During today's NBA Draft Combine on ESPNU, the Small Forwards were put through this excellent 1-on-1 Closeout Drills to test the players' offensive and defensive skills in isolation situations. I love this drill because it puts the players in a realistic situation closing out from help defense to a 1-on-1 situation.
Coach with the ball passes to the wing and the defense jumps into help. Then that coach feeds the post and on the dribble the defense stunts. The post-coach then passes the ball out to the wing to an offensive player and the defense closes out to the offense. On the catch it becomes live 1-on-1.
