One problem many young players face and something the pro’s have perfected, is the ability to create space by setting up your defender for a move. In this drill I taught our players to jab at the rim to get the defender off and then jab in another direction to get the defense to recover to a side.

Once you get the defense to a side you can then make a move and attack.

Utilizing coaches/managers/teammates with pads in areas where the player will experience contact enhances this drill to the fullest. The coach/manager/teammate on the ball try to slap at the arms/ball to teach your players to be strong with the ball when jabbing and ripping through for a move.
