🏀Defense is all about timing, while offense is all about rhythm. Proper use of the hesitation dribble allows the offensive player to maintain rhythm while disrupting the defenders timing.

 

🏀If you can get down hill before getting into your dribble hesitation it’s even more effective because the defender is already on its heels.

 

🏀After your hesitation work on being able to find your fastest gear to exploit to relaxed defender

 

🏀Rep out hard quick and tight cross overs in to quick pull ups   ( see Tatum’s pull up)

 

🏀Rep out exploding into advanced finishes out of the hesitation (see Mason’s wrong foot scoop)
