  • - Hey this is coach Ryan Goodson

  • with I Love Basketball TV.

  • Today we're gonna learn the Stephen Curry

  • floating step back.

  • I'm excited to show you the Stephen Curry

  • floating step back today in our breakdown.

  • This is one of the toughest moves to guard in the game.

  • If you ever wondered how Curry at his size

  • gets open, gets his shot off so quickly

  • this is one of the ways.

  • He gets so much more separation than most players

  • and I just want to show you a breakdown

  • of a regular step back

  • and then a Stephen Curry floating step back.

  • So let's check out a regular step back.

  • You would drive hard, defense cuts you off,

  • plant inside foot, launch to two feet.

  • Yeah, I got space.

  • You know, maybe if I'm long and athletic

  • I can get that shot off,

  • but if I'm Curry's size going again LeBron

  • and some of those longer athletic players

  • that's probably not enough space.

  • So regular step back you could say

  • gets you three to four feet of separation.

  • Conversely the Curry step back can get

  • up to 15 to 18 feet of separation.

  • That's two to three times the space

  • that most players get on their step back.

  • Let's go through the Curry floating step back

  • one time, game speed.

  • Then we'll slow it down, break it into parts

  • and I'll teach you how to do the move.

  • But I just want to show you how much more separation

  • you can get by doing the Curry version of a step back.

  • (ball bouncing)

  • As you can see I've now gained at least twice

  • the separation of a regular step back.

  • Now let's break it down and learn how to do the move.

  • Let's first learn the move with our feet.

  • Let's put the ball down.

  • The footwork, pretty simple.

  • You plant your inside foot and you're low.

  • Sidestep, cross step, hop.

  • Okay now let's see it again.

  • Learn the terminology with our footwork.

  • Plant inside foot, sidestep, cross step, hop.

  • When we land we must land on two feet.

  • It can't be one, two, okay.

  • For this move to be legal you have to land on a jump stop

  • otherwise the referee could call a travel.

  • Land also with your feet shoulder width apart,

  • 10 toes to the rim, ready to shoot the basketball.

  • Let's add the ball now to the move.

  • When do we pick it up?

  • Very important that you pick up the ball

  • on the cross step.

  • When the cross step plants

  • that's when we pick up the basketball

  • just like a jump stop.

  • And for those that think this move be a walk

  • I would argue it's the same as pushing the ball

  • out in front of you and jump stopping.

  • It's the same move.

  • I haven't picked up my dribble.

  • As long as I pick up the dribble on the cross step

  • it's a legal move, alright.

  • Let's check out the move a few times, game speed.

  • Hey this is coach Ryan Goodson with I Love Basketball TV.

  • Today we're gonna work on the LeBron James Euro spin.

  • Today we're gonna work on the LeBron James Euro spin.

  • This is a brand new move.

  • I'm excited to show it to you today,

  • to break it down for you.

  • LeBron used this move in Game 3

  • of the Eastern Conference Finals

  • against the Boston Celtics.

  • He was coming off a ball screen,

  • help defender came, Euro spin,

  • he got a easy finishing layup.

  • Let's break it down.

  • On a traditional spin move

  • you would pivot on that inside foot,

  • get up to your shot.

  • In the Euro spin you're gonna plant and push.

  • When LeBron made the move, he crossover dribbled,

  • planted that foot, bounced back into his shot.

  • So it's a cross dribble, cross step.

  • When we execute that cross dribble and cross step

  • it's important, number one, the ball is outside your body.

  • You gotta protect it.

  • Defender, your body, the basketball.

  • Second is, where are your shoulders pointing.

  • You don't want your shoulders pointing towards the basket.

  • You want your shoulders pointing

  • in the direction of your fake.

  • I want to engage the defender here

  • so that I can separate into space here.

  • So it's crucial, cross dribble, cross step,

  • point your shoulders to the sideline,

  • protect the basketball, bounce back

  • and then you need to jump high.

  • So the last part of the move,

  • make sure when you land on that Euro step, you're low.

  • You're ready to jump high.

  • We don't want to land tall because won't have the balance

  • and body control needed to finish the layup.

  • Every good move has a counter.

  • Let's add a counter to our Euro spin.

  • If you cross dribble, cross step to engage the defense,

  • if they don't cut you off simply take a long step

  • with your outside foot and finish.

  • It's a easy read if you get a lot of repetitions on the move

  • you can kinda feel and gauge where the defender's leaning

  • and then determine whether you need to finish

  • opposite side for the layup

  • or bounce back for your Euro spin.

  • Let's check it out.
