"Take" Concept from the Four T's of International Offense. Video below featuring Pau Gasol of the San Antonio Spurs.
- Euro/International concept
- Often used as false motion to disguise Spread Ball Screen alignment
- From 5-out it would begin with the ball handler(1) passing to the trailing big (5)
1 is "giving to get" - he/she passes to 5 to get it back
5 takes one dribble (may not take a dribble at all) then "plates" the ball (holds it in outside hand with palm up)
1 sprints to TAKE the ball from 5. If X1 trails, use the small advantage to score or draw a secondary defender.
After ball is taken 5 breaks the defense with a roll
X1 may slide under 5 as 1 TAKES the ball. 1 would then possibly have no advantage after taking it...
5 then TWISTS into an immediate ball screen
The angle from 5 should now induce X1 into going over the ball screen. 1 uses the small advantage to score or engage a secondary defender.
Look for roll as well...
Referring back to Frame 1, you can see how this resulted in the spread ball screen alignment
