We call this the triple threat position because for one position you can pass the ball, she can shoot the ball or drive to the basket on the defender. Now, the common mistake that most players make is they will catch the ball on the perimeter and they will hold the ball up here. How many options do I have up here? Say it louder. One. Always when you talk and answer coaches, always talk loudly because it displays that you have confidence in your knowledge in what you are doing.
How many options do I have up here? We got one option which is to pass, that means I am one-third of the basketball player that I should be. So whenever you catch the ball by the time you leap, you will always face up in a triple threat position and you will be ready to attack.
Now, we also call this position, a foul shooting position. So when you go to the free throw line and you have done your warm ups, you have taken your dribbles, you wiped your socks or your shoes whatever your routine is, you will go to this position, the triple threat position, is also a foul shooting position
The reason we call it the foul shooting position as well is because every time now that you are on the gym by yourself or on a team setting and you go to practice a foul shot, what other types of shot are you also practicing. Sure a regular shot, you are practicing a regular shot. So, now when you practice your regular shots you are using the same alignment, the same mechanics and the same shot is doing a bad as a foul shot.
Now, when we also practice a foul shot, you also need to be practicing the same mechanics and the same form that you would shoot in a normal game shot. That means your shooting will now become universal or as one. You are beginning twice as much practice done and you do not have to practice two different things at the same time. When we go to triple threat, we also call this the third name, we call this a trophy position. For two reasons, in the old days, this was considered the trophy position.
Coaches, do you remember what the old trophies look like, you know, when we graduated. They were all here, now when you get a trophy they have these forms and they have the dribbler. But basketball was a fairly new sport. When it was fairly new sport 20 years ago; they went to the coaches who were the best in the nation at that time and they said, “We need a position that demonstrates what basketball is all about”. They came up with the triple threat position.
