Dr. Dish Basketball is excited to bring you another great basketball drill. One of the most exciting players in the game now is Stephen Curry. He has the ability to light any team up from anywhere on the court and he has to be guarded as soon as he steps on the court.
Curry has a series of favorite moves he uses throughout a game. Some of his moves are used to get to the hoop, but most of his moves are done to simply create enough space so he can get his shot off. The particular move we will go over is a combo move that takes a lot of practice to perfect. Once you get comfortable with it, you will have some great scoring options when using it.
Dr. Dish Basketball has taken basketball training to the next level with the launch of Skill Builder. Now coaches can design workouts that incorporate drills that work on ball-handling, shooting, strength and conditioning. Players can now build workouts based on drills like this one and they also have access to a library of workouts that they can easily push to the shooting machine through Dr. Dish mobile app. Our goal is to make coaches and trainers jobs much easier while accelerating player development at the same time.
In the video below, we will break down each part of Stephen Curry's favorite move. See how you can incorporate this move into your skill set to become the most well-rounded player you can be! Make sure all basketball drills you perform are as game-like as possible.
STEPHEN CURRY COMBO MOVE WITH DR. DISH
Not only is Curry the best shooter in the NBA (and potentially of all-time), he is also one of the best ball-handlers as well. Being a great ball-handler makes his shot that much more deadly because defenders have to respect the dribble drive as well. The first part of Curry's move he usually does a quick double move. Most of the time he does an in and out, behind the back, before getting into his step back. If his in and out behind the back move shakes the defender, Curry will step back and take that shot. After getting that open shot a few times throughout the game, Curry will switch it up a bit and add in the cross back after the step back. Most defenders will be shuffling there feet and trying to extend to contest Curry's shot and this will leave them unbalanced and vulnerable. At this point he will hesitate and cross back into his jump shot or attack the hoop.
It's important to understand the progression of this move because at any point you may have a scoring option. Sometimes if you pass up on the scoring option and continue with the move, you can give the defender an opportunity to recover. With the Dr. Dish All-Star shooting machine, you can program shooting goals based around Curry's favorite moves to challenge yourself. If you want to take your skill development to the next level, you can also utilize Skill Builder and create an entire workout that can be tracked and pushed to the Dish within seconds.
