This basketball play requires you to read the zone and see what is available. If the lob is there then throw it, but if not then recognize it and hit the shooter. Don’t let your basketball team play like robots, help teach them to think the game. Take the time to develop your players mentally and it will pay off in the long run. An important key for all zone lob plays is to make sure that you passer doesn’t stare down the receiver. Look them off and then throw the lob pass.
