Basketball Play - "TAKE" Concept

"TAKE" Concept

Randy Sherman 04/24/2017

The TAKE Concept is common in International basketball. In essesence the player passing to the big man (1 as shown) is "giving to get." He/she is passing then using acceleration to "take" the ball back from 5. The acceleration can lead to a small advantage. 5 may make one dribble, but often they step to the catch and simply "plate" the ball by holding it out to side with palm up. 1 and 5 read whether X1 trails or goes under as the ball is being taken. If the defense goes under and there is no small advantage for 1, 5 twists into a ball screen. As shown this serves as a bit of false motion into Spread Ball Screen offense. See More
