30 second time outs

Monday, January 25, 2010


I don't believe in Quantum Physics when it comes to matters of basketball.
While reading - think "Crash Davis " in Bull Durham
(remember - Bull Durham comes with an "R" rating.)


I believe in the basketball.
I believe in running the floor,
the first open man,
the ball reversal,
the open shot,
the jump stop,
and the pivot foot.
I believe in setting screens,
using screens,
dribbling for a reason,
good passing angles,
being "shot-ready"
and catching passes with two hands.
I believe in spacing, court vision, the"assist/turnover ratio", and the concept of "relative motion".
I believe that there oughtta be a constitutional amendment outlawing the dunk and the hand-check.
I believe in a good, defensive stance,
pressure on the basketball,
influencing to the sideline,
preventing penetration,
fronting the post in the "red-zone" and playing behind in the "smile".
I believe in the "ball-man-line",
help-side defense,
checking cutters,
committing to the basketball,
taking the charge rather than blocking the shot,
team rebounding,
and I believe in the beauty of long, solid possesions that always result in a shot on offense and a contested shot on defense.
