“The players are unleashed when they play this way, because every player has the green light to take his man on every play”. — Memphis Head Basketball Coach John Calipari
Simple yet visual, kinetic description. Ya heard me?The article mentions that Calipari is a born promoter. When explaining how he came to name Vance Walberg’s offense, you see why.
Coach Vance Walberg initially called his offense the Attack-Attack-Skip-Attack-Attack (AASAA) Offense. Well, it understandably didn’t come across very well. The story goes on to explain,
“A born promoter, Calipari also came up with the name Dribble-Drive Motion for the offense, ‘It’s just easier to understand,’ he says. ‘AASAA? Come on, what are you talking about?’ Owing to the offense’s continuous patterns, reads and backdoor cuts, he also branded it ‘Princeton on steroids.’ “
