As players have developed over the years, so has the ball screen offense. Recent coaches on all levels of the game have figured out ways to get their best ball handlers the opportunity to make plays off a ball screen while the players without the ball can float to spots they feel comfortable. In "Waggle" the off guard gets to come off of a ball screen and have the entire side of the floor available to make a play.

Sometimes quick hitters are needed in the game of basketball. The long, complicated plays are great and memorized if practiced regularly but if a team has scouted and prepared then what happens next? "Zipper Ball Screen" is a set used by many teams late or sometimes even early in the shot clock to give players the opportunity to make something happen and play to their strengths.
