Movement analysis - Stephen Curry

Practice pivots and shooting on the tips of your toes will increase mobility and quickness on curls coming off screens for your jump shot or on drives to the basket. See how Steph Curry extends on his jump shot as a result of being on the tip of his toes.

Focus on his footwork in this video*. You’ll notice his graceful transition from tippy-toe pivoting/dribbling to his renowned beautiful shots.
After analyzing his footwork and moves associated with it, try to make the same move first with your whole sole on the ground then on tiptoes. You can feel the difference right away!
