The best playmakers in the game have mastered the efficiency AND effectiveness of their breakout dribble—they score more points, and create an advantage for their team.
Practice this breakout dribble to become a better playmaker on a fast break.
For a breakout dribble to be most efficient:
- Push and chase—don’t dribble the ball at your feet.
- Use roll crossovers—don’t keep the ball in your same hand.
- Settle stop with back breaks—regardless of how fast you’re going.

This is a correspondence between PGC owner Dena Evans and a long-time PGC grad. I was so moved by Dena’s response to this player, which the player’s father shared with me, I decided to ask Dena, and this athlete, for permission to share this correspondence publicly.
