Default Re: Scalebrine DESTROYS Boston's best street ballers

Not doubting Scal's one on one skills, but the second guy fails at one on one.

You always, I repeat always want to start as close as you can, and with the triple threat position. The guy doesn't do any of that, he starts off 3 foot behind the three point line and dribbles straight away.

When you do that it makes it easier for the defender to check you and expend less energy straight away, as they don't have to watch out for the pump fake or the jab step.

Scal always start off at the three, adds a couple of pumps and jab steps...

Go watch a couple of Kobe one on ones, exactly the same thing. Never dribbles 3 foot behind the three.
