Scouting: Bucket getters and weak-hand finishers

4/9/2007 - NBA

Editor's note: This is the Part 4 of a four-part series on the NBA's best post moves.

Part 1: Back to the basket moves | Part 2: Face-up games | Part 3: Jabs and fakes


These guys just have the knack for getting buckets inside. They have mastered the art of scoring around the basket without having to use polished moves -- they simply know how to throw the ball in the hole.

Most of the league's top 20 scorers have this ability, so I left them off this list.

The guys on this list create good shots by relying on "feel," with running hooks, scoop shots, double pumps in traffic, "and-1s" (scoring while getting fouled) and "H-O-R-S-E" shots.
