I have always loved one on one... not so much for offense, but for defense. Offensively it's really only good for the post because if you get by your man, there is probably going to be help, and that's just not there in 1 on 1. 21 is much better for offense IMO... but worse for defense because you know you have help (rather than not knowing if you really do or not). Generally you will be 1 on 1 in the post tho so it's a great tool for getting your post game up. You can practice all the post moves you want, but most of the time there is going to be contact on those moves and you have to be able to adjust to it. I can make little drop step lefty hook on the baseline with no defender with pretty good consistency... but when I'm being guarded, having to spin off of someone, that body contact, it throws off the shot... So I need to keep practicing with someone on me so I get it.
Thanks for the one-foot squats link.

In terms of developing man-to-man defense and effective dribble moves, I'm going to go ahead and throw out "one-on-one-on-one" too. I run it differently than just "21". In my mode, it's a revolving game of one-on-one. Player A (offense) will face Player B (defense) to start. If Player A scores, he stays while Player C will revolve in on defense.

The difference here is that once the defense grabs the board, the play becomes dead. If Player A shoots and Player B rebounds, the ball is checked up top where the roles are reversed (Player B takes his turn on offense against Player A).

It seems like it'd be an easier version of one-on-one but somehow, by checking up on each changed possession, all the energy of both players is centralized and focused upon the one-on-one matchup. There's no worry about energy conservation. What this yields is ultra-competitive exchanges on each possession, forcing creativity, execution and exertion every play.

Default Re: What drills to you do guys do when you practice?

i have a specific routine. first, i start with form shooting. start at the first hash in the paint directly in front of the rim. i make five swishes in a row before i move back to the second hash, and i make five swishes again. then i move back to the last hash and i make five more.

next i do straight ball handling drills. i have a number of two ball drills that i do. i also lay on my back and dribble on my side and behind my head.

after ball handling comes midrange jumpers. i do the ray allen drill +1, -2 from the elbows. great drill that i recommend to anyone.

from there i'll work on whatever moves i feel i need to for that day/week. practice runners with both hands, crossovers into pull-ups, post moves, etc. anything that will make me a more dynamic offensive player.

Summer workout.

I love the chairs, especially when I'm getting a little bored of workouts I just practice with my chairs, makes things a little more exciting when I'm practicing

There's no worry about energy conservation. What this yields is ultra-competitive exchanges on each possession, forcing creativity, execution and exertion every play.

Yea that's the way I like to play one on one too if there is 3 people... and I like to mix it up by being in different situations i.e. being given the ball in the high post, low post, baseline 3, etc. I start out at all different positions on the floor, pick my spot that I want the ball, and then have player C pass it to me... That way, we can practice sealing our guy, V cutting to create space to receive the pass, etc. It also incorporates passing as well. Player C needs to give a good pass... and that's practice as well. IMO if have 3 people, that's the best all around way to practice... 21 to me is a better way of practicing how to score (because of the help D)... but you aren't ever going to magically start out with the ball at the top of the arc in a game.. so it's good to practice other (game) situations

The way we are talking about with the player ABC rotation, this is better for the offensive player because every defender you face is going to be at least somewhat fresh. There won't be any lazy defensive plays where the guy gave up because he was tired. There is too much pride involved when you have energy there definitely will be lazy offensive plays tho, especially if someone scores 4 or 5 in a row... but that's when you have to push through the fatigue.

10 Free Throws
Do Around the body dribbling drill one minute/Do where you dribble ball with fingers in front of you called up the ladder one minute/Do squeeze the banana drill where you squeeze basketball one minute/Do figure 8 no dribbling one minute/Do catch catch under legs one minute/Do figure 8 dribbling/Do reverse figure 8 dribbling/Do through the legs dribbling infront and back one minute/Do spider drill one minute

Practice passing by 10 overhead passes/10 behind the back/10 bounce pass/10 chest pass

Practice each move 15 times:crossover/double crossover/in and out/spin/reverse spin/under the leg/behind the back/

Make 5 shots from each move/Pass 5 times from each move

50 free throws

off topic:HELP ME CLEAN IT UP PLEASE. I think I'm practicing excessive stuff.


incorporate your dribble moves with a shot or lay up, you'll save time

you should get a buddy or someone to help you with those passing drills, i think it's good to have but precise passing can't really be practiced if you just bounce it off the wall because most of the time, your team mates are moving, you wana hit them with a precise pass without them chasing the ball

lastly, work on your defense, i dont have it in my routine and but that's probably the most important thing that can help your game. do some slides, quickness drills, keeping the hands up ...etc.

Default Re: What drills to you do guys do when you practice?

I usually play 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 3 on 3, or 5 on 5 at the gym. I guess that covers my defence training/basketball iq training. I changed mine to the following:

5 minute warmup

10 shots from 5 places with one hand shooting practice (sometimes it takes 20 minutes because my backyard has a lot of junk in it and I have to manuever around them so I guess I need to change this into something else).
5 minutes of overhead /behind the back/bounce/chest passing to specific targets

10 minutes of around the head/torso/feet then up the ladder/then figure 8 and reverse figure 8/ then do it with dribbling/then crab dribbling/then spider

make at least 50% of freethrows with making at least 10 shots(so max I could miss is 20 and I also do them more close up because need to get more used to do new form and I if I try to do at the free throw range, it will mess up).

do 10 random ingame situations and make 10 shots for each

make 20 close up(will change to real free throws once I get used to do the form) free throws and maintain at least 50%

do 10 random ingame different situations and make 10 shots for each

make 30 close up free throws with at least 50%

Default Re: What drills to you do guys do when you practice?

I'm 14 and these are the drills I do:

Circle Drill: Set up 4 cones along one sideline, 1 at half-court, another at the corner of half-court and the sideline, and finally three cones side-by-side right outside the paint. I do an in-and-out move on the first three, spin move on the 4th sideline cone, stepback crossover in between that cone and the halfcourt one, a double-move at the halfcourt cone, and a behind the back or spin move at the halfcourt-sideline cone, and finally a move going hard to the basket on the final one, such as a Euro-step, reverse, floater in the lane, etc.

Ball Handling Drill: Don't know what it is called, but my dad sets up a cone a couple feet from the 3pt-line and then one at the elbow. I then do a basic crossover at each cone and go hard to the basket at the end. Then I continue to do more moves like between the legs, behind the back, spin move, double moves, and stepback crossover.

Touch Shots: Do at least 5 little touch shots from right in front of the basket, then move back, repeat, do both blocks, and finally have to make 20 free throws. I then do baseline and wing shots.

Double-Move layups and off the dribble jumpers.

Game Situations: Act like I'm bringing the ball up like a 1 and make a move, pass it to the big man(my dad) and cut to the basket, or pop a 3.

Spot-up shooting.

Then I usually run a game with whoever else is shooting around in the gyms, and I also play with the older guys on Sundays and Wednesdays, when many of them are up there.

I tried it, but it is a little to advance for me, I need something more basic. I have trouble making a regular set shot, now your going to tell me to take step backs when i am off balance, to advance.

When practicing shooting, I usually shot the ball where the ball ends up after a miss or make.

going around the 3 pt arc, must make 7/10 to advance to next spot, keep going until you dont make the cut, then its the next persons turn. first one to go baseline to baseline wins. if you really want to work on your stroke play where you can only make swishes.
