The pick and roll is one of the most common plays used in basketball today regardless of what level you play at.  If performed correctly, it can be ultra effective anywhere from professional basketball all the way to the playground.  While the concept is simple, there are some important details to keep in mind.  The Harlem Globetrotters How-To series is designed to teach you those details.

Harlem Globetrotter Training Drills Checklist

1. Cone drill:  If you’re practicing by yourself, grab a cone, shoe, trashcan or anything else you can use for a screener.  Dribble around the object using it a screen to practice shooting and driving off a screen.

2. Buddy drill:  Grab a friend.  Switch off being the ball handler and screener.  Practice coming off the screen and: shooting, driving for the layup and passing to the roller for the shot.
