In my opinion, there is a basketball trend today that emphasizes style over substance. It can be seen at all levels of basketball, but is especially prevalent at the professional level. unfortunately, because of the vast media exposure of the NBA and to a lesser extent, the college level, there is a definite trickle down effect to all levels of basketball. It seems to be style plays that attract the most media attention. What do we see on ESPN Sport Center- the spectacular dunk shot or the great pass, an outstanding defensive play, and diving on the floor for a loose ball. I believe you know the answer to that one.
It seems to me that coaches are the only possible hope in reversing this trend that can affect the integrity of basketball as a team sport. Who else can affect change?
So , what can coaches do to develop an emphasis on substance over style?
