The Defensive Key to Lock Down Your Opponent...

It doesn't matter how good your offense is, if you're not
defensively sound, you WILL be the "bench warmer" for
your team.

Believe it or not, coaches do care about defense more than offense.

Coaches know that the key to winning is slowing down and stopping
the other teams' star players.

Now, you don't need to constantly steal the ball from them, or
block all their shots to be an effective defensive player.

Simply being able to stay infront of him/her and force them into
tough, low percentage shots does the trick.

The key here is to make your man work extremely hard to get off a
shot.  Your mind set should be to wear him out and make him tired.

Even if he/she starts out hitting those tough shots, it doesn't matter.
As the game progresses, the amount of work, and energy they had to
use will show its effects.

Now, realize that all this is only possible if you're able to stay
infront of your man.

Let's take a look at some of the defensive tips presented in Part 2
of the Elite Basketball Improvement System: "All-Star Basketball Skills"

TIP: Keep your eyes on the defender's abs.

=> No matter what fake the offensive player performs, they can only
go where their abs take them.

TIP: Play defense with your feet not your hands.
 
=> Don't be lazy, you need to move your feet.  Reaching aimlessly
with your hands will only lead to pointless fouls.

TIP: Go for the steal on the up-bounce.

=> This is when the ball is moving the slowest, and when your
player has the least control.

TIP: Get low.

=> When in your defensive stance make sure to get low and wide,
while staying on the balls of your feet. This will maximize you
ability to stay in front of your defender and not let him blow past
you.   

By practicing the defensive TIPS presented above, you will
instantly see improvements in your defense.

There are so MANY more important defensive tricks and secrets
that you need to know to become a super-tough defender, and you
can find ALL of them in "All Star Basketball Skills"...
