With a reputation for requiring dynamic, play-making perimeter players, the Dribble Drive Offense has become the go-to offensive structure for teams that possess athletic perimeter players. In this DVD, Greg Kampe shares a new wrinkle to the offense that lessens the importance of having dynamic play-makers on the perimeter.
While most teams try to hide their post players in this offense, Kampe teaches how easily a dribble drive team can create simple scoring opportunities for his post players. Coach Kampe provides a great breakdown of the guard responsibilities in his offense. Using simple, one syllable cues, Kampe walks the players through the many fluid options that are available.
By initiating the offense with an unorthodox strategy - picking up the ball at the elbow - coach shows how to execute the first simple "loop" play. This leads to many other options including the "pitch", "kick" and "skip." With his "through" cue, an immediate driving lane is opened at the top and multiple options to pass and score appear. Kampe also includes backdoor options and ball screen plays to create different looks within the offense.
By naming offensive movements, Kampe can then string these movements together to create countless numbers of offensive sets that yield unpredictability within his free-flowing motion scheme. All motions are demonstrated via 5 on 0 dummy action and then as live, 5-on-5 competition.
As the team learns the guard action, Coach Kampe introduces a variety of post options that highlight this great video. By using some "flex" action, Kampe shows how the post can get a deep post up. If your team has a great shooting big, he demonstrates an easy way to create a high percentage elbow shot from the offense.
Through multiple duck-in options the post can take advantage of an aggressive help defense team and can potentially become the most dangerous scorer on the floor. Even on misses from the guards, the offense creates tremendous weak side rebounding and scoring opportunities for the post player.
The video ends with Kampe demonstrating the "Loop-Through-Fist" combination against a 2-3 zone as a means to disorient a defense and create an open scoring opportunity for a sharp-shooter.
The dribble drive offense should no longer be considered a playground offense. In 2010 and 2011, Kampe's teams finished in the top 10 nationally in scoring. With its multiple options for the guards and its dangerous scoring opportunities for the bigs - as shown in this video - opposing coaches will soon discover that the dribble drive offense has evolved.
