Attack Dribble: Post Slides Implementation Plan (Whole I)

This entry is part 16 of 24 in the series Dribbling Actions

A.  5 players 2 actions

Locate 5 players in the 5 perimeter spots.  Even if you do not plan to use a 5 out alignment, it is important to use this alignment to show the action.  This introductory drill will include two actions, both of which will be dribble penetrations.  Have the player with the ball execute an Attack action.  The player should pass to a perimeter reactor.

Once the perimeter player receives the pass, they should drive while the cutter is still in the lane area. Notice that this action could result in two players in the lane and the need for two post slides. It all depends on the timing of the drive and where the cutters are in the middle of their drive.

This can be executed in slow motion for the purposes of the demonstration.  This will be drilled in game speed to work on the finer details of the action. Players should be shown the differences of the ball handler driving left or right and how the cutter should react.  The connection between the Baseline Drive Adjustment and Post Slide should also be established to show how the two layers complement each other if the ball handler drives baseline.  On the penetration, all the perimeter players should react appropriately just as has been drilled previously.

There may be times where players “run into each other” during a slide or a rotation.  It’s tough to always avoid this completely.  This doesn’t occur often and if it does, the poor spacing is only momentary.

3 out 2 in 1 action

This building block is only necessary if a 3 out 2 in alignment is part of your offensive plan.  Locate 3 players in perimeter spots and 2 players in the post.  The guards should be in the top and wing spots while the posts can be in either the high or low post on either side.  Demonstrate where the post players should go depending on their location and the direction of the penetration relative to them.  Remember in this alignment, post slides will need to be executed by two different players.

4 out 1 in 1 or 2 actions

This building block is only necessary if a 4 out 1 in alignment is part of your offensive plan.  Locate 4 players in perimeter spots with a player in the post.  The perimeter players can be located in any of the perimeter spots while the post player can be located in anywhere in the post. Coaches can show 1 Attack Dribble action so that the post can react.  A second action can be added to this drill in order to show how guards should react if the receiver decides to penetrate immediately after receiving the pass.
