  • I get buckets..... Hi I'm coach Collin Castellaw and this is how to use the rim to protect

  • your shot. As a scorer one of the best things you can do is use the rim to protect your

  • shot from eager shot blockers. Now a lot of the time you are going up for a normal finish

  • you're going to have some sort of shot blocker in the area that is going to be maybe really

  • really tall or can jump really really high and is at least going to challenge your shot.

  • What you can do as a scorer is use the rim to protect the ball away from the shot blocker.

  • So let's pretend I've beat my man off the dribble and I've got a defender right here

  • in front of me. You can go up and straight challenge them if you want to but if they

  • are a good shot blocker they are probably going to get to it. Instead what you can do

  • is you can use some sort of move to cross back over to the opposite side of the rim

  • and then use it to protect the ball. Most of the time a shot blockers hand is not going

  • to come across through the net or through the rim to come get a shot. So you see big

  • time scorers always try to get to the opposite side of the rim because it gives them an open

  • look. Alright let's check out how Kyrie Irving does it. Kyrie is awesome at this move because

  • of his great vision and ball skills. HE is not the most athletic guy in the league and

  • that is why this move works perfect. So as he begins his drive he sees LeBron as the

  • help side defender he gets LeBron to bite by rocking the ball to the right side of the

  • basket first. LeBron leaves his feet to block the shot there as Kyrie switches the ball

  • to his left. This keeps the rim between the ball and LeBron James' hand making it impossible

  • to block. If you enjoyed this video hit the like button below or subscribe to our channel
