Beilein's offense

  • Some light reading, lol

    Or buy the DVD ...

    "In the DVD, Coach Tom Jicha demonstrates many more options, which are not discussed here. For example, in the "motion" set, there are three options on the first pass, nine options on the second pass, three options on the third pass, three options on the fourth pass, and five options on the fifth pass! Thus players do have freedom to read and react freely, in spite of the patterns presented above. So if you are serious about using this Michigan-style offense, be sure to get the DVDs below."

    That's 1215 different options on those "motion" sets by my count.

    I'm tempted to study this just to try to figure out what parts the Cavs are actually trying to run and when ... but no, ouch.

  • The biggest problem with this "offense" is players in the NBA are not that patient and unlike college players do not have to worry about getting benched for not being patient. LOL!!!!

    Well, if we're doing something "Spursian" the system will outlast a lot of the players. The Cavs have just never had the stomache for it in the past - except for Mike Brown's defense; and even that would have failed if Brown didn't make a deal with James and Hughes to let them do what they wanted on offense. Still took 2 years to start paying off.
