I received this great email the other day from Coach Mac – it doesn’t link to a post, so I’ll quote the whole email …
- They set great screens for their teammates.
- They cut hard regardless of if they’ll receive the basketball or not.
- Slightly pushing off on their opponent before sprinting to set the screen.
- Screen-the-screener actions.
- Faking with their body before exploding out to set the screen.
