Basketball season is underway, and players who can create their own shot usually get the most playing time. Shake your defender in a nanosecond with a perfectly executed spin move. Use proper fundamentals from Utah Jazz guard Alec Burks to avoid getting stripped and earn wide-open looks at the rim.
Alec Burks’ Spin Move
- Dribble towards partner near hoop while second partner trails you
- Step to left or right, forcing defender in front to follow
- Spin in the opposite direction of the first step and maintain low dribble while trailing partner swipes for ball at waist level
- Drive to the basket and finish at rim with layup
Sets/Reps: 2×10 each direction
Coaching Points: Keep ball low while making move // Start slow and work up to game speed
