Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Pt.2

Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Pt.2

Gerard Hillier 06/15/2016

Here are some more basic drills we have found extremely valuable during the "implementing Dribble Drive" phase, which we still use on a daily/weekly basis (they are a modified version of the traditional DDM Blood Drills). The importance of being able to create a "split" (where two defenders commit to the ball carrier) is pararmount within our DDM system, but the ability to be able to make an appropriate read/decision is just as important. There is no point getting in to the paint if you are just going to throw the ball away. What we are doing in this series is creating gamelike situations for our players, then letting them play it out and build on their decision making ability. You can move the initial setup to suit your teams needs, and all players are encouraged to play all positions/roles as part of their basketball IQ development. See More

Dribble Drive Motion - Creating a Split & Decision Making Work

Gerard Hillier 06/10/2016

Here are some basic drills we have found extremely valuable during the "implementing Dribble Drive" phase, which we also use on a daily/weekly basis. The importance of being able to create a "split" (where two defenders commit to the ball carrier) is pararmount within our DDM system, and just as important is the ability to find the open player (from where the 2nd defender came from) for a high percentage & open scoring option. Our "Decision Making" breakdown work is by far the most important part of our practice plan when it comes to our offensive system, very rarely will we conduct 5on5 for great periods of time (no more than 20mins per practice), rather we choose to place as much time in to 2on1, 2on2, 3on2, & 3on3 situational decision making as possible within our practice plan. We have found this approach to be very successful, creating an enviroment where players are making high percentage decisions/reads on a regular basis. There is a reasonable amount of "ugly basketball" when we first implement the DDM system, and we encourage our coaches to try and let the players "organically grow" within the system and make their own decisions/reads, though this is often easier said than done, try and "guide" the players decision making rather than making the decision for them. We encourage questions like "what was your thought process on that decision" & "what did you see that triggered that decision" See More

Zone Quick Hitter - Dribble Push

Michael Lynch 11/13/2018

Here is a way to incorporate a dribble drive attack into your zone offense. Using a wing dribble entry, we shift the defense to the ball side, then set a backside ball screen to create a 2/1 on the backside.

Basketball Play - 4v4 Neutral Restrictions

4v4 Neutral Restrictions

Michael Lynch 08/31/2018

Using four out perimeter spacing we try to recreate game like situations in the short sided game (SSG) format. Here we have our most common actions within our Dribble Drive Motion system. Starting the SSG in a neutral scenario, it is up to the offense to use a pre-determined action to create A) a Double Gap and B) Drive the Basketball into it. Coaches can pre-determine the action or simply allow players to create freely. See videos below for game examples of these actions!

Basketball Play - Boston College 4v4 Transition Drill

Boston College 4v4 Transition Drill

Michael Lynch 08/13/2018

The progression of drills is really effective in this Boston College "Fast Break Concepts" video created by Coach Chris Oliver of @BballImmersion. The 4v4 Transition Drill that begins at about the 7:00 mark was one that I thought was particularly useful. The Offense starts with a slight 4 v 2 advantage and seeks to make a pitch ahead pass for a score. Whether the offense misses or makes, the defense will then take the ball back up the court 4v4.

Basketball Play - Dribble Drive Motion: Chair Drill

Dribble Drive Motion: Chair Drill

Michael Lynch 07/04/2018

As part of #PlayerDevelopmentWeek I am putting together a series of drill progressions that we use in order to develop skills to fit our Dribble Drive Motion Offense. in this last installment we are focusing on "Shooting". On top of developing our players' ability to attack, finish & come to clean stops we want our players to be able to make the "Quick Pitch" pass vs helping defenses. We want all of our players who are not involved in the drive to the rim to have a "Catch to Shoot" mentality. We play heavy emphasis on players catching the basketball with the ability to rise up and shoot immediately. The "Chair Drill" presented below is a staple 2/0 Shooting Drill that is designed to shoot the three most common Drive & Kick opportunities that our players get. Players get 2-3 shots at each of the three locations, and then the same is repeated on the opposite end of the floor. This drill is one that could be easily tweaked and catered to fit your offense's most common shots as well.
