BASKETBALL THOUGHTS FROM GEORGE KARL

Players dribble too much
3 second rule (move the ball)
Read the “Carolina Way”
Always get better (Have a plan, pick one thing to improve)
Teach guards how to post up, they are better passers
Run motion ending with pick n roll
Character and Chemistry are essential
If at all possible keep the middle of the floor empty for dribble penetration
Drag pick n rolls on the side are great in transition (Phoenix Suns - Steve Nash)
Be prepared for everything (being up. being down, foul trouble ect.)
Calmness as a coach on the bench filters down to the players
Team building off the court
Conditioning is very much team building, know when to push and when to pull back
