Shot and today let’s learn Steve Nash’s signature runner. So Steve Nash is
by no means the most athletic guard to ever enter the NBA I’m not even sure he can dunk
but what he does have is a series of tricks and crafty moves that are awesome especially
when he gets around the basket to finish. He is especially good at finishing off of
1 foot from around 15 feet before he gets to the big men. The runner allows Steve Nash
to keep him moving away from the defender he just beat but also get up a shot before
the bigs can block him. So here is the move. So this move is great for when you beat your
first defender but the second defender does not fully commit to guarding you. This move
works perfectly for undersized guards who are looking to get the ball over a taller
help side defender. So to begin this move you need to somehow beat your defender. In
this case Steve Nash uses an awesome pump fake to get his defender in the air. Next
you want to read the help side defender. In this case the defender is kinda stuck in no-mans
land. Not fully committed to stopping Steve Nash but you can tell he is thinking about
it. The reason Steve Nash gets this shot so much is because defenders are so worried about
his passing ability. So when the defender doesn’t fully commit. Steve Nash plants off
his left foot to begin his runner. Like what you see so far? Help us grow with a like,
comment and a subscription. S he’s shooting notice how his elbow is perfectly under the
ball. Just like an normal jump shot this gives him optimal control and makes it so he can’t
miss left or right. A major reason most players miss the runner is because their elbow points
out causing them to miss eith left or right. And the last key to the runner is the follow
through. Steve Nash always follows though just like a normal jump shot. He finishes
with his fingers to the floor and his shooting hip, shoulder, and elbow all perfectly align
with the basket. Just like a normal jump shot pretend you are putting your middle finger
inside of the hoop. So remember the keys to the runner. Beat your man and continue your
momentum forward, keep your elbow underneath the ball on the shot and hold that follow
though just like a normal jump shot. Well you guys know what time it is and because

  • Reply MrDikembeMutombo November 6, 2015 at 6:27 am

    I think I'm in a rare minority, but at times I feel like I am more accurate shooting 3s one-footed, on the run, like Nash. Seems I get better backspin (guide hand problems). Is it possible my there are just less variables in my release when I shoot runners? Or maybe my alignment/balance is just more consistent.
