Elite Hoops Basketball: Bulls False Motion

Posted by Aj Holland | Wednesday, April 19, 2017 | Category: | 0 comments

Playoffs are here!!! The Chicago Bulls may be the 8th seed but they have hit the Celtics where it hurts and took the first two games in the Garden. Part of this success has come from the big play from superstars D Wade and Jimmy Butler, which are some things that can't be taught, but a lot of the success comes from plays such as the one below. This play gives the post options to pass to either wing or hit the 4 man for a slip to the basket for an easy lay.

Play begins with P1 passing to P4 and running off of an immediate dribble handoff. P1 then hits P5 at the pinch post. P1 and P4 then set down screens for P3 and P2 giving the big the choice of who to pass too.

Elite Hoops Playset: Mavs

Posted by Aj Holland | Thursday, April 13, 2017 | Category: | 0 comments

The Dallas Mavericks have been in the news recently with Tony Romo getting recognized in their uniform and participating in walk through, but they have not been slacking on the playsets that they are putting in. This simple play is used at all levels of basketball and contains an odd action with the 4 man running off of a staggered screen. This forces guards to have to defend in a position that they are not used to being in. 

Play begins with a pick and pop between P1 and P4. The ball is then passed to P3 while P4 runs off of a staggered screen from P2 and P5 looking for a short corner jumpshot.
