Hi I'm Coach Collin Castellw with SHot Mechanics.com and this is the LeBron James Power Dip. Now the power dip is an awesome move that LeBron james uses all the time and has kinda perfected it in the last couple years. It's the perfect move because not only does it give him extra separation to get off a shot but also most of the time draws a foul on his defender. So because not only you get separation but you also draw fouls it is perfect for defenders even if they are bigger or smaller then you. Before we break it down for you show us a little love with a like, comment, or subscription. everything helps our channel grow and we could not be more thankful. Alright so let's break down the move and be on the look out for the 3 main keys that will help you execute this move. The LeBron james Power Dip is brought to you by Krossover. Click the link in the description and check out more. So this move begins as LeBron james beats his man to the basket. It works best of your defender is running hip to hip next to you. That way they are out of position. So the first key is that you want to launch off your inside foot. this makes it look less like LeBron James is initiating the contact and makes it look like it is more of a foul on the defender. The next thing you want to do is initiate the contact early. It works best if you can draw contact before your defender has a chance to jump. this will catch them out of position and make it easier for the referee to call a foul against them. So the last thing you want to do is focus through the contact and find your target you are aiming at. You can't go wrong with locking your eyes on the top corner of the square and then putting the ball softly off of it. Alright so remember there are 3 main keys to keep in mind doing this move. #1 you want to jump off of your inside foot that way it creates more natural power and it does not look like your jumping into the defender as much drawing that offensive foul. Key #2 is that you want to create that contact early. it is really important that you create that contact before you defensive player can get set. This is really important because it puts your defender out of position and so when the refs need to make a call they really can only call it on the defender. And finally key #3 you need to focus with your eyes through contact, find your target as soon as you possibly can and put the ball on point. You will see sometimes that guys forget to aim the ball and just kinda throw it off the backboard. So really focus through that contact, find your target, and put it in.
