    The YouTube videos are nice because everyone can watch them on their own and then work on the plays during the limited time they are together.

    As long as the video shows the play where I get the ball and everyone gets out of my way!

    Just kidding, as long as Bones cuts like he complains the Blazers don't do I'll hit him for back door layups all day.

    A lot of off ball screens on offense!

    Fundamentals win championships.

    It's 3-on-3.. Can't exactly run a lot of off ball screens.

    I don't really play off-the-ball but we'll make it work. Had 31/12/10 in a 98-90 win at rec league tonight. I manipulate the defense to open up passing or scoring lanes. Kinda LeBron-like.

    You're going to need to, because if we play a team like we did in game 2 of day 1 again.
    I'm going to be blowing right past that slow footed fool and looking for a kick to the corner if the help comes.

    Sure you can, the spacing isn't the same but it's more on the movement and quality of the screen. An well executed screen can get a shooter open in any environment. It's just that people are likely to switch all screens when playing 3 on 3.

    At any rate all you need to do is force someone to help, in which case an off ball screen basically guarantees an open look for someone.

    For sure.

    What's the difference between injured you and 100% you?

    Answering you is difficult for me.
    I've always been someone who believes that if you really can play, then you don't need to say a word.
    Lets just say, I won't be afraid to attack this year due to worrying about being able to breathe.

    No ego just like LeBron. ;)

    I'd say my comp is Wes Matthews (post Achilles): three and D, limited handles but can drive (only to the right), and enjoys post up.

    Well with me you're gonna have to. Sounds like we'll have 3 ballhandlers.

    There's a pass and screen away drill we run in practice with 3 players. A good shot can occur on every play if it's ran correctly.

    Yeah, I like handling the ball in pick n roll. I tink that's the way to go because it's hard to hit jumpers on the court we were playing on do defenses just sagged.

    Pick and roll, slip, and pop should all work. Screener forces a switch then we attack the mismatch.
