Video Transcript: TRAVIS CORPENING: "Something else that you guys can use, kind of keep your defense, defense on their toes is called a jump stop. Want to be careful that you don't travel, I've been guilty of it myself a few times. But, when you do the jump stop, what you do is, you want to come, most times, it's probably more effective getting into the paint. So, I'm going to going to step back and show you using the paint here exactly how to use it. So, if I'm over here and I'm doing the jump stop. I step like this, I'm setting my man up, and on the dribble you've got to take that dribble and as soon as you dribble you got to jump. So, it's dribble and land and then you take your shot. So, as soon as you, as soon as you get off your feet, as soon as you get off your feet you've got to be prepared to land and take the shot. The purpose of the jump shot, jump stop is to get spacing so that you jump from outside of the lane, inside of the lane and get closer to the basket. That's the whole purpose of the jump stop. So, you can move it over here and take it, anywhere you want to do it. So, the jump stop, there you have it. It's one of the most effective moves getting into the paint, catching the defense, getting the defense, catching them off guard so there you have it, jump stop."
