Learn NBA 'Floppy' Offense

Post by bobheckler on Wed Sep 18, 2013 12:31 pm

I posted an instructional video about the NBA 'Horns' offense, perhaps the most popular offensive set used in the NBA.  Here's another one, 'Floppy'.

It's not a video, unfortunately.  If I can find an instructional video, I'll post it.

Summary:

This is a common NBA play in which a good shooter is under the basket and has the option of coming off a stagger screen on one block or a single screen on the opposite block. If the shooter is not open for a shot off the screen, the play continues into a sideline ball screen.

Personnel:

A good shooter who is comfortable shooting off screens, and also capable of attacking and reading a ball screen. (like Jeff Green).

Instructions


Set up with the ball at the top of the key, a good shooter under the basket, a stagger screen on the left block and a single screen on the right block.
2 has the option which screen to use.




2 chooses the single screen and runs tight off the screen, reading the defender ready to catch and shoot.
If the shot is not open, 2 has ball at the wing and the play continues to a sideline ball screen.




2 has the ball free throw line extended and waits for other players to space out and the sideline ball screen.
3 spaces out to the corner.
1 spaces out to the slot (lane line extended) or wing.
4 spaces out to ballside corner.




5 sprints up and sets the sideline ball screen for 2.
2 reads the ball screen and looks to attack depending on how the ball screen is played by his man, the screeners man, and the help defenders.

Bob,

I finally gave this a look, and I like it a lot. The video Sam provided was helpful, too. Thanks to you both.

I wish I'd had this stuff when I was coaching, because having a simple, effective offense was the hardest aspect for me to provide to the kids.

I think I like the variety of options in Horns better, but I like the opportunities for post scoring in Floppy better. If I was coaching at the high school level, I might use both. At lower levels, there just isn't enough time to teach two offenses to kids.

Thanks again for posting this.

outside,

I prefer Horns too.  Perhaps that's why it's one of the most used offenses in the NBA, it has so many options.

Which you'd use more, as a coach, would depend upon what your roster looks like.  If you have a good shooter, you'd use Horns.  If you have some good bigs, you might prefer Floppy.

I would think it's not just the lack of time to teach 2 offenses, but the head-exploding amount of complexity off of them.  It's a lot to assimilate.

I would LOVE for NBA TV etal to show this video during halftime or whatever, so that viewers, especially younger viewers, get past the oohing and ahhhing over watching a 7' man dunk a ball through a hoop they can almost reach by just standing and reaching up for and actually learn the beauty and subtleties of THE GAME.

Learn these two offenses, and you can start screaming instructions to players on the other side of the TV screen like a coach would.  Don't learn them, and be condemned to just screaming...

I'm glad you appreciated them as much as I did.

And I foolishly thought this was going to be about Miami's offense - built on flopping.

Bob, I'm convinced that, the more options players have on their offensive plays, the explosive the offense can be. This is a relatively simple one, and it would therefore be an ideal play to feature at the beginning of the season when so many of the players could be newbies.
