Rip Hamilton using screens
Rip Hamilton - Moving without the ball
TNT NBA Fundamentals
Keys to moving without the ball:
- know where your teammates are at all times
- never stand in one spot for more than two seconds
- change speeds.
Hamilton will flare off one screen (back pedal), going slow to bait his man, sprint baseline to use another screen, then slow it up to gather himself for the pass and shot (shown).
If he starts at the top he will jog down, take his man opposite, then cut off a pin-down screen.
For a shooting drill, use two chairs or cones as screens, two other players (or coaches) pass and rebound..
a) start under the basket, curl around a screen for a pass and shot
b) jog up, flare off the other screen (back pedal)
c) flare, don't get the ball, backcut for a pass
d) curl, don't get it, curl the other screen for a shot.
