If you want to make your offense run smooth, you need to teach your players how to get loose off of their defenders. Lets see what are the highlights of Coach Wooten's drills.
Lets brake the L movement, and explain what needs to be done if you want to receive the ball freely every time. First you get to the low post in a sprint, just to make your defender on watch. Then walk up to the elbow slowly, to get him relaxed, and to keep his body close to yours.
When you come to high post area, put your inside leg in front of your defender, bump him with your but to make him stop moving.
Then, make outside step with your outside leg and sprint to the arc to receive the ball.
When receiving the ball, make your 1st step with outside leg (1), and then rotate the other leg in a back pivot (2).
The second move that we are going to learn is a fake inside pivot. It starts with the sprint towards the low post position, and when your player gets their, he should make a stop with the left foot (if he is coming from the right side of the court).
Then he makes a FAKE pivot move, and as soon the defender is hooked up, he will go the opposite way, to the other side of the court.
For the final drill, we will practice the STEP ACROSS. It is most used when the defense is very motivated and protecting the passing lane aggressively. Take the outside foot on the inside and in front of the defender.
Make a contact and show your outside hand to receive the ball.
Let us see on the video the whole thing.
