David Blatt Maccabi Tel Aviv Playbook

Written by Coach Peterman

I have coached at the NCAA Division 2 (Southwestern Oklahoma State University), NAIA (USAO), and JUCO Levels (Blinn College and Carl Albert State College) as well as high school. I just felt that fellow coaches especially young coaches need to constantly work on their “game”. Just like the basketball players that we coach. We as coaches need to improve ourselves. That is my story and why I do this blog.

David Blatt Maccabi Tel Aviv and Russian National Team Playbook

In the “David Blatt Maccabi Tel Aviv / Russian National Team Playbook” you will find everything that coach Blatt has implemented before been hired by the Cavaliers. Here are four things that you should know about David Blatt as he heads to coach the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers:

1. David Blatt is a winner where he coaches. The Euroleague Icon has won every possible title that one can win as a player and coach in Israel, he lead Russia to an European Championship in 2007 and coached the Russian Team to a Bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic games. He was the Russia Super League coach of the year in 2005, while he was coaching Russian club Dynamo St. Petersburg. During his tenure as head coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv, the yellow-and-blue recorded an impressive 222 wins and 55 losses.


2. David Blatt is known for playing as many players as possible during games. He likes to rotate his bench and divide the minutes among his star players. Gregg Popovich has used this method to win the 2014 NBA Championship. Coach David Blatt played 10 players on his Maccabi Tel Aviv Euroleague championship squad received significant playing time at some point in the season. With the Cavs’ current roster made up of mostly young, emerging talent, plenty of players will have an opportunity to prove their worth under Coach Blatt.

4. What makes Blatt one of the best coaches in the game is that he knows exactly what each player on his roster needs to do in order for the team to win. Maccabi Tel Aviv’s unexpected Euroleague Championship Title is a big example of Coach David Blatt adapting his style of basketball to whichever team he is coaching. His former players have said that he made them not only better basketball players, but also smarter players.

5. He has NBA Players that are fans of him. Former Cavs sharpshooter Anthony Parker said Blatt was the perfect coach for Cleveland. 2004 NBA all-star Andrei Kirilenko once told the Russian media that Blatt “gives everybody a chance to feel that he is very important and the result of the team depends on each player.” Many NBA GM’s think that David Blatt reminds them of a young Gregg Popovich. That might even be enough to catch the attention of former Cavs small forward Lebron James, who happens to be known for being a student of the international game.

Blatt is widely viewed as an offensive genius who just led Maccabi Tel Aviv to a come-from-behind victory over CSKA Moscow in the Euroleague semifinals and an upset victory over Real Madrid for the championship. Maccabi Tel Aviv also won the Israeli and Israeli league titles this year.
