- A Skill for Offensive Effeciency -

About This Video:
Barkleys are one of the most underrated offensive skills for both playmaking and scoring. Named for Charles Barkley, a Barkley would take place when a player is cut off on a drive, and instead of immediately passing or picking up their dribble, they turn into a live post-up by using a crab dribble. By keeping their dribble alive, it gives players more options and opportunities to score or play make with their passing. This is a great skill that can be added anytime during your season or in the off-season without disrupting everything else your team has happening on the offensive end.
