Default Re: Lakers considering running Princeton-style offense

I was too lazy to write my own, so I looked this up and pasted it for you so you can get the idea. It was NOT created by Pete Carril as some think including this article, just like the Triangle was NOT created by Tex Winter.
These are common mistakes, both offenses are much older.

As the article says it takes 15 seconds to run.......add to that the time bringing the ball up the floor........this is not made for a 24 second clock but some facets can be used. BTW, I use it in AAU as one of the many offenses we use.......but we have a 35 second clock......some ages, some tournaments have no clock at all.
