Alright so now it is time to breakdown Carmelo Anthony’s vicious jab step. Alright so the first key to the jab step is the jab itself. Check out how Carmelo picks up his foot and then stabs it violently into the ground. This makes the defender shift their weight and get ready to guard the drive. Key #2 is you want to throw a hard ball fake simultaneously with the jab step. With the ball and your foot coming forward at the same time the defense has not choice but to react. And the last key, you want to make sure that you get your eyes up to your target as soon as possible. Most guys miss this shot because they don’t find their target until the ball is just about to release out of their hands. Alright so remember the 3 main keys to the Jab step. #1 You want to throw that foot forward as hard as you possibly can to really sell it making the defender think you are driving the basketball. Key #2 you want to give a really hard ball fake to the inside of that front knee. That way you can really sell that drive even more with that original jab step. And key #3 you want to get your eyes up early as fast as you possibly can to locate that target. Remember the longer you aim at the target them ore accurate your shot is going to be.
