01. Michael Jordan – Defensive Philosophy

N° 01/05 - Identify your opponent's weaknesses and tendencies. Do they prefer to go left? Go right? If they like to go right, then you make them go left. If they can shoot, then make them drive... Make your opponent do things they are not comfortable with.

02. Michael Jordan – Defensive Stance

N° 02/05 - Feet shoulder-width apart so you can react a little bit better, one hand mirroring the ball and the other hand trying to knock the ball loose from underneath. Don't trying knocking the ball from the top because that's how you'll foul the opposing player.

04. Michael Jordan – Team Defense

N° 04/05 - Whether it's one pass away or two passes away to your man, you must always maintain visual contact with your man and the ball. If the offensive player attacks, then you react by step-sliding towards them and still maintain vision of your man.

03. Michael Jordan – Defensive Vision

N° 03/05 - Use your peripheral vision to keep an eye on your man and the ball. Don't turn your head left and right because that split second you lose sight of your man or ball is when you realise you're in a disadvantageous situation. It only takes a split second for someone to score on you.
