Perfecting PG Skills for Nationally Ranked 7th Grader

Malik Thomas is one of the fiercest 7th grader basketball players you’ll ever see. Standing at 6’2 with grown man aggressiveness and physicality, he’s been toted as the number four ranked 7th grader in the Nation in recent standings. (See below for more details about his National ranking or check out this article:http://www.p2bball.com/2015/10/p2bballcom-2015-2021-top-100-national.html?m=1) What’s even more impressive is his work ethic and commitment to improvement. As an obviously bigger player, he’s become comfortable playing positions 3-5, but now that he’s getting closer to High School age, he’s dedicating himself to evolving his game to be proficient at the guard positions as well. In this clip, you’ll get a snippet into his latest Genesis Hoops workout focusing on setting up and scoring off the pick and roll. Notice the varied initial attack moves as well as finishes. There no doubt that Malik is setting his course to BE GREAT!

Training for Combat

Training for basketball combat means understanding how to use your entire body (hands, arms, hips, legs, feet and of course that thing between your ears) to create advantages. Sometimes it’s properly using the contact you create and other times it’s using the contact others create against them. See here how @jalapenoxavier_ starts off working on ball protection and reaction with off hand, then flows into using pivot to create space and a driving angle when under pressure (notice how without hooking, he’s able to wall off defender with off hand). Once he’s by his opponent, now it’s time to lock him out of the play and control him with a few reverse dribbles (must keep ball low and anticipate the reach in). This is a very effective way for ball handlers to increase the amount of open space they have in the lane to make reads and take advantage of numbers after they’ve effectively taken one defensive player out of the play. At the end of it all you gotta be able to finish through a foul. That’s how you prepare of battle. Are you combat ready?
