Well for me it's a 300mm f/2.8 on one body and a 70-200 on the other, so I'm thinking you shouldn't be having much trouble making the switch. For one thing, if a fast break was coming at me and I was holding the 70-200, I'd just shoot the break with it rather than trying to make the switch. As for the more predictable flow of the game, I keep one in my lap and one on the floor to the right of me, positioned so I can pick it up in portrait mode and fire as necessary. The 300 is the one that stays in my lap when I'm not using it, sort of upside down so when I grab it, it's in the position I need it to be in (on a monopod, so maybe this helps); the 70-200 is the one on the floor. Other than a lot of practice, I don't know of any way to be quicker. And just for the record, I find this switching to be much quicker/easier than when shooting soccer, standing and trying to manage a long lens on a monopod and a shorter lens on my shoulder.
