It seems as though the offense we run is just not effective. Either it's just too basic and easily defended or we don't have the player to make it work. The ball screens we set almost never produce an open shot for either the handler or the screener. There is a lot of motion going on off the ball in the paint area opposite of the ball that rarely produces anything either except a log jam in the paint. It's so obvious when the teams we play get open three after open three and most of our three shots are highly contested or simply in desperation. They drive and kick or work it down low then kick, we rarely ever move the ball below the free throw line. The motion of the offense simply doesn't create enough open shots. Some on here complain that we just stand around with the ball, but that's not really true, it's just the offense we ran produced nothing and who ever ends up with the ball under 10 seconds has to do something. I'm not basketball savvy enough to know much more that it looks bad, at time really bad. Maybe we should become more basic and just put Yor on the blocks, posting up and setting screen for a corner guy (Waters/Dizzy), and have McGriff working a pick and roll with the other two. IDK I'm just throwing it out there.
