A behind the back pass to a target 15 feet away using only your peripheral vision after quickly discerning which hoop to pass it through at a moments notice is impressive. I don't know whether you or your mates could do it on your first try, but I'd bet against it.

I agree with you that Wall doesn't have the elite vision or the great feel for when to pass the ball of a Nash or Chris Paul, but his touch when passing the ball (the actual technical aspect of passing the ball) is as good as any player in the league IMO. That's what that drill showed to a limited extent IMO.
