You want to be regarded as a good offensive basketball player? Pass the ball. You want other players to value you as a teammate? Set them up for easy scores. Getting by your defender, drawing a teammate’s defender and then passing to your teammate for an easy score is the essence of good offensive basketball. It has application in both zone offense and player-to-player offense. Work on your shot fakes and ball handling moves and going on a straight line to the basket not so much to get points for yourself but to give your teammate the gift of two easy points.
