When 4 moves to set pick for 1,
5 goes down and sets pick for 3.

This is the position that each player should be in after the picks are set by players 4 and 5.
If 1 does not get the lay up or short jumper, then 1 sets a good low pick for 5
4 sets a pick for 3 at the same time.
5 pops into the key with hands up looking for the pass from 2
At the same time 5 is popping into the key area, 3 is also coming off of the pick from 4, and sliding to the lane with hands out looking for the pass from 2.
This is the position that each player should be in after the picks are made by 1 and 4.
5 and 3 are both looking for the ball from 2 and have a hand extended out giving 2 a target to throw to.
