Starting under the basketball basket and facing the half-court line is a great place to begin your basketball drills. The Mikan Variations drill that suggests making layups with the right hand off the backboard jumping off your right leg, then on the left side of the basket repeating this using your left leg -- only using your outside foot with outside hand while dribbling -- will help you develop layup skills. An easy way to incorporate this into practice is by ensuring you make 10 layups before moving on; with each jump, focus on getting as much height as you can and adding additional spin to the basketball. By practicing these drills regularly,you will quickly become better at making shots near a basketball hoop.
