  • Hey Coach Collin Castellaw with Shot Mechanics Basketball and today I'm going to teach you

  • my top 4 NBA transition moves. Alright so with all transition moves what we are trying

  • to do is freeze the defender or get to the basket right, so the moves we are going to

  • teach you today aren't super fancy instead they are going to be moves that will be really

  • really effective. The first one I really love is the hesitation so in transition as you

  • have your speed coming down hill. The whole key is that you want to start by keeping your

  • defender back peddling right and so the key is I want to keep my speed up moving downhill

  • towards the defender. You can think about it like a running back in football the faster

  • you move downhill the harder it will be to tackle right so keep your speed moving downhill

  • and with the hesitation the idea just we are freezing our speed for a second you can chop

  • your feet the key here is raising your shoulder. If I'm attacking downhill I want to sell the

  • hesitation by raising m shoulders up if I raise my shoulders up its probably going to

  • make him think that I'm going to shoot especially if I'm a good shooter so what that allows

  • me to do is raise boom and then explode by your defender the whole key to the hesitation

  • here it to keep your back leg loaded if I come to my hesitation and I lock my legs out

  • when I raise my shoulders this doesn't make me very explosive I have to get low. So instead

  • when I hesitate and raise I'm going to keep my back leg loaded and ready to spring back

  • here that way as soon as I'm ready boom I'm already loaded and ready to explode my hips

  • by his, again once you do that just get in the paint and finish or pull up for a jumper

  • or whatever it is that the defense gives you. The next transition move that I love is the

  • in and out dribble there is two variations of this move and it's really up to you which

  • one you would like to use. Again it all starts the same moving downhill towards the defense.

  • The idea is that we are trying to shift him out of the way. So we can keep attacking with

  • the same hand. With the in and out I like to pretend like there is a center line in

  • my body right here and I'm breaking that center line of my body with the ball. So the first

  • variation of the in and out that I like is when you are coming your going to plant. and

  • then roll the ball over the top right, its a natural reaction for the defender to move

  • so then all I have to do is explode my hips past his towards the open gap right, super

  • easy again hand on top of the ball. If I pick it underneath they will call me for a carry.

  • So I want to keep a bounce hand on top then I can explode by so thats variation number

  • 1 probably my favorite. Variation number 2 is adding a bounce into it so instead of rolling

  • over the top you can pop pop adding two bounces to it right, this is a bit better if you are

  • moving a little bit slower and don't have enough time to control, but it's essentially

  • the exact same thing I'm pop he shifts pop back around right one of my favorite things

  • about the bounce though is that I can do this come back hit pull backs I have a bunch of

  • different options off of this move. Again key here just make sure that whatever way

  • you are going your breaking the center line of your body getting them to shift and open

  • up that lane. Alright so the push cross is a great one that lots of fast guards use guys

  • like John Wall, Russell Westbrook and it's the idea that you are crossing the ball over

  • but keeping your speed up the entire time. So instead of like a really low crossover

  • like the Allen Iverson crossover where you get really low with your ball down by the

  • ankles the push crossover instead we are pointing our shoulder one direction planting and on

  • a high dribble pushing the ball the opposite direction. Now this one can be a little bit

  • dangerous simply because if you have a defender really close because if he has his hand out

  • playing D and I push across its really easy for him to get to it. The key to the push

  • crossover is to execute the move a little earlier. I'm going to pull it right here and

  • you have to be able to read it a little bit early now if I go here boom I can push out

  • and he can't get to it. Again the key here is keeping your hand on top of the ball. Instead

  • hand on top of the ball push forward and out then attack the hoop this way we keep our

  • speed up going down hill the entire time. Alright so next we have the stab crossover

  • super simple so it all starts when you come up and your going to give a little bait crossover

  • in front just right switching hands so this isn't to beat him necessarily this is just

  • the set up so your going to crossover then you are going to stab with your opposite foot

  • right generally if I stab they are going to move in that direction to slide so you notice

  • as the d is playing me as I cross then stab, BOOM, he goes that way and opens a little

  • lane giving me a straight line towards the hoops right. Again what I love about this

  • one is it keeps my speed up and I continue moving forward. All I have to do is cross

  • stab moving laterally. Generally all it takes is a little shift boom and then I'm going

  • by with this one you can get a little bit shifty by raising your shoulders bring your

  • eyes up whatever it is so I can come in and, boom, add a hesitation. So again just a little

  • drop crossover your not kind of pushing him or your not really selling it all that hard

  • your just boom stabbing in the opposite direction just like that. So if this video helped you
