that we teach are 1) In & Out Dribble, 2) Hesitation, and 3) Crossover. 

The 1v1 Dribble Attacks Drill Below is a simple drill but one that will combine Dribble Attacks and Finishing at the Rim. The two versions represent two common tactics; sagging defenses and overly aggressive on-ball defenses.
