The video that I showed you is one of the most popular on the internet as far as great clips to show teams on how to play the game. There is so much written on PLAY THE RIGHT WAY and sayings like this. To be honest I don't think anyone truly knows the right way to play / teach the game because is so subjective.
I do know one thing is the 1986 Boston Celtics team was one of the best of all time and had 5 Hall of Fame Players on it. They were led by Larry Bird one of the fiercest competitors that the NBA has ever seen. The biggest stat that Bird has in my opinion was the year before he came in the league as a rookie the Boston Celtics won 29 games. His rookie year with basically the same roster led the Celtics to 61 wins and lost in the Eastern Conference Championship. Bird had an impact on winning like no other.
The keys to take out of this is how the ball moves. Bird was clearly the best player on the team and they ran a lot through him, but everyone on the floor was a weapon because of their ability to move the ball, screen effectively, and cut to the basket. When he ball moves like it did with them so many other opportunities open up. SO many times you saw good screening lead to someone getting an open shot or a screener cutting to the basket for an open layup.
So much of our game is about shooting the ball, working on crazy moves that only the elite can do which won't help most of the players that are trying these 12 dribble ISO moves. If you look across the NBA there are 30 teams and roughly 450 roster spots. In those 450 spots only 99 players are currently taking 10 shots a game or more. That is roughly 3 players per team. That means the other 2 players that play with these players have to figure a way to stay relevant without having plays consistently run for them.
Watch how the Celtics ran up and down the court to push the tempo of the game. The NBA wasn't as space and pace driven as it is today, but they played the game pretty fast. In the half court they just kept passing until they found a great shot to shoot. Ball movement, getting the ball into the paint, screening, and moving without the ball was such a big part of their offensive success.
When you are working with your players emphasize passing the ball, setting great screens, and cutting to the basket. They are simple things that you don't have to be physically dominating to do. Passing and moving is so good for our game.
You can get on YouTube and search out so many great cutters and passers in our game.
