Hi I’m Coach Collin Castellaw with Shot Mechanics.com and today you are going to learn the Ricky Rubio Roundabout. That’s a lot of R’s. One of the reasons that makes Ricky Rubio such a good passer and so good at this move is his patience. He is phenomenal at waiting for the gap to open at just the right time before he gives his teammate the ball. So let’s take a look at it. Alright so the play starts with Ricky Rubio drives baseline. As he starts to go on the baseline he notices that the other posts defender has now switched to him. So in a split second he knows that his man must be guarding the opposite post. So Ricky Rubio continues looping around to give himself a better passing angle. he puts the ball high because he knows the defender Jason Kidd won;t be able to get to it. This puts his teammate in an awesome position and the smaller defender doesn’t stand a chance. Just remember there is not rule that says you HAVE to leave your feet going baseline. Always keep your eyes up to see all options. Sometime holding the ball a little longer is the best thing you can do. Remember be patient and you too can drop dimes just like Ricky Rubio.
