Multi-stop challenge

DJ Sackmann

See YouTube video - Multi-stop challenge.

5 spots (corner, wing, top, wing, corner), to move to the next spot make 4 shots in a row using different types of stops (catch in a split stance),

- speed stop (inside-outside)
- speed-stop exchange (inside-outside, exchange behind the back, foot replacement)
- inverted drag (anchor the inside foot, between the legs, replace)
- punch drag (punch the ball outside the lead foot, replace
- drag pullbacks (cross, under, behind)
 - start with the ball, dribble and drop into a split stance while pulling the ball to the pocket, see YouTube videos - Punch drag breakdown, Inverted drag breakdown
- start with a lateral bound to a drop, see YouTube video - Bounds
- Augie Johnston - through the legs stop on a dime, see YouTube video - Stop separation move.

A speed stop is the fastest way to stop. Hesitate and go is a counter (rise up, show shot, push the ball out). Punch drag and inverted drag are also counters, e.g. on a crossover-step drive
- punch drag if committed to another step with the outside foot
- use an inverted drag if your defender is jumpy and immediately crosses his feet.

A speed-stop exchange gets separation and protects the ball, then options include
- drop move to attack, crossover, or shoot (step up)
- elongated stepback, or Harden touch stepback
- spin seal move - sell a pull-out dribble, reverse dribble to attack (can then use a drag pullback to a drop move).
