Description

Do you want to learn some post moves to improve your offensive game?

Do you want to be a better fundamentally sound, post player?

Do you want to learn advanced basketball moves that can elevate your skills?

If so, then this is the course that you should enroll in.

Welcome to the Advanced Basketball: Offensive Post Moves Course!

This course is for anyone that wants to learn offensive post moves.  In this course, I will show you over thirty post moves that you can learn and practice on your own.  You might not find some of these post moves anywhere else but here in this course since these post moves are very advanced and challenging to master.

Expectations from this course!

Despite the challenges that are possibly presented in this course, anyone is still capable of learning these moves.  The post moves do range from basic to advanced levels.  In addition, the advanced moves generally do require excellent footwork, ball control, and balance.  Many of these moves are gathered from extensive studying of the basketball games and drills.  I have learned many of these post moves personally from other great basketball coaches and from watching great NBA legends like Hakeem Olajuwon, Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan, and etc.

Why take this course?!

Because I have a considerable amount of knowledge about post moves, I have the desire to want to share them and teach these moves to others that want to learn.  These lectures will provide step-by-step instructions on how to master the techniques for these moves. Through constant repetition and practice, you can master these post moves and use these moves in games where you can be an dominant offensive player.  And who knows, you might draw comparisons to the likes of Hakeem the Dream or Tim Duncan "the Big Fundamental" and just shine as an effective post player.

Who is the target audience?
  • anyone that wants to learn fundamental post moves
  • advanced basketball players that are seeking to learn additional moves

13 Lectures 09:29

You start off by backing down your opponent with a couple dribbles.  Then, you head towards the middle of the paint where you jump stop and shoot a basic jump hook.

Preview 00:46

You start off by backing down your opponent with a couple dribbles.  Then you head, towards the baseline where you jump stop and shoot a basic jumper.

Preview 00:45

Instead of using the jump stop for a jump hook, you can shoot a jump hook while you are on the move with the two step method.  In this case, you will making the move towards the middle of the paint.

Running Hook (Middle)
00:19

Instead of using the jump stop for a jump hook, you can shoot a jump hook while you are on the move with the two step method.  In this case, you will be making the move towards the baseline.

Running Hook (Baseline)
00:17

This move requires you to stretch one of your legs around your defender as the other leg follows along.  As you take the two big steps around your defender, you allow yourself to get better inside position for a closer shot.  The drop step allows you to seal your opponents with your arms and legs to obtain a good position in the post.

Basic Drop Step
00:42

This move is named after Hakeem Olajuwon, one of the greatest centers in the NBA, since he used it so many times throughout his career.  It is a subtle shoulder fake where you act like you are going one direction, but you end up going the other way.  In this case, you would give a fake like you are going baseline, but you go towards the middle of the paint for a shot.

Dream Shake (Middle)
00:43

This move is named after Hakeem Olajuwon, one of the greatest centers in the NBA, since he used it so many times throughout his career.  It is a subtle shoulder fake where you act like you are going one direction, but you end up going the other way.  In this case, you would give a fake like you are going towards the paint, but you end up going towards the baseline for a shot.

Dream Shake (Baseline)
01:09

Instead of using the dream once, you use multiple times in order to throw the defender off.  When you use the dream shake multiple times, your opponent will have a hard time reading your next move.

Multiple Dream Shakes
00:52

The one hand leaner is a hook shot where you are tilting your body as you take the shot.  It is a difficult and off-balanced hook shot, but it allows you to get the shot off quicker and shoot the ball from an angle that is difficult for the defender to guard.

One Hand Leaner Shot
00:44

Once you receive a pass, you quickly turn around square yourself to the basket and take the shot.  This will throw the defender off since a quick shot off the pass will probably not be anticipated.

Quick Turnaround Jumper (Pass)
00:41

Instead of shooting a turnaround jumper right off the pass, you can take a couple dribbles to back down your opponents and take your time.  When the timing is right, you can take your turnaround jumper.

Quick Turnaround Jumper (Dribble)
00:33

When you still have your dribble, you can pump fake the turnaround jumper to create an opening for another shot. In this lecture, you will take a dribble and turnaround again for that same jumper that you pump faked.

Preview 01:22

As you are driving towards the middle, you take two steps and jump off one leg for a jumper.  As you pull for the jumper, you fade away from the opponent while you are in the air.  Michael Jordan is well known for using this move many times throughout his career, and it has been a very effective move for him to use.  It is a pretty difficult shot to master, but it can also be very difficult move to guard once you get this move down.

