You can do this at any dead ball situations (free throws, time outs, balls thrown out of bounds, etc). I have those guys sitting next to me on the bench, so when that situation arose, I knew right where they were at. I didn't like it when I had to get up (of course I was always up) and look down the bench for a particular player that fit that role.
We did a lot of subbing during free throw situations. Have someone up at the table to go in after the second shot is made. This allowed us to set our defense for both half and full court. It also stopped the other team from fast breaking and getting an easy look.
You will find that with the less talent you have the more things you have to think of to make sure you get an edge. Keep an open mind and look for ways to help get your team an edge.
What do you think? Do you sub offense / defense during dead ball situations?
