Practice Drills

To run any offense, players must be proficient in the fundamentals. This segment features six practice drills and their variations for developing fundamental skills like pivoting, cutting, spacing, pick and roll actions and getting open.

Amongst the drills, you will see a simple 3-on-0 pass and cut drill, which is a staple for the Spurs and is run in practice throughout the season. From this fundamental drill, Coach Pop is able to build into 3-on-3 and 4-on 4 weave drills that develop passing, thinking and decision-making.

An excellent drill for establishing your defense is the 4-on-4-on-4 drill. Conditioning and communication are two key elements of this competitive drill, as it features constant action and limited breaks for the players, who must learn how to be consistent with their defensive efforts as they tire quickly.

To teach several defensive principles, the Full-Court 1-on-1 Drill. This is a great drill that emphasizes defense and helps athletes practice motion offense principles. Coach Pop helps players see that even a less athletic player can still defend at a high level.

Motion Offense

With the Spurs' constant motion offense and unselfish play, they have made being a team popular again.

In this segment, you'll learn the details and origin behind Coach Pop's motion offense.

Centering his instruction around two main setups, Popovich discusses how he uses his players in the offense based on their skill set. Knowing how to get the most out of every player is essential in any offense, but Coach Popovich is one of the best at getting players in the right situations on the floor.

The first area of emphasis covered is spacing the floor. You'll learn how to get players to space out in transition and get quick hitters that can be used if everyone gets down the floor fast and maintains spacing.

Coach Pop shows multiple sets, including "Strong" and "Weak," two of the most basic motion sets used by the Spurs. Both sets will create lots of options for your players, and can include actions such as screening for shooters, dribble hand-offs and ball screens.

Coach Pop discusses the subtleties and adjustments within the offense and runs players through them multiple times, so you get a better idea of how to execute each alternative look. Whether it's working on the pick and roll from the wing or working to feed the post, Coach Popovich centers the offense around his point guard's actions.

You'll learn how to run his Loop Series, which provides even more options for meeting individual and team needs.

Coach Pop's knowledge and teaching style have helped his teams achieve success each and every year. If you want a DVD that centers around teaching players how to play offense and build their fundamental skills, this one is a must. You'll learn from one of the game's greatest coaches and discover why he's so successful year after year.
