We were connected with Byron as his nephew, Max, received a Dr. Dish Home machine for his backyard. Recently, we were very fortunate to visit Byron and Max to create a number of drills, workouts, and challenges on the Dr. Dish Home - including the 50 make challenge below!
50 Make Challenge
In this 1st drill video from Byron Scott, he demonstrates a great shooting challenge he often used with his players while he coached in the NBA.
Starting at the corner, the player must make 10 shots from the 5 standard spots around the arc (corner, wing, top of the key, wing, corner) for a total of 50 makes. The drill is simple in nature, but is challenging as the goal forces and simulates a pressure situation and often causes fatigue towards the end.
As Byron mentioned, he had players from the Cleveland Cavaliers complete this challenge in less than two minutes. Obviously that's a world-class achievement, but challenge yourself to see how quickly and how little attempts you can complete this challenge.
Depending on the skill level of the player, we recommend a fast tempo as quick as "1" on the Dr. Dish to get shots up as quickly as possible.
If you have access to a Dr. Dish, you can find this challenge within the Dr. Dish app and/or the Dr. Dish CT touchscreen.
