It seems the wheels in Coach Cal’s crazy cranium are-a-turning, and the result is likely to be a heaping helping of the Dribble-Drive offense come this fall. On a recent Lexy Cast, Coach talked about the increase in driving dribbles and how he can use the offense to best fit this year’s personnel.
“Right now, I’m spending my time trying to come up with ways that we’re going to play the dribble-drive more than we did a year ago, but with this group. We got a left-hander on the team in Terrence Jones. How do we now put him in the right spots so he can do his best? How ’bout this is a team maybe we go with five-out…so that we have the true strength of our team?
“Where last year with DeMarcus [Cousins] and Patrick [Patterson] and Daniel [Orton], we had terrific players around the goal. We had to play that way. Now we do have some strong guys that are bigger players but maybe a little more perimeter-oriented, so I’ve got to figure that out. My time’s got to be spent doing that.”
Just one more reason to look forward to basketball season. Because, you know, you needed one.
