Would it not be worthwhile to put together a true World Championship series between the NBA and Euroleague champions? The entertainment value, along with international interest in such a event would be tremendous, and the games themselves would serve to settle for once and for all which side of the Atlantic the best basketball is played on.
Basketball Coaching Teaching The Low Post! Whether Im teaching basketball low post drills to a 10-12 year old novice boy or girl or an experienced 16-18 year old, I always start with the same technique tests from the low post. I want to see how they move around the key as the ball moves around the perimeter. I want to see where they stand when they stop and what the path is they took to get to where they stop. I want to make sure they are facing the ball all the while, that their hands are ready to receive a pass and that their body balance is correct to protect the ball and to withstand defensive play. If they have trouble with any of these things, or all of these things, thats where I begin to teach.
The Low-Post Block, This is where we will spend most of our time learning the post/center play basics. I want the player close-in to the basket and as the player grasps skills and progresses, well then move all over the key. Starting with a good stance and feet placed outside the lane line, I want the players low foot (nearest baseline) above or barely touching the low box. This will become apparent soon. Players should always be cognizant of where the lines and post markings are, as they move about. This comes with repetition.
