Here is a sneak preview from the PG Elite 2011 camp. Matt Miller talk to the campers about the importance of being able to handle the ball with contact. So often players associate “beating” a defender with meaning the defender is completely out the picture. As players get older, that happens less and less often. And if you do not totally get that defender out the picture, most young players get to contact, then pick the ball up or allow that contact to determine their path to the basket. Any great players goal (if they cannot get the defender totally out the picture) is to get that defender on their hip and get their shoulder in the middle of the defenders chest. At that point you have the advantage and now you have to read and react basketball (If the defender cuts you off, counter or create space to get a shot off).
