The Myth of the Triple Threat Position

The Myth of the Triple Threat

"Triple threat!" We've all heard a coach teach it, emphasize it, and even yell about it, to get players in a position to shoot, pass, or dribble. We've likely taught it ourselves. But, is it the right skill and mentality to teach?

The mentality of every player should be to shoot.
