Transition is a major part of the game of basketball today. The team that can master the transition game has a decided advantage. The five benefits of transition offense are looking ahead, pushing the ball, attacking the basket, reading the defense and knowing your options. The outlet and bust out dribble are keys to starting the quick transition game. Bloom teaches his players to get from 3-point line to 3-point line in two dribbles. The three-man drill gets big men to run the floor as the guard throws the ball ahead. Other drills include drive and kick, jump stop drill, pick and roll, pick and pop and the circle drill. Defensive transition is the cornerstone to solid defense. Keys include seeing the ball, getting below the ball, stop point of attack and avoid the reach or jump. Bloom demonstrates several drills to set up defensively. Excellent teaching throughout!
