I don''t like it. If players can read the defense, they will still be able to catch and shoot when open and won''t mindlessly just get into the triple threat position. Catch and shoot if open. Catch and penetrate if being pressured. Catch and pass if teammate is cutting. All of those situations happen instantaneously when players can read the defense. Catch and get into triple threat position (to read the defense) you don''t have an immediate advantage.

Power pocket - not triple threat. You - are always the first option.

That quote from 2:08-2:38 is perfect. Thanks for sharing, going to share this with the team.

Agreed. Triple threat is essential for early fundamental development. Beginning at Jr High level (6th-8th)it's time to get our players thinking like this!
