Did you know you were going 65?… Okay 55. Hi I’m Coach Collin Catellaw and this is the Post Reverse Pivot Move. The Post Reverse Pivot Move is a phenomenal move that every player should have in their game. It starts with an entry pass from the perimeter where you are catching two feet in the air. You want to catch with two feet in the air because if you catch 1-2 you can only pivot one direction and you want to keep your options open as a post player. So you catch two feet in the air, from here all you are going to do is pick a foot to pivot on, in this case I’m going to use my left, I’m going to go towards the baseline. You are going to do a reverse pivot where you are following your behind around and ripping it through towards the baseline. Now the key to this move is to make it really really quick so when you catch you rip the ball through below your knees and explode to a jump stop going back to the baseline. The quicker you are and the faster you rip it through the better the move is going to be and the more off guard it will catch your defender. Alright let’s see how Tim Duncan gets his defenders with this move. Tim starts the reverse pivot to see where his defenders feet are at. He sees that Gasols front foot is really high and vulnerable to a rip through. So Tim just continues his reverse pivot and rips the ball through to get his hips by Gasols. It is too quick for Gasol to drop his front foot and get back into position. And now you know how to scorch your defender with Tim Duncan’s Reverse Pivot.
