with Bill Cartwright, Phoenix Suns Assistant Coach;
former NBA player with the New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls and Seattle Supersonics; 5x NBA Championships 3x as a player, 2x as an assistant coach; NBA AllStar 1980; NBA AllRookie First Team 1980; 2x All American at the University of San Francisco
Now you can learn essential post fundamentals and moves from 5x NBA Champion, NBA AllStar, first round draft pick and 2x All American post player, Bill Cartwright. Cartwright takes coaches and players on a journey through the fundamentals of low post play. He breaks down the position like a surgeon and builds a web of options and reactions that will take advantage of the post defender, even if hes in good position.
Learn the key concepts that every post player needs to know in order to win the battle inside: How to get open, where to attack once you have the ball, how to make yourself faster, stronger and harder to guard, how to hold off your defender by moving your legs, and how to receive the ball in a position that will maximize your offensive options.
Building on these techniques, Cartwright will help you develop a goto move, a counter move, and a counterthecounter move. You will learn the drop step, hook shot, jump hook, jump shot, front dribble hook, windshield washer, high side reverse jump hook and more. All of these moves are also taught off a high side reverse pivot and a reverse pivot baseline rip, which will create space for you to quickly read the defense.
Coach Cartwright shows you how to outthink your opponent and stay one step ahead of them, always prepared to react to whatever action the defense throws at you. Post players also need to keep their teammates involved by passing out of the post if they get pushed off the post or if they dont have the proper the footwork.
With Bill Cartwrights arsenal of post moves and fundamentals, you will be a hub in your offense, not a hole. Develop an arsenal of moves in the post that will keep your opponent guessing and allow you to dominate in the paint!

As a varsity coach at the high school level I have reviewed a lot of post play videos, clinics, and practices. In my opion this set is a must have for any serious student of post play. I think Mr. Cartwright is an excellent coach of post play and provides a very thorough, easy to understand explanation of post skills and drills. Post play is becoming a lost art in our game. Hopefully this video will help resurrect it.
