    Yeah Caliparis "throw the ball out and go play" offense is tough to run.

    Well, the DDO is a little more complicated than that. They do have a ton of reads in their system. But they don't have anywhere near the off ball action or variety of screens we use. I do think it is far easier for a point guard to pick up and excel at immediately, though, because they do a good job of clearing the lane for him to create off the bounce.

    Thanks for the complement. So instead of using your brain you get vulgar. Who is the dick?

    The name is Higginbotham, not Naismith.

    Plus Naismith was a horrible coach.

    What is the most difficult thing to teach young players in Billy's offense is to not take good shots, but work for better ones. Most of the kids in his system were the star players at their High Schools and many were coached to take any good shots that they saw because the other guys were no where near as good. Habits like that are very hard to break.

    I saw one play in the second half that was what we try to do run to perfection. There was dribble penetration along the baseline causing weakside rotations toward the basket. The baseline passing lane wasn't closed, so there was a pass to the opposite corner for a decent look at a "3". Help was coming from the elbow area, so there was a pass to a better look at a "3" in the area just vacated, but rotations were coming. Now the whole defense is rushing to that side of the court and a simple pass to the opposite side rendered a wide open 3 by an excellent shooter. String music! (Joe Dean died today. RIP) Pretty much a 3 point layup.

    I nudged my wife and said "Billy is going to like that."
