The Man Who Remade The NBA

Quick, tell me how do the Houston Rockets play offense?

  • High pick and roll.
  • Multiple shooters spread on the perimeter.
  • Emphasis on ball movement around the 3pt arc, rather than player movement.
  • Drives to the basket off the pick and roll leading to either a layup, or alley oop dunk from the rolling center.
  • Iron clad emphasis on layups/dunks, three point shots, free throws for all but the best mid-range players.
  • A simply staggering number of three point shots (compared to most of NBA history), because, math.
