Post Play.   Baseline Drop Step.
Receive the post pass with a jump stop (so either foot can become the pivot foot). After receiving the ball, feel where the defender is. If on the lane side, fake toward the lane and extend your inside (baseline) foot backward. Pivot quickly to the baseline, and make a one-bounce "power-dribble" to the hoop. Protect the ball with your body, and "finish" with your arms up high. Left hand move.

Tip: When you post up, start in the space above the block. If you are too low, you will find yourself too far under the basket with a bad angle when you make the drop-step move.
