Thinking of using tennis balls against a wall, you guys got any drills for these that can be doable alone?

not many coaches would drill this because one handed passes should always be avoided. The reason being if at the last second a guy goes to shoot the gap/goes for the interception, you can't change your mind. If you pass with two hands, and see it, you can stop in the middle of the pass action because you have both hands on the ball. But there are situations on fast breaks and back door cuts that they can be useful, so you have to be creative in creating drills

If you really wanna learn though, put a piece of tape (and X or a square, something big enough that you can hit) on a wall and practice how many times you can hit it consecutively. It has to be perfect, really be tough on yourself, or else there is no point doing it

If you get 5 in a row, try get 6, then 7, and so on and so on. Start close and then when you start getting into the teens and twenties, take 5 steps back. Can be done off the bounce or direct. Then when this gets easy, do it on the move, from different angles, make the piece of tape smaller

people are usually weak at passing with the off hand because they don't have the muscle memory to do it. The more reps you get, and the more of a perfectionist attitude you have towards it, the faster you will get better.
