    "Exciting Basketball"

    I hear this term bandied around a lot, often in description of Mac's offense, or in another way. My question is, what in your opinion constitutes "exciting basketball"
    For me, a well executed offense, of almost any kind is "exciting" basketball. I love watching a well excecuted Princeton cut, but I also love watching Memphis' dribble drive motion, Gonzaga's flex, Wake Forest's offense, and Illinois and Ku's motion.
    The offense's I don't like watching are: Duke, all they do is jack threes, Our high school's because it is a terrible stagnant offense.
    So, what is your opinion of an "exciting offense" ?

    Re: "Exciting Basketball"

    I love the Memphis dribble drive as well, even though I don't like Memphis and know we don't have the drivers to execute this offense at the moment at Iowa State. It is very exciting. You also cannot leave out the pros: Anything run by Mike D'Antoni is great, loved watching Phoenix during his years there. Although I don't think it is championship winning, it will win games and is fun to watch!

    I like it, I think HB And CB together would be a superforce unstopable by human kind maybe a trillion points a game would satisfy the masses!

    Re: "Exciting Basketball"

    North Carolina's offense with their secondary break, and man to man defense that guard's the passing lanes aggressively.

    BINGO! We have a winner. We don't attack passing lanes unless the passes happen inside the three point line. We have absolutely no on ball pressure and I don't know why.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I love the Roy Williams secondary break but I will take a properly run motion offense or even it's hybrid cousin the Princeton offense any day... If you have to play slow (Princeton) at least have everyone MOVING...
