DON MEYER: GETTING OPEN IN THE POST

Big man faces the lane (defender usually plays inside) and spins inside and seals him strong. (Don Nelson technique)

Take your man away and flash right back to the ball.

You don’t have to move a lot in the post until the ball is across half court.

Let the ball get into scoring position instead of battling a defender with no chance of ball entry.

If your man is guarding you low (baseline side) try to bury him low while keeping your chest centered to the ball and wide for a post entry pass.

If your man is guarding you high (toward top of the key) take a step up the lane and show the low side hand for entry.
