Tip of the Week

Sure! This is a challenge, but one that many great players have been able to overcome.

One of the biggest keys is learning to rely on a fake. When you fake effectively, you are able to draw players off their feet so that you can shoot over them or draw a foul. In addition, a fake enables you to drive past them or pass to an open player.

One other underutilized tool is the hook shot, which is very difficult to block, no matter how tall you are.

And finally, I would suggest that you work on developing your opposite hand, which could be a huge advantage in your play.
