2016 Olympics Basketball Playbook

2016 Olympics Playbook
The 2016 Rio Olympics basketball tournament was a great tournament to watch, with many teams running great offensive and defensive schemes. Australia mens basketball really stood out of this Olympics as one of the best offensive teams by far in the tournament with great sets and an offense built on reads and playing great basketball. Serbia, Argentina and Spain all ran great stuff as well as Lithuania who all really impressed. The 2016 Rio Olympics Playbook is one of the most comprehensive playbooks you will find, with at least 10 sets from each team and over 400 sets total. With over 270 pages, you will find great ballscreen, backscreen and post up sets as well as baseline and sideline out of bounds sets to add to your playbook and improve your scoring chances.

Australia Ballscreen Motion
Australia ran a great ballscreen motion with multiple options and counters out of it that really kept the defense guessing and allowed the passing ability of Andrew Bogut and the shooting to flourish. Instead of the typical european ballscreen motion with both bigs starting high, Australia ran it with a big in the post first or a look out of normal transition offense and was able to get some initial high low opportunities as well. The point guard would come down the side of the floor and reverse the ball to the big at the top of the key, who then dribbled to the opposite wing. As the big dribbles the guard on the wing has 2 options: 1) cut through backdoor for a layup or continue to the opposite side and 2) screen down for the guard in the corner who comes off a dribble hand off from the big. The big in the post opposite then flashes to the high post and can receive the pass from the guard and reverses it again, then continuous motion from there. Here is a video of Australia’s ballscreen motion and counters:

Mike Budenholzer Atlanta Hawks Playbook

Mike Budenholzer Atlanta Hawks Playbook

The Atlanta Hawks have had one of the best offensive teams in the NBA over the last 3 seasons under head coach Mike Budenholzer. Starting off under the great Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs, Budenholzer took the Spurs great motion offense and designed it for his Atlanta Hawks teams. The hawks motion offense has multiple reads built into each segment and action out of it, so if teams take something away they have a counter for it. The continuous motion puts a lot of pressure on defensive teams and will force anyone to prepare to guard multiple actions every night.

Atlanta Hawks Motion Offense:

On top of the Hawks great motion offense, Mike Budenholzer is in my option the best After Time Out coach in the NBA. His After Time Out sets are unbelievable and extremely effective with 5-10 counters for each basic actions they have, especially with actions out of their motion offense. An example of this is the special that the Hawks ran in the 2015-16 NBA season, running this set typically at the beginning of the game. Starting off with both guards even near half court, the bigs at the elbow switch and the point guard passes to the 4 man at the elbow and then cuts off him to the opposite post. After the point guard clears the 5 man at the other elbow sets a backscreen for the opposite guard (Kyle Korver) to cut into the paint, then the 5 man opens up and receives the pass. With 5 at the elbow with the ball he enters the ball into the post for the point guard, that triggers Kyle Korver to set a backscreen for the guard in the corner for a layup.

Atlanta Hawks After Time Out Special:

This Atlanta Hawks playbook will be the most comprehensive NBA Playbook that I have ever created with over 172 pages and 230 sets from the last 3 years.
