Denver Nuggets attacking new NBA season with dribble-drive offense that was made popular by Vance Walberg. George Karl hired Vance Walberg as a Full Time NBA Assistant Coach this past offseason.
A former high school and college coach, Walberg is the innovator of what’s called the dribble-drive motion offense. It was revolutionary. Walberg would put four players on the perimeter and, as one player attacked the basket, the offensive post player would open space by moving to the weak side of the lane. Meanwhile, the other three perimeter players would rotate accordingly. If that particular dribble-drive play failed, the next ball handler would just dribble and drive again.
Once seen as wacky, the dribble-drive offense has helped turn John Calipari-coached teams into collegiate powerhouses. The Nuggets use dribble-drive concepts in about 50 percent of their offense, coach George Karl said.
“We create our penetration off pick-and-rolls more than he teaches,” Karl said Monday as the Nuggets prepared for the Phoenix Suns at the Pepsi Center, “but the principles hold true both ways. It’s just trying to get the ball free to where the defense has to help. And then teaching what happens after that. Everyone has always penetrated the ball, but we teach the reads. … What I liked about it was, the thing that always frustrated me about American players is they like to play with the ball. Now I allow you to play with the ball, if you attack the defense.
It’s constant motion and it’s an integral part of the dribble-drive offense.
1) The Nuggets are getting to the rim more than any team in the league.
The best shot in basketball is at the rim, and the Nuggets take 33.2 shots per game at the rim.
2) The Nuggets shoot few mid-range jumpers.
The most inefficient shot in half-court basketball is a contested long 2-pointer.
3) The Nuggets are the fastest paced team in the league.
The Nuggets are using 97.4 possessions per game. Playing faster means easy buckets in transition and open shots and lanes to the rim while defenses scramble to get set. Karl has drilled his players to catch and go–no killing grass with the dribble. In practice, players have to shoot, pass, or attack within 3 seconds of catching the ball or it’s a turnover. Learning to play fast like this keeps defenses on their heels. This was obviously a key tenet of the most efficient Suns teams of the “7 seconds or less” Mike D’Antoni years.
4) The Nuggets fill the perimeter with 3-point shooters.Spacing, spacing, spacing. While the Suns and Nuggets shoot a similar amount of threes, the Nuggets tend to have more 3-point shooting wings on the court at a time. When the Nuggets run a pick-and-roll, they are much more likely than the Suns to have decent 3-point shooters dotting the perimeter at the 2, 3, and 4 positions. The effect isn’t actually that they shoot more threes, but that they are able to get to the rim easier. Spacing with shooters opens up lanes into the paint.
