The Gifts of the Triangle

In N.B.A. Basketball by Brock Bourgase

I’ve been reading a lot of my Tex Winter books lately. The Triple Post Offense – also known as the ubiquitous “Triangle” – never stops giving. It is not an offense that can be run in every situation but it provides some good teaching points to break down freelance and early offense principles into easy to learn pieces. Most interestingly, if one were to employ elements of the Triple Post set, they could hide a lack of size in the post and create a wide variety of scoring chances with an undersized line-up.
