"I think that the game loses something here. I have always enjoyed watching a good, well rounded and balanced attack that included players who could play w/ their backs to the basket. I beleive this trend away from this is a result of: 1. Catering to…"

"Recently I have actually watched a somewhat successful pick and roll executed on TV. Some coaches are actually reading some of these posts. As far as the big man goes... just give it up. We have lost a generation of coaches or actually I should be…"

"Watched the first half of the 94-95 Finals I believe it was with Dream and Shaq squaring off.  Wow, what a different game.  Hardly any ball screens and virtually no iso's on the perimeter.  It was really interesting to see the…"

Preface:This is the second entry is my "The 3 Types of Bigs" blog series. Once again these are written from a player development POV.

They’re usually good on the boards and good position defenders in the post. They can push people around and set good screens for shooters or play well in the pick…See More

De-Evolution of the Back-to-the-Basket Big

The De-Evolution of the Back-to-the-Basket BigIf you’ve watched, coached, played or refereed any basketball in the last decade, the basketball purist has seen a steady decline of back-to-the-basket big play like Chamberlain, Abdul-Jabbar, Moses, or yes, even the overly pugnacious Bill Walton (I can still only take his commentary in small doses). With the game moving at an even faster pace and the institutional popularity of the three-point shot, the inside post game has become less prevalent.…See More

Retired in 1998 from the Air Force (202X0B/209/1N6/1N0).  I played intramurals and base level basketball while in the Air Force.  Played with and against some really great players.  I would imagine you had the same experience.  How's that Masters program working for you?
