LMAO......for starters, why don't you watch the debate on this offense on ESPN's site between Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith, they both laughed at the thought of Princeton being run.

What the non-coaching astute think is the Princeton Offense being run by Adelman is actually a hybrid based on the principles of Princeton, it's called the Corner Series offense......as I said earlier, a true Princeton cannot be run in the NBA but a creative redesign of it can work. Adelman developed the "Corner" with the help of Pete Carril.

Now.....what made this work for Adelman is that he had one of the best passing Bigs combo in NBA history in CWebb and Vlade........Pau Gasol can pass, Bynum can't, and this would destroy the offense completely.....not to mention it would waste Bynum's advantages plus tire him out.
Adelman is not a one trick pony, he knows several offenses and can create and design offenses to fit his roster.....Brown can....um......tie his shoes

Hope this is understandable for you
