This is a great backdoor basketball play because it has multiple options, even if the backdoor is not available. To make this basketball play work you need to sell the action before the backdoor pass. Doing this makes the defense respect the shooter coming out, and also doesn’t let on that it is really a backdoor play. If run the correct way this can be a really good play to get an easy basket at the rim.
