Great playmakers know how to manipulate the defense to create scoring and passing angles like Luka Doncic. In this week’s video, PGC Director Rudy Bentley breaks down three moves you can start using today to become an elite playmaker in the paint:
1. Jump Stop
Average playmakers make rushed decisions. Give yourself time to read and manipulate the defense by using your jump stop. The jump stop triples the amount of time that you have to make a decision, giving you 3 seconds in the paint before the referee calls the 3-second rule.
2. Ball Fake
When you ball fake, you get the defense to move their hands down to open up a scoring angle.
At PGC, we teach a move called The Chiropractor. To do this move in the paint, ball fake behind the ribs of your defender and the defender will turn. When he turns, you will see the scoring angle. Take the shot off the backboard.
3. Shot Fake
When you shot fake, you get the defense to move their hands up to open a passing angle. For a realistic shot fake, make sure your eyes look at the rim and your ball moves to your chin.

The problem is players put in an immense amount of time, energy, and effort, but struggle to see their improvement.
Athletes, this is for you. We all want to play more minutes, have more fun, and win more games. But there’s a big problem that we all succumb to that’s holding us back from reaching our full potential.
