Hi, this is Sean Hobson and right now we’re
talking about the motion offense. The particular motion that you see right now is called the
“one in, four out” motion. Now, the rules to this motion are a lot simpler than other
motions. Some motions have rules where if you pass to the wing, you always screen away,
or if the ball comes down to the post you’re going to screen down and there are different
types of rules. In this one, the rules are very simple: we want to try to get the ball
into the post. Now, the way that we’re going to move the ball around the perimeter is this,
the rule is: you never, ever follow the ball. We never want to see this guy make a pass
to either wing and we never want him to follow where the ball is. The reason for that is
because where he goes, his defender goes. So if his defender is following down here,
now we’ve got two defenders on the ball. So we always want to have a pass and screen away
situation. You also notice here, give the ball back to our point guard. This guy, the
way he’s going to get open in the motion is he’s going to V-cut because he has no body
over here on his side, but when he’s coming up the court, if this guy can’t open, it’s
very easy because there’s two players over here. So what this guy is going to do is,
he’s going to set a screen down for this post player and allow him to pop up and get him
open on the motion. So the key is, if you’re not open, find somebody to screen and if you’re
on the side, you’re going to V-cut. And then our post’s responsibility is to get the ball,
he’s going to follow the ball. The main rule is to get this guy the ball. So, if the ball
is over there, we want our post player to either flash up high post or flash up to the
elbow and try to work. As the ball moves down then, we’re going to move with the ball. The
main rules are: don’t follow the ball, set screens to get people open and get the ball
into the post. And that’s how you run the four out, one in motion.

  1. This motion play would only work if the D were in playing zone. If they were playing 'Man-on-Man' the aim would be to screen AWAY from the person you just passed the ball to. By screening away, you take your D away aswell and leave the guy with the ball with the option of driving in 1on1. By screening towards your pass all you do is allow the D to double up on your man or you give them an easy switch, meaning the guy with the ball is always gonna be marked. So pretty useless in my opinion.

  2. This guy drives me nuts. TALK TALK.. so many other videos just like this. YEP.. time to make my own and share. ACTION not talking.
