When I play pick-up ball, my teammates usually know me well enough to run an easy play for me. When everybody is worn down and we just need an easy basket, I’ll check the ball at the top of the key, and a teammate will come up and stand in front of my defender. I hand them the ball, they hand it back, I take a step back and fire up a 3-pointer. It’s not the most impressive play, but I’m a pretty solid shooter, and if nothing else, at least we get a decent shot off.
