I hear coaches talk all the time about how they wish their players had better lateral quickness. The truth is that most players don’t have the lateral quickness to stay in front of the ball. This is a great game for forcing defenders to move their feet, but it also teaches them to use angles to their advantage. A player may be slower, but by not over-closing out and then taking the right angles, defenders can learn to contain the basketball.
