If you beat your defender off the dribble and then kick out to an open teammate, you need to relocate immediately. If they re-drive the ball, then you could end up being open for a shot. Many players tend to penetrate, kick out, and then stand and watch; this is a really bad habit.
With this basketball drill, though, you will be able to work on having the player relocate after driving and kicking. It not only works on developing that good habit, but it is also a game realistic basketball shooting drill because this type of situation happens numerous times throughout a game.
