“The Beauty of Ball Reversal”
Posted by Steve Bzomowski on September 6, 2006
If when playing offense, your team did the same thing over and over again, you would find no success, especially if there was no movement of players or of the ball. Moving the ball makes the defense move and moving defenses are defenses that get tired. The best place to move the ball is from one side of the court to the other, from wing to wing. This gives you the optimal angle/angles into the post and maximizes the territory the ball covers; it makes defense take away certain things, too. By moving the ball and making the defense commit to taking something away, it always leaves another “look” open. That is the essence of team offensive basketball.
