For any good zone basketball play, it is important to get the zone to shift and move the basketball with passing. This basketball play is designed to overload the zone to get a shot, or bring the ball back out of the overload and get the defense to turn their head and relax which opens up the lob. It is important for this play to work that players are not catching and holding the ball, but that they keep it moving and remain a scoring threat.
