At a coaching clinic a few years ago, in front of a large audience, one of the coaches asked me, "what part of the game of basketball is most connected to winning?" to which i replied, "Some say the team that out rebounds the opponent usually wins the game. Some say the team that has the least number of turnovers usually wins the game. Some say the team that makes the most free throws usually wins the game. Still others say the team that shoots the highest field goal percentage usually wins the game. From my experience, I say the team that scores the most points usually wins the game."
I am grateful that the person who asked the question was a good sport. But I believe the point was well taken. Basketball is a sport of scoring. And, obviously, the only opportunity to score is when your team has the ball. This issue focus on scoring; more specifically scoring through a motion offense. Enjoy!