Facing the Basket Post Moves (Reverse Pivot)
4 Lectures 03:25

Many moves that start off with a reverse pivot, facing the basket technique are shown in other sections of this course.  You will be able to see that there are so many post moves that start off with a reverse pivot movement. However, I decided to place some of these moves in other sections because I felt like it was better suited in those specific categories.

Preview 01:20

As you face the basket, you should still have your dribble available to use.  For this move, you would jab step one direction to act like you are going to drive.  Pull up on a jumper if the defender bites on the fake.

Jab Step Jumper
00:28

When you are sizing up your opponent, you should be ready to make some physical contact with your opponent. You want to dip your shoulder into the chest of your opponent and immediately take a dribble while you are stepping back.  As you step back to your hind leg, you should rise up for your jumper.

Preview 01:03

In this lecture, you would learn how to take a jumper as you are fading away from the basket.  You would start off with either a pump fake or a jab step to make the defender think twice.  Then, you would take one dribble towards the baseline and take a quick leaning jumper over your opponent.

Leaner Jumper

Spin Post Moves
6 Lectures 04:18

You would start off driving towards the middle.  If the defender beats you to the middle, then you quickly counter with the spin towards the baseline for a finish.  

Preview 00:42

You would start off driving towards the baseline.  If the defender beats you to the baseline, then you quickly counter with spin towards the middle for a finish.

Preview 00:50

In this move, you start off having your back to your opponent with your dribble still intact.  The key to this move is feeling out your opponent by noticing how much pressure the defender is putting on you.  If the opponent puts a considerable amount of pressure on your back, then you can quickly spin around for a potential shot.  The move will usually catch the opponent off guard as you blow past him with a blistering move.

Quick Spin Move (Tornado Move)
00:49

This move starts off with fake spin acting like you are going to the baseline.  However, you end up going to the middle for a jump hook.  Again, the fake spin will throw off the defender with the misdirection spin.

Fake Spin Into Jump Hook
00:39

You set up this move with a fake spin and end up in the middle.  Instead of going up for a shot, you would pump fake, step through, and finish for an easy layup.

Fake Spin Into Layup
00:40

You can either back down your opponent or start off facing the basket.  You attack the middle with a jump stop and add a pump fake to it.  After the pump fake, you immediately spin for a hook shot.

Preview 00:37

In this move, you face the basket and your opponent.  Then, you drive towards the baseline where you come to a stop and pump fake.  As you pump fake, you are also establishing a balanced position with a jump stop.  After the pump fake, you quickly do a spin move where you should get an easy layup.

One Hand Pump Fake (Part 1)
01:35

In this move, you face the basket and your opponent.  The set up for this move is the same as the previous lecture.  If the opponent does not fall for the pump fake, then you counter with a quick layup.  The pump fake will still be effective since it will make the defender hesitate for a second.  The hesitation will allow you to quickly get off a shot before your opponent blocks your shot.

One Hand Pump Fake (Part 2)
00:36

This move is named after the Hakeem Olajuwon since he is best known for using this move against another great center in David Robinson.  The set up for this move is same as part one of the one hand pump fake.  However, you add a pump fake after the spin move.  Finally, you step through for an easy layup.

Pump Fake Series (Part 2)

In this lecture, this move is an add on to the previous lecture.  After the pump fake, you would actually take a dribble instead of taking a shot.  After taking a dribble, you can pump fake again and then rise up for a shot.

My name is Daniel Yoo and I am a basketball player, coach, and fantasy basketball aficionado.

I have been playing basketball since I was very young. I started playing organized basketball in high school for all four years, two of the years were at a varsity level. After high school, I started volunteering as both boys and girls basketball coach for middle school students at a local church. As the coach, I participated and won in many tournaments against other competitors. In addition, I also coached high school boys basketball for one year as an assistant freshmen/sophomore coach at St. John Bosco. St. John Bosco is one of the top-notch high school basketball programs in Southern California, and I learned a considerable amount from my experience as a coach there. I am currently an assistant coach for the women's basketball team at Saddleback College located in Mission Viejo, California. I am also a private basketball trainer where I train individuals with their basketball skills. Even to this day, I continue learn more about the game of basketball and have a willingness to teach others of what I have learned.

I also have a considerable amount of experience playing fantasy basketball. Since 2010, I have played numerous fantasy basketball leagues. I have placed and won many leagues in custom leagues and Yahoo Pro leagues. As a result, I have won many money prizes.
