Being able to shoot the basketball on the move and when you are tired can make a big difference at the end of a game. If you have conditioned yourself the right way, you will still have the legs needed to hit big shots at the end of a game. If not, you will be tired, and your shot will come up short.
The star shooting drill is a great drill for simulating coming off of screens and cutting for a catch and shoot shot. If you are looking for a basketball drill where you can get a lot of shots on the move in a short period of time, this is a great drill to use.
