Drop Step Front Pivot Counter

Written by

Drop step 1 dribble counter is a very effective way to create space in the post.

Receiving the ball in the low post, use a drop step to the middle to move your defender to your inside hip. Once done, a front pivot, away from the defense creates space and time for a quality shot.
