Kill Box Scoring and Counters by Skill Development Coach: Tim Springer
Since the beginning of basketball, players and coaches are always looking for the highest percentage shots to get in games. The kill boxes (blocks, elbows, and mid line) have consistently been those spots.
A player that can get to them and score also put pressure on the defense and allow for wide open perimeter shots and closeout attacks.
The skill development coach drills in the workout are composed of 3 components.
1.) Attacking a kill box and scoring. These are your basic moves. Floaters, layups, and jump shots.
2.) 1st kill box counters are when the defense takes away the kill box from the offense but the scorer is able to make a move to keep their shot alive. Euro steps, spins, and step backs are the counters.
3.) 2nd kill boxes counters are when the defense takes the 1st kill box away and forces the offense to navigate to a different kill box. However, they need to counter another defender once they get there. This is the one that builds high level scorers and play makers. The counters are the same the 1st kill box counters.
Each move should be conducted on both sides of the court and repped constantly daily.
