Lecture Description

In this video lesson, Basketball Instructor, Travis Corpening, teaches how to do the turn around jump shot, which is really hard to defend.

Video Transcript: TRAVIS CORPENING: "One other shot that Michael Jordon used to use and Kema Laguan used to use really effectively is called the turnaround jump shot. Actually when these guys use it they are pros so remember turnaround jump shot, when they do it is a turnaround fade away jump shot. So this is something you might want to practice as well but the turnaround jump shot basically for our purposes we are going to start here in the corner. If you are standing right here and you have got the ball, fed the ball, fed the ball and you've got the defensive men behind you, right. What you want to do is you want to fake, remember we talked about having the pivot foot, the pivot foot is important because you can only use it like this and once you establish it you can't move it, so this is your pivot foot. You are using the pivot foot, you back into the man, don't hit him because you don't want to foul, back into the man, spin back out and take the jump shot. There you go, but just like I said before, Colby Bryant, Michael Jordon, Kema Laguan, when they do this move it looks a little more like this, a fade away and then they get the shot. So however you want to do it, whatever is more effective, the fade away is probably more effective because if you have a man in the paint that is actually a little taller than you might want to sell that and fade away because it makes it harder for him to block and actually I used to use this move a lot this used to be one of my favorites because no one could block it. So there you have it, the turnaround jump shot."
