This is very excellent move cause it will create more variations or options from the team. Thanks

No matter which player is you best player/scorer, they will eventually be open because by the end of the play, everyone has became an option at some point or the other. The 1 or the 4 after the 4 backscreens, the 3 off the double, the 2 off the screens from 4 and 5, and if they hit the 3 in the corner off the double, the 5 could post ball side after screening the 3....I love it!

Could you just run this play as a regular play and not inbound??

good play but it is a little complicated for youth players, don't you think? I play for a high school in Memphis,Tn (white station high)
and osme of the guys can't really run this play effectively. I was just saying.

We recently used this play with 7 seconds to go down 3pts at the college level. We had our leading scorer inbound the ball and act as the decoy. The defenders cheated to his side and #2 nailed the 3pt shot off the down screen to put us into OT and the win. Excellent mis-direction play.
