JUMPBALL ACTION

Just few times I have heard coaches talking about that issue, even when in Europe according some older rules jumpball was taking place more often. But if you think better, a quick basket from jumpball can give to your team the follow advantages:
-the feeling to your players, to the team, that team work is excellent from the very first second, something that increase their confidence and their energy.
-the chance to your scorer to “warm up” early in the game, something that also increase his confidence.
-the chance to your team to be up from the very first seconds and set a press defense after the quick basket even with your centers.
-you put your opponent in a situation to afraid you from the beginning of the game, especially if you have more than one or two jumpball actions.

Generally speaking, of course we don't talk about something that can play a huge role in the game, but for something that you can build a very small base for the future of the game.

At the following video, you can watch two of my jumpball actions, both of them very successful.
