Defining Pivoting - requires understanding pivoting. Definition of pivoting is spinning on the ball of one foot, like a ballerina, without moving or dragging the pivot foot to a different location. It must remain in the same spot.
Identifying the Pivot Foot - the 1st foot that hits the floor when you catch the ball is the pivot foot. If both feet hit the floor at the same time, called a jump stop, then you can choose which foot to pivot/spin on.
Pivoting, Catching & Shooting - can happen from a jump stop and pivot into the shot, which is when you land on both feet at the same time, which allows one to choose a pivot foot, then pivot into Triple Threat and Shoot the ball. Or you catch the ball and the foot that lands first upon the pivot becomes your pivot/spinning foot, at which point you pivot/spin into Triple Threat and then shoot the ball.
