The great offenses in basketball revolve around getting the ball inside out for open shots, and a great way to do that is by feeding the post and then relocating once the defender turns their head. It is key that the passer does not simply just stand and watch once the ball is entered. Sometimes the passer can cut through or screen away for another guard, but for this team basketball drill, they will simply work on creating space and giving the post player a passing angle by sliding up or down after the entry pass.
This basketball drill will allow for a lot of repetitions at post-feeding and relocating, and it is also going to allow the post player to work on finishing and rebounding as well.

- The post player is going to develop their post-up skills and also work on finishing around the basket.

- Mix in pass fakes on the post feed and the kick out.

Basketball Drill Instructions
- The guard will start with the ball on the wing, and the post player will post up on the block with the dummy defender behind them with the pad.
- When the drill starts, the wing player will post feed the ball to the big man who is posting up and then relocate up or down for a kick-out shot.
- Once the shot goes up, the post player is going turn to offensive rebound and put back if the shot is missed.
- Once the ball is scored, the post player will kick it back out, and the drill will repeat, this time though, the post player will look to score, rather than kicking the ball back out.
- The wing and post player will alternate who shoots each time.
- You can set a number of total makes between the two to aim for.
- Usually, 5-8 is a good number of total makes before switching sides.
Great drill to encourage quick shooting by guard but even better for post to develop left/ r.h hooks both down, up, and across together with turn around jump shots
