When it comes to skill development, most NBA players turn to the same skill trainer: Rob McClanaghan.
In this presentation, Coach McClanaghan takes you through the same post development drills he uses with his NBA players. Players learn to create scoring opportunities with their back to the basket, catching and facing up, duck-ins, rebounding, and trailing the play. With this new arsenal of post moves, your players – regardless of position – will become versatile, skillful scorers.
Back to the Basket
Coach McClanaghan starts out working close to the rim, which builds the skills players need to progress and score further away from the rim. With every move and drill, he outlines the details that players need to successfully beat their defender and score around the rim using no dribble, one dribble, or a combination of the two. For every go-to move, Coach McClanaghan teaches a countermeasure to keep the defense off balance. In the “Turnaround Series,” players learn to be patient, stay low, use effective footwork, and work slow to fast to beat their defender every time in the low post.
Catch and Face
Coach McClanaghan shows you how to be an offensive threat when facing the basket. As players move away from the low post to the mid post, they need to catch and square up in order to create move-scoring opportunities. All of the drills that Coach McClanaghan demonstrates can be used on the perimeter to make your post players a balanced scoring machine. By utilizing the “Jab Step,” he creates a series of moves and counters that allow players to rip and attack the basket using a spin back, 1-2 shot, or pushback shot for open looks.
Duck-Ins, Rebounding, and Trail Shot
Coach McClanaghan finishes building the complete post player by teaching how to use a duck in move and rebounding moves to improve finishing skills around the rim. Being able to score quickly and finish strong around the rim is crucial for any post player with a defender in their face. By emphasizing “holding the seal,” any post player will gain a true advantage while executing these moves. Coach McClanaghan shows a great rebounding drill that is not only effective with finishing after gaining the board but also helps develop the quickness and hand/eye coordination necessary to have success on the boards. As your post players run the floor, they must be able to put the ball on the floor and create a scoring opportunity using a jump shot. Coach McClanaghan demonstrates a jump shot drill that can be used to condition post players.
If you want an effective program to build your skills as a post player, this DVD is the tool for you. With post-up moves, face-up attacks and perimeter work you can gain a significant advantage over your competition. Coach McClanaghan gives you the drills, and a guideline for how to put together an effective workout.
