Hi I’m coach Collin Castellaw with Shot Mechanics.com and today we are going to learn Kobe Bryant’s signature spin move. Now Kobe Bryant is one of the NBA’s masters at footwork and one reason why he is one of the best scorers on the planet and one of the best scorers to ever play the game. So let’s break down his signature spin move to a finish and we will see how he does it. There are a couple easily learned keys to Kobe’s spin move. It all begins with your first dribble, this should be a pound dribble launching the ball back up to your hand. The harder the pound the quicker it will launch you into you spin. The next key is for Kobe Bryant to keep the ball close to his body on his spin move this not only protects the ball from the D but it makes him spin faster . Think about if you were spinning on a swing if you kick your legs out you spin slower. The last key is to make sure your first step out of the spin moves lands past the defenders hip. Notice that because Kobe Bryant extends his las step so far the defenders feet are crossed and they have no chance to recover. Notice that as soon as he comes out of his spin Kobe locates his target as quickly as possible. Once you beat your defender a few times with this move you might want to counter with the Mini Shimmy. Click the annotation in the upper left hand corner to find out how. So just remember one of the most important parts of a spin move is that you have to pound that basketball into the ground on your last dribble to get your body to whip around. And also don’t forget it works best if you can keep the ball close to your body that way your spins quicker and because it is that time again and you guys are the best fans on the internet we are going to do another giveaway so you can win.
