5 Tips for Creating Elite Killer Basketball Crossover Moves

#1. That's me after an Elite Eight NCAA tournament run. Success begins with using “Best Practice Methods” for Elite guard training; whether it is training on the court, in the weight room, watching & studying video replay, or copying their basketball training.

#2. Defense, Offensive Skills, Basketball I.Q., strength and conditioning go hand in hand. A great point guard knows how to disrupt the other team’s offensive & defensive transition, knows how to run half-court sets, make the correct reads offensively, and always know when to pressure and when to contain defensively.

#3. Learn how to get the ball quickly and efficiently by positioning, communication, and preparatory movement, i.e. Moving to the hash, free throw line, cutting diagonally  across the defense as shots are taken.

#4. Changing direction and starting a offensive advantage with an explosive jump on the defensive transition by attacking the first man either with the dribble move or passing to someone in a better position to do the same.

#5. Learning to explore the fast break is key. Keeping your dribble alive by exploring and exploiting the defense by putting pressure on them to see if they make mistakes, i.e. reading body angles, help-side defensive positioning,  and overall fatigue levels of the defenders in front of you.  It’s always easier to exploit fatigue, because fatigue makes mental mistakes.

Obviously, using the dribble to exploit defensive transition is an option when there are no other advantages in front of you with the pass.

ELITE Basketball Moves Don't Happen Overnight

  • Reinforcing proper movement patterns that are in line with efficient exercise science techniques, i.e.—teaching a sprinter to stand up straight out up out of the blocks would be incorrect and slow them down considerably. Many coaches dismiss the very thing that makes players faster, quicker, and more explosive on the court, which in turn, decreases a player’s value to the team!
  • Learn, study, deliberately practice, and analyze your footwork at all times. This is key to basketball success—for the best point guards, shooting guards, and big men—learning progressive footwork combinations will ultimately increase your value on the court ten-fold.
  • Basketball I.Q. What is it? How do you get it? The best coaches are able to impart this key attribute to players through proper coaching and mentoring. Obviously, playing a lot of basketball helps (and against better competition), but there are many players and coaches that lack the resources, competition, and training opportunities to increase Basketball I.Q. 
  • Basketball I.Q. is the amount of intelligence you apply on the court to help make your team better. Let’s start increasing your I.Q. by watching our basketball dribbling drills video introduction here: WATCH our free basketball training video!
