Ettore Messina’s Post Clinic
When in Toronto in October for the CSKA Moscow vs. Toronto Raptors game, I attended a clinic hosted by Basketball Ontario with CSKA Head Coach Ettore Messina. I wrote about the clinic in my Hard2Guard Player Development Newsletters.
In the video, he shows what he calls the “reverse jump stop,” which I call a “stride stop” in my books and articles.
He also talks about ways to build the skills and confidence of a developing post player. It’s about building in small steps, not trying to master everything at one time. As he says,he doesn’t want him to go from “0 to 100,” but to get him ready to contribute in a small way on the court as soon as possible.
