“Barkley” (Perimeter to Post-Up)

Embedded below is a video on a move called a “Barkley” where a perimeter player’s drive is cut off and rather than kicking it out or bouncing his dribble out, he flips his hip and turns his drive into a post-up. I first heard the “Barkley” term from Lennie Acuff. Kawhi Leonard is the NBA player that utilizes this move best (and most often). This is a great concept to show your driving 4-man or any of your ball-handlers with good size/physicality.
