Default Re: Championship Rotations

I think 'Antoni's idea of defense is to let the opponent score 2 points and then we come down and hit a 3

It's not anywhere near as simple as putting defensive players into the game that makes a good defense, it is how to play defense as a team, knowing what to do as a go under a screen or over it, who rotates and when, which way to force a guy to the help.......there are a ton of things that a team has to be taught as a team.....not individuals.
You see the Lakers every game, we either have 2-3 guys try to pick 1 guy up or no one picks a guy up and he hits an open shot......there are even times where 3 guys rotate to a non threat away from the basket, leaving good shooters open. Team Defense is not being taught and it really shows.
