    In today's video, I give you 3 pro level 1 v 1 secrets for short players. These basketball scoring tips are sure to supercharge your scoring in 1 v 1 or ISO situations! These simple 1 v 1 secrets are super easy to implement for players at every level. By implementing these basketball scoring tips into your basketball workouts you can almost immediately skyrocket your scoring, and add some serious moves to your game!
    The first 1 v 1 tip is that the first shot is the best shot, the reason for this is If you are a smaller guard you have to take advantage every single time you get any sort of separation. So by being ready to fire when you get some daylight, you will surely score more point in 1 v 1 or Iso situations. This way of thinking is great for athletes at every level. It works on really forcing you to engage your mind in playing a more reactionary style of basketball as opposed to thinking about what move or shot you want to get! This is something that all the top scorers in the NBA do, think of guys like Stephen Curry and James Harden. They are super elite in terms of taking what the defense gives them and making them pay to Make sure you use step ups to really become the most explosive jumper you can be.
    My 2nd tip is to manipulate on the catch, this is another way to make sure you are able to get your defender out of position without even putting down a dribble. The reason why this is such a helpful scoring tip is that by getting them out of position early it's easier to create massive separation since you still have your dribble live. Guys like Kevin Durant do a really great job of this, being patient on the catch and making the defender give them a top foot. Manipulate on the catch and I promise you will score more points in iso and 1 v 1 situations.
    My last tip is to catch downhill! Though this seems self-explanatory it can really help smaller guards get the advantage on the defense. By catching downhill and getting the defender on their heels it gives you so many more scoring options. It really forces defenders to make a choice, and by doing that they will leave something open whether that's a drive to the basket or and open shot from three! Some of the top small guards in the NBA do a great job of catching downhill on their attack think of a guard like Kemba Walker who is one of the shiftiest guards in the league and always does an awesome job of keeping the defense on their heels!
    Alright splasharmy that's it for my must have 1 v 1 secrets for SHORT Players. These basketball scoring tips are super crucial if you are really looking to take that next step as a smaller guard this year. Make sure you implement these tips and skyrocket your scoring today!

              Its just a method of counting seconds that english speakers use to count seconds more acurately, not too fast, neither too slow. The method is, instead of counting "one, two, three..." you count "one mississipi, two mississipi...".

                                      If people fall back off of u, stepping at them on the catch helps close that gap and force it into a closeout situation.

                                          2. we do a version of that,a hook shot,we jump up as high as we can, and do a jumphook/hookshot/skyhook
                                          3. look up "Kareem's Skyhook" you'll see what i mean

                                          I'm 6ft 3 (6ft 4) in NBA shoes and I skyhook on guys sometimes and even if they get the bottom of the ball it still goes to the hoop.

                                          If I don't skyhook a 5ft 10 guy could block my shot sometimes.

                                                      for short players? I think this will be efficient for tall player also. And btw coach what is your height?
