Shooting off the dribble is one skill you should learn in the game of basketball. Why?… well because it is probably one of the most difficult shots to guard, that and the hook shot.
It is so hard to guard because you can pull the trigger at any given moment when shooting off the dribble. You can dribble to any spot on the floor and raise up and shoot! No defender can guard that and pull-up jump-shot is always open, so make sure you learn it.
