I am a Rick Torbett Read & React coach.
If the defense takes away your drive and gets chest to chest, would you ever consider using a Bounce Off move to relocate and then either pass or attack the defender on their Closeout?

I don't want to speak for Coach Oliver. But my take is there are 100 different ways to skin a cat. Go with a scoring and skill development philosophy that works for you and what you believe in. Coach Torbett has a system that works for him. And Coach Oliver has a system that works too. If bouncing off works better for you and you can get the results you want with your playing attacking and scoring, go with that. If it's not working the way you want, you might consider a different approach.

Great drill, in assisting younger developing players, make quick offenses decisions.

Great thinking behind moves to the basket. Simplifies attacking the basket.
