After you pass the ball, dare you “go away”, away from the ball? Fear you’ll never get it back? Ever? Go ahead and screen away and shape up! Screen away to give the ball-side spacing for the post up, for the two player game, the drive middle, and to free up the cutter off your screen. Then “shape up” – not in a Dr. Laura-kind-of-way, but a Dr. Naismith kind-of-way – back to the ball. If the person you passed the ball to is aware, he will not only look for the cutter, but look for you stepping back to the ball, as well.
