Basketball Training Equipment and Exercises
Basketball is a unique sport in that it requires the defender to remain squared up to the player with the ball, and continue to move laterally to cut off lanes and deny the offense the basket. In other sports the defender will turn and run with the offense and move in a very natural way, however in Basketball the more space a defender can take up between the ball and the basket the more difficult it will be for the offense to drive and score. This means the side shuffle is used more in basketball than any other sport. Because of this specialized movement it becomes necessary for unique training and equipment to be utilized to become the best athlete possible.
