Derrick Rose throws ball off Steven Adams, sets up his own basket (video)


Derrick Rose might never be the athlete he once was, but he can still produce. His craftiness was on full display on this play, where he drove and gained position after picking up his dribble by throwing the ball off Steven Adams.

Players should look for plays like this more often. Toss the ball off an opponent, the backboard, the bottom of the rim. It’s an underrated way to set up shots.
