Default A good move for the not so athletic

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eEMPqlIWjo

Yea I know it's just some 11 year olds, but what the coach is saying, is exactly why the spin move is so effective and should be used. As someone who doesn't exactly have a quick step off the dribble, for me, and I'm sure for many of you as well, I am not able to get by my guy consistently and many times he is on my hip. Instead of settling for a jumpshot every time, this move is great because their are so many things you can do with it. You could spin and continue your dribble to the basket or wherever, spin and shoot a little floater or jumper, spin and fade away, spin and pump fake... Watch Dirk and how effective he uses it even as a 7 footer with virtually no footspeed. Other times it can really help is like if the coach said when someone is up tight on you on the perimeter, just simply spin away from them... or while dribbling up the court.

It's so basic and such a simple move, but I don't see many guys using it outside of dribbling up the court. Most guys that aren't super quick and can cross people up or just blow by them don't even attempt to have much of an off the dribble game because they think they can't get by their man. By spinning tho, you can create almost if not just as much space as those guys.

So yea basically when your man is able to stay in front of you, just use the spin... Chances are he's not going to be able to guard your initial drive and the spin. If he's able to recover, chances are 100% that you have still created more space than you would have had giving you room to do another move... or just give up that battle and dish it off or maintain your dribble and try again

Examples of Spin moves:

Another tip. Use it simply as a counter move... otherwise if you are past your guy enough just take it to the rack or find a teammate. Don't like I'm gonna spin here... just react with it. Use it like that, your defender won't ever be able to read it.

I over-use it just because it's fancy but I am quick enough to get by my man tho.

If only I could shoot

I use Dirk/Pierce-esque fade aways. Works perfectly for me. Get contact, create a little space, awkwardly shoot off of one leg in a place no one my size can block

Played the other day and must have used the spin like 5 times and was able to get off a good shot 4/5 and was off balance for the other one. I think I made 2 of them... but what's important is that it got me that good look ha cus I didn't get past my guy at all

Very useful against aggressive defenders that sits on you with their chest. Just sweep-drive right first step, then immediately spin left, using the guy's body to balance your momentum.

Pretty much like the Dirk vs Bosh video.

Yea and when you use your body there is nothing they can do... they are pretty much dead in the water and just hope you miss the shot.

When i'm getting pressured full court my main movement to protect the ball and still advance on the court is spin moving .. not the explosive move, but the one with protection.

Yea dude and really it's the safest most energy efficient way to get it up the court. Let the other guard waste energy trying to defend it.

like the ove and use it as described but I disagree about the other type of spin move. I use that in fast break situations to go around a slower moving defender. Like Micha describes

I love the spin-move. I normally play in the paint which is why the spin-move is important to me.
