Bruce Weber leaves nothing out of this video when it comes to offense. He demonstrates both offensive concepts and breakdown drills that you can use to include in your ball screen motion offense.
Coach Weber gives you eight great ideas for getting players in shape while working on your transition offense. Through transition build drills and 5v5 touch, players work on pushing the ball up the floor to hit their primary breaks. If kick ups are not open, Coach Weber looks to use their ball screen offense to score right away before the defense can get set.
Various situations are broken down with drills from 1-on-1 attacks from a quick pass up the court, to attacking with ball screens in 5-on-5 early offense. These practice drills will show you several unique twists on how to simulate advantage-disadvantage situations in transition. This suite of fast break drills will create the instincts your team needs for spreading the floor and playing fast.

Weber progresses from 4-on-4 scrimmages to 5-on-5 to help players understand how they can attack space in the zone with drives and cuts. This offense will help your posts get looks with overload situations and the constant movement of perimeter players will keep the defense scrambled throughout the entire possession. Your players will also learn how to surprise opponents with weak side flashes into the high post and filling out to gaps created by misdirection dribbles that distort the zone.
