    John Calipari's Dribble Drive Motion Offense

    Personally, I LOVE this offense. I really think if you look at our personnel, a grouping of this lineup would run his base set set very well:

    PG Colvin
    SG Christopherson
    SF Gilstrap
    PF Brackins
    C Hamilton

    His base set calls for the two wing players three point depth, free throw line extended, the power forward on the left block, the center left of the top of the key behind the three point line, and the pg first attacks the defense from adjacent to the center.

    This offense has many keys and adjustments off of it to get your best shooter open looks, your best post player room to roam, and most importantly your best ballhandlers space to get into the lane and finish layups. Its easy to scout, but if the players keep there spacing no matter what the defense does good execution will beat it. I know coach Cal is not the most liked coach in America, but he does run a great offense. Coach Mac could take a thing or two away from his teachings.

    except nothing up to this point has shown that gilstrap can actually dribble.

    Re: John Calipari's Dribble Drive Motion Offense

    Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't McD say (either in preseason presser or in an interview) we would run more of a dribble weave/dribble drive type offense now that we have a more atheltic squad. This would ensure that everybody would be moving at all times and also put pressure on the other teams D to always be in good position.

    I have seen him have the ability to penetrate, but with the floor spread and Colvin and Christopherson called upon as the main two players to penetrate any defense, he wouldn't even have to be the best ball handler.

    Maybe he said it, but I haven't seen much evidence of this on the court.

    The title of this thread about made me puke. I hope you're not suggesting that he came up with this offense... The dribble drive has been around for over 20 years.

    That's what I was getting at. Where is it at if he truly did say it and I'm not just thinking that he did b/c it's what I think we should be doing. Constant movement on O is way more difficult to guard then our current "nobody move and let's see if we can get the ball inside by just standing still and not creating a passing lane offense"

    He is the most successful coach running this offense right now, so anytime this scheme is brought up....his name is attached to it. Why is that so hard to understand....but, thanks for attacking me. Anybody who has played the game knows this is not a new fad, but he has lots of good ideas to make his system work for the talents of his players.

    Oh, I see what you're saying. Yeah, I agree with that.

    I wasn't attacking, I was clarifying. Calipari is a snake-oil salesman. It's not just that he uses the offense and runs it well, it's that he himself suggests that it's his offense that he came up with, which is simply not true. Drives me crazy to see other people give him credit for something he essentially stole. That said, there probably isn't a coach out there today that isn't using an offense they borrowed from someone else, myself included. The difference is, I don't try to put my name in front of it.

    Ok, I just figured you were attacking me to take away from the conversation for some reason. But yes, all good coaches are really good copy-catters as well. So, you like the offense, no?

    No, really wasn't attacking you at all...just Calipari. I hate that weasel. Meh, there are some things I like about, but it doesn't work for my team this year. It probably isn't real hard for a coach like him to make any offense work with the talent he has on his team either.

    And I'm actually a big proponent of the five man motion offense....probably I'm partial because thats what we ran back home and so I have a good understanding of it. Personally I think running too many sets makes us easy to scout and allows the defense to setup against us every time. The five man motion is impossible to scout, you are left to defend against the strengths of the players. What issues are you running into with that offense....not enough talent at the guard position?

    We don't have a lot of speed or depth this year at all, especially at guard.

    Watch the tapes. Quez has very good handles for his size. Hell, he dribbles better than half our guards do. You don't take it to the rack like he does without being able to handle it well.
