BASKETBALL THOUGHTS FROM PETE GAUDET

Find good things to break down a defense.  Break the whole defense down, then find ways to allow an individual to break his defender down.

The "Five R's of Posting" --
Run (the floor)
Rebound (post players ticket into the game)
Rooting out (post up)
Rotate & Recover (defensive)
Relocate (with and without the ball)

You never need more than two dribbles unless you are a point guard.

The ability to back up with a dribble and change directions is a skill not many have.

Not many players can properly feed the post.

Push the ball up the floor then decide you don't want to fast break as opposed to walking the ball up and then wishing you would've have pushed the ball.
