Thanks for the positive feedback everyone!
Hoopie- I agree, I have been to the former Yugoslavian states and watched their coaches, their school system had them working on fundamentals and shooting for an hour prior to school and in many cases another hour afterwards. Getting up a minimum of 500 three point shots daily is as regular as brushing their teeth which is why they shoot the ball so purely and so well. Guys like Petrovic upped the ante on those numbers.
Todd- my opinion, and it's only an opinion is that it is probably a bit of both. Many coaches are ex players who run what they did when they played in the 90’s and do not keep up with the latest trends worldwide. The AIS and state basketball federations tend to copy the US system which whilst is quite good, does inherit the same limitations as the US. The state federations dictate that they don’t like coaches overstructuring things then te ah what they call "receiver principles" as just that, a structure. The receiver principles are nothing more than a loose set of guidelines based on both Dribble Drive Motion )as used by NCAA coaches like Wahlberg and Calipari) and the European ball screen offense. By trying to be the best of both worlds they effectively throw out the baby with the bath water and confuse many coaches except those who are very experienced to understand what they are trying to do. They need to go with one or the other rather than fence sitting or our best talent will continue to develop better at the NCAA system of the European system. David Anderson is the best example, from AIS he didn’t learn much at all, he learned everything in Europe which made him the great players he was and still is.
