Break down of a Front Pivot vs a Reverse Pivot

A Reverse Pivot is when a player uses their non-pivot foot to rotate in the opposite direction by swinging the foot backwards instead of forwards. This is often known as "opening/squaring up". This is used to create space for an offensive player who has a defensive player between them and the basket to allow for a drive or shot attempt.
