Elite Hoops Playset: Hawks

Posted by Aj Holland | Thursday, January 28, 2016 | Category: | 0 comments

The Atlanta Hawks have finally built their program back up and put together a team that plays well together. The former Spurs assistant coach has changed the way the players approach the game and have them playing as a unit. Plays such as the one below allow everybody to feel involved and is not too structured which makes players feel like they aren't robots.


This set starts with a ball screen set on the wing by P3. P5 then slips a ballscreen for P1 while P3 comes off of a flare screen. If not open a staggered screen is set by P3 and P4 for P2 curling around the 3 point line looking for a shot.

Elite Hoops Playset: Oklahoma

Posted by Aj Holland | Wednesday, January 13, 2016 | Category: | 0 comments

Oklahoma has one of the best teams they have had in the history of the program and Buddy Hield is one of the main reasons why this team is successful. Lon Kruger has recognized this and has designed plays to free up his star player when he gets hot. This play is quick but affective and easy for teams of all ages to run.

This play begins with P1 passing to the wing and cutting to the strong side corner. The ball is immediately swung around the perimeter to P3 and P5 fakes the ball screen. P3 then attacks baseline while P2 sprints off of a staggered screen set by P4 and P5 for a shot.

Elite Hoops Playset: Spurs

Posted by Aj Holland | Tuesday, January 5, 2016 | Category: | 0 comments

The San Antonio Spurs players may be 75 years old but the great Coach Popovich puts them in sets that help them finish in the top 3 of the Western Conference every year. With veteran players such as Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker and a superstar in Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs have no issues with the timing and angle of plays to get themselves open shots. Below is a quick hitter they run that can open up a player for layups and 3s.


This play begins with P1 passing the ball to P3 on the wing and P2 running off of a down screen from P5. P1 then receives a handoff from P3. While P1 attacks the rim P5 rescreens P2 looking for a corner 3. At that same moment P4 screens away for P3 flashing to the top.
