C.J. McCollum breaks down the importance of the shot fake

C.J. McCollum is an all star shooting guard for the Portland Trailblazers. Over his last four years in the NBA McCollum has averaged over 20 points per game on over 40% shooting from the field.

In the video below McCollum goes over the importance of the shot fake and demonstrates how to properly drill this technique.

“We teach our young players this drill because it allows them to one, shot fake and two, create separation before the actual shot dribble or pass.” Said McCollum.

The shot fake is one of the oldest yet most effective techniques taught in basketball. It is a skill many players use including McCollum whether they are trying to score, draw a foul or create for one of their teammates.
