This week we're taking a look at a drill that is the key to finishing shots around the basket, whether they be layups, put-backs, or finishes from post moves. This drill is called the "Mikan Drill" and has been used by everyone from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to Shaq because it will get you comfortable using either hand to put the ball in the rim. Even though this drill is classically thought of as a "Big Man" drill, we believe that it is for all players, especially if you plan on taking the ball to the hoop.
The keys to this drill are: -Footwork -Keeping the ball high -Putting the ball in the Corner of the Box -Have your hand behind the shot -- Mini hook
If you put the time in with this drill, you'll be amazed at how your finish in and around the basket will improve and with either hand!!
Thanks Mr. Mikan!!!
As always, looking forward to your comments and success stories! Thanks!
