The Drop Step 

Looking For Something Else? 

The drop step has been around forever, however the most recent player who is known for using the drop step is Shaq of the NBA. He was a very big powerful Center who really knew how to use is size, not to mention has also had a ton of skill. 

However, you don't need to be huge to be able to use a drop step, an example of this would be Quincy Acy. Quincy played against big seven footers and he was only 6'8 or 9 but how could he successfully use the drop step against bigger players? One reason was he was fearless and two, he had it down just like a good player has the basics down. By doing the drop step properly you should be very successful against players of all heights (obviously if my 6'2 body drop steps against a seven footer I will not be successful too many times).
