Euro Step Finishing Move

In my opinion, the Euro Step is a good finishing move in both transition and in the half court.

I believe that it is important for players to develop moves to finish at the basket against a good or a large (or both) defender they they have practiced and are confident in. The more confidence a player has in his or her ability and moves to finish at the basket, the more they can be the aggressor rather than being dictated to by the defense.

I have posted a couple of videos below that show a couple of ways to apply the move.

The euro step is a good way for a player to avoid picking up a charging foul and also to get a clean look at a layup against a good defender.

In addition to working attacking the basket from straight on, I think it is important to also work on finishing coming from both the left and right side.

Even if you don’t like this move, I hope you will find what works for you.
