and today we are going to learn Dirk Nowitzki’s deadly fadeaway. Dirk Nowitzki kind of revolutionized
the way the big man is looked at in the NBA. A seven footer that can shoot from the outside
and shoot over just about anybody. But besides his size he uses a couple tricks to help him
get this fadeaway off uncontested every time. So let’s take a look at it. Although it helps
to be tall smaller players can effectively use this move as well. It is all about creating
separation from your defender. Most of the time Dirk begins his fadeaway with a backdown.
He keeps his left shoulder to the defender and his right hand dribbling the basketball.
Dirk then times it to when he initiates contact he begins his spin move and drops his right
foot deep into his defenders territory. This will put your defender out of position and
many times it will be hard for them to jump to contest your shot. Dirk then fades off
of his left foot making it that much harder to block then extends his knees so that the
defender can’t get close ehough to block his shot. Check out how even though he is fading
away he keeps a perfect 90 degrees in his shooting elbow. Dirk also moves his set point
of his shot above his head now he just has to find his target and knock it down. So remember
all you have to do is move your shot set point a little bit higher above your head. Your
gonna want to fadeaway from the defender and you are going to want to lock your eyes on
the rim as quick as you possibly can. And also try to put a little extra power into
the shot because you are fading away you are going to need it. Most people miss their fadeaway
short. If you love this video and want to show some support just give a like, comment, or subscribe.
