Couldn't agree more, Mark. It's the players that make the plays work.

Many of the most effective plays are very simple.

What a profoundly stupid looking play. I'm definately going to try it this year and if it works will be completely baffled. Another play I was baffled at how easy it was set up and how consistently it worked we called blue bomber. 1-4 set with point high, one post player on each FT corner and 2 & 3 on opposite wings extended. 4 & 5 set a high pick for 1 and basically 1 chose which way to drive and ran a pick and roll. If wing defenders cheated, then kick out pass for open shot was always there. Get 4-5 drives and 2-3 kick outs each game for easy shots. Of course, if my team shot more than 11% last year, that would REALLY be a golden play!
