d) Dribble series
1 dribbles from halfcourt at game speed, drops his weight down and shoots a pull-up jump shot (15 feet or behind the arc). 2 rebounds and passes to 1 at halfcourt on the other side, repeat. Begin dribbling with the right hand on the right, left hand on the left, use speed dribble, change of pace, inside-out, hard stutter, and inside-out crossover.
When shooting off the dribble, make the last dribble hard and high to help you move directly into your shot.
