LeBron James Scoring Drills: Down Screen and Pop

Try this pick-and-pop drill inspired by NBA superstar LeBron James.

James sets a down screen above the block and then pops out to the corner.

He receives a pass at the 3-point line, and uses one of three finishing moves.

  1. During practice, have your players set up in the paint.
  2. Player one sets a down screen for his teammate and then pops out to the corner.
  3. A coach or teammate passes the ball to the player in the corner
  4. The player at the baseline practices each move: Catch and shoot, shot fake and finish at the rim, jab step to one dribble and then a jump shot
