Share The Ball

I love watching a basketball game and observing the players on the floor passing the ball to their teammates. That’s what you’re supposed to do right? But today, many players feel the need to shoot before they pass. I dislike it very much when guys try and go one-on-one too much. Look, Isolation’s are fine and necessary every now and then when there’s a mismatch; but when the double team comes, you need to get rid of the ball and hit the open man.

On the fast break, you need to get the ball to the player that has a better shot. Push the ball ahead out in transition.

Just because you have a good shot, doesn’t make it the right to shoot. Someone may have a better shot, a great shot.

There’s nothing more refreshing to watch when teammates on the floor move the ball and everyone gets a touch. Ball movement also wares down the defense creating open looks. Hit the post, reverse the ball, move and screen.

There’s nothing worse in basketball than watching selfish players go for their points. It also pains me to see players dribble, dribble, and dribble some more without going anyway.

The game is much more enjoyable when the ball gets reversed on the perimeter.

If you have a ‘big’ that is a good offensive player in the post, get him touches. There’s nothing as entertaining t as hitting the post and watching the guy take a shuffle dribble, recognize the double is coming and hitting their teammate spotting up on the opposite side of the floor.

Free up good outside shooters. Set screens. Pick and Pop and Pick and Rolls.

Get everyone involved and by doing so you’ll achieve great success.

Good luck with your game,

Coach O
