LA Lakers Backboard Transition Drill

This is another gem I got from the LA Lakers during their Real Training Camp segment on NBATV. The beginning of the drill is something we’ve all either seen of performed in pre-game warm-ups; the old’ “Tip Drill”. Alternating offense and defense in the line of players, the players tip the ball off the backboard to each other. After several players go through the line, coach yells “REBOUND”.

The player holding the ball chins it, pivots outside and fires the ball down court to a coach. THAT team is on offense. Both teams transition as the defense matches up. Coach with the ball passes to first open player they can find in Transition and it becomes live 1-on-1.
