The Elbow Handoff Drill

This basketball practice drill is easy to do by yourself and simulates taking a handoff from a teammate and making a jump shot at the elbow. It imitates a popular scoring option used by San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker.

To do the drill, set up a chair at the elbow. Put a basketball on top of the chair, then set up near the corner.

Sprint to the elbow and take the ball off the chair and immediately go into a jump shot.

Make 20 at both elbows.
