Default Re: Driving the Lane

For me it became a two part problem:

1)Physically how I chose to attack.
2)Mentally how I prepared myself when I drove.

I'm 5'10 150, so I'm a small guy and I play with some taller guys which isn't all a bad thing. After I got over my fear of contact and made the conscious decision to go THROUGH people (because before I was afraid of contact, but if you run at the guys I play with... they give up ground) I was able to drive better.

The second thing for me was just getting low. I got real good at getting my body low and a few hard dribbles and a burst of speed would have me by the guys guarding the paint.
