[VIDEO] How To Hit the Chris Paul Step-Back

Have you ever watched a Los Angeles Clippers game wanting to emulate what superstar Chris Paul does night in and night out? Well now is your chance as Coach Collin Castellaw of the Shot Mechanics teaches Youtube viewers around the world how to do one of Paul’s go-to moves in the step-back.

That move is what helps Paul be one of the better offensive players in the league. Standing at 6 foot tall, Paul doesn’t have the opportunity to just shoot over defenders as a Kevin Durant or Lebron James does, so he creates open space with his handle. Last season Chris shot 44 percent on jump shots (BBall Ref) and 49.2 percent from mid-range (NBA Stats).

Here’s another video by Coach Castellaw showing how to do Chris Paul’s signature “English Dribble” which is primarily used on fast-break opportunities.
