This is one of my favorite [tag]basketball defense drills[/tag]. The purpose of this [tag]basketball drill[/tag] is defensive intensity with no fouls and offensive toughness with a good pass.
Two players stand 30 feet away from each other and you have a monkey in the middle player. The middle player runs at the player with the [tag]basketball[/tag], under control, and hawks the ball with aggressiveness, yet under control too. No fouls but big time aggressiveness.
The offensive man must pivot away from the defense for at least 5-7 seconds, not letting the defense tie him up. No dribbling.
The offensive player then pivots and passes to the other player and it must be a good pass. No lobs. Must be a crisp bounce pass.
Defense turns around and runs under control to the other player and does the same thing.
Rotate whenever you like. Give this a try and you will be amazed at the results!
