Drill of the Week: Bre Salley Go-To Move
by Emily Stiemsma, on Oct 18, 2018 2:49:00 PM
Most players have a go-to move, and if they don't it's a good thing to start working on. Whether it's basic like Maya Moore's quick pull up jumper or unique like Dirk Nowitzis's one-legged fade away - every player should develop one as they continue to work on their game.
The easiest way to do that is to recognize what you are already good at. If you've got a low quick cross over, incorporate it into a double move to break some ankles! If you're great at getting your shot off quickly, think about mastering a step back.
We brought Bre Salley, former Division 1 and professional player in to showcase her go-to move: an in and out crossover pull up jumper. She shares why this move has worked for her over the years and showcases how she uses the Dish to get up reps.
As with anything, in order to call it your "go to" move it's going to take practice. Lot's of it. Of course remembering that it's important to have other moves in your repertoire so the defense doesn't find you predictable. After you master your go-to move, start working on your counter move for when the defense thinks they know what you are going to do.
