MARC IAVARONI THOUGHTS

Thanks to Coach Eric Musselman for the following basketball thoughts from Marc Iavaroni of Toronot Raptors.

1. If you want to know about great offense, talk to the great defensive coaches. Talk to them about what they can't handle, find out waht works and gives them trouble.

2. If you can guard pick and roll offenses well, you've got a pretty good defense.

3. Basketball is a game of counters. What do they do and how are going to counter it?

4. It's all about penetration. If we can keep penetration to a minimum we don't have to rotate and create problems where we have penetration in the paint.

5. With Coach Wooden it was about recruiting quickness. Trying to get a player that was quicker than an opponent and create mismatches at every position.
