How To: Basketball Post Moves (Drop Step)!

By: Coach Rocky

In today’s video I breakdown a great basketball post move that all players can add to their game, the drop step.

This is a very simple move but it is highly effective.

Many players get the misconception that post moves are only for “post players” however these moves work just as effectively for guards.

To master this move, the first thing that you need to do is try to post up as close to the basket as possible. It’ will be very hard to execute this move if your defender is able to push you all the way out to the three point line.

Once you catch the ball you want to stay low, pivot, and take a power dribble. The power dribble is used to gain explosiveness and speed to blow by your man.

As you go by your man, you want to use your body to shield him off and then finish at the rim with two hands so that you can finish with contact.
