A Momentum Dribble is made on the go. You catch and just continue running. What if there is a defender in front of you? If your habit is to take this Mo’ Dribble the moment you catch the ball and you don’t see the defender then there is a high probability you will get called for a charge or a traveling violation.
Instead, make it your habit to use a Mo’ Stop or a Mo’ Change.
A Mo’ Stop is a quick pause for control and vision. This quick stop on the catch allows you to get vision to see the defender and see open teammates.
A Mo’ Change allows you to gather your body and load your legs to quickly change directions and explode past the defender to avoid the charge.

Join us this summer and discover how to become a playmaker, lead your team, and run the show.
Mediocre passers attempt to pass around and over defenders. Great passers pass through defenders. To pass through defenders, you must subconsciously know which windows are open. To do this, you must learn to be patient. Keep your elbow bent and the ball next your body. Open passing windows with your eyes and your height.
When asked about what he learned in the NBA, Devin Booker said the number one thing he learned was he does not have to play fast. The NBA game is all about holding something back and knowing when to use those one or two steps. That’s control.
Here are five pre-game habits to help best prepare you for the game.
