When I was a 12-year-old aspiring basketball player, I heard NBA Hall of Famer Adrian Dantley teach about basketball’s “triple threat.” I learned that when you first receive the ball, you are in a great position with three potential options: dribble, shoot, or pass. I wouldn’t soon forget the power of the triple threat, and it changed the way I played basketball.
When I coach, I tell players they need to be a threat on the field. If you get the ball and the defender knows you aren’t going to do anything with it, the defender will smother you. But if the other players know you are a threat, they will be on their heels when you have the ball. It changes everything.
