I don’t think there is anything more important to effective play on the basketball court at either end of the floor than spacing.
This is the secret to Bob Knight’s success as a basketball coach. Spacing is involved in all aspects of basketball and is important for effective play. In this unique DVD, Knight explains why spacing is so important offensively, defensively and in conversion and shows how to implement these concepts into your program.
OFFENSIVE SPACING – Create the space you need to execute your offense. Learn to create enough room on the offensive end of the court so each of your players has the ability to: Cut, screen, go after a rebound, drive to the basket, or get open for a shot. Good offensive spacing can make any offense more effective.
Knights Shares coaching insights on how to get more out of your offense, thoughts on alignment, he shows how spacing can improve your screening, and how spacing good spacing in the post can increase your trips to the free throw line. He thoroughly discusses areas such as: Spacing; Movement, Offensive Conversion, Mismatches, High Offense, Three Man Front, Screening, And more! Learn how to get your best scorer open against a Box & 1 or using Knight’s triangle alignment. See how Knight-coached teams used spacing to attack the 2-3 zone, 3-2 zone, and a 1-3-1 zone, the full court 2-2-1 press, the 1-2-1-1 press, as well as the 1-2-1-1 half court trap.
Knight teaches these concepts using extensive marker board diagrams, live demonstration clips and game cut ups for you to study and show your team.
DEFENSIVE SPACING – Knight delivers his strategies for using good spacing, positioning and conversion on defense to limit the space an offense needs to be effective. He covers conversions, playing ball side, playing help side, jumping to the basketball, help and recover, and post defense.
Knight demonstrates and explains his defensive concepts and drills on court and provides game cut ups so you can see what these concepts look like in live situations. From youth basketball to the pro level, good spacing is a requirement for reaching the championship level.
