Please note that I am posting this game report in ADVANCE of the game. Here is a question for you: can the Read and React Offense be taught in a 90-minute practice? I am about to find out tomorrow. I have some friends who have an adult men's basketball team in a local amateur league. They are GREAT guys, have good fun together, but since 2006 when I met them, they have never had a winning season. In fact, I'm pretty sure they have never had more than two wins in a season. Using a modified method of teaching the RRO that I wrote about in 2011, I taught the guys the elements of the offense in a 90-minute practice two weeks ago, then taught the guys who didn't make it to that practice at another practice this last Thursday. The practices went really well. There were some skeptics at first, but they really took to it and at the end of 90-minutes they were scrimmaging 5-out and 4-out against a shell defense with the following layers: 1. Pass & Cut 2. Post pass and cut 3. Dribble at 4. Circle movement dribble penetration 5. Post slides, dribble penetration 8. Circle reverse 9. Post screens 12. Ball screens But will it take? In the heat of battle can they and will they play in the offense? Or will they abandon it because it is not habit and must be thought about all the time?
