In his press conference today John Calipari discussed the issue of seeking an offensive balance. In his dribble drive motion offense players drive to score, but must also look for teammates who are in position to score.
Calipari told the media, "(The players) are great. I told them that yesterday when we got done with practice. They have respect
for us as a staff; they have respect for the past results. They know. So obviously, should we
have been getting rougher earlier? Maybe. We are not passing the ball to each other right now.
You drive to pass, this offense isn't the same offense. You must drive to score. But, when you
drive to score, you have to have your head up so that you can see and recognize who's open,
and we're not there yet. So I can have them drive to pass, and we wouldn't have any offense.
It's not one guy. Sometimes guys think it's okay, but when someone passes them up?! Oh my
gosh! So what do you do? You put the tape on from each player who missed a guy. Now you
just missed that guy! What are you doing? You missed him! Are you that selfish? Go to the next
guy. Look! He's wide open! Why didn't you pass it to that guy in the corner? We're trying to get
them to understand. We are all passing up everybody. So we did a soft tape too. And, I told the
guys, I said no laughing. No laughing!"
