NAIL ISO is a concept stemming from the NAIL entry of X-Action. If the nail player (who can be anybody; does not have to be your Center) does not deliver either handoff from X-Action, face up and look to go 1v1 with the cutting and filling ongoing.
Getting the ball to the player on the nail presents 1v1 opportunities. Here 1 enters to 5 at nail.
Note: The "nail" player does not have to be your BIG. It could be any player.
Entering the 5 triggers X-Action. 1 is first cutter, 4 is second cutter. 5 may handoff to either cutter.
2 and 3 fill up
If 5 does not handoff to either cutter, he/she may face the basket and play 1v1
If 5 dislikes the driving matchup and throws out to 2 or 3 the offense has returned to homebase. React to the next pass or follow the pass into "shirt" (ball screen.
