There’s been a lot of discussion about offensive rebounding vs transition D here, and Beilein is one of the first and biggest practitioners of sending almost everybody back in college, so I thought people might be interested on a NBA version of the discussion:
Great read… some really interesting stuff and nice quotes from various people in basketball. Seeing that NBA teams aren’t going after offensive rebounding with NBA personnel really enforces why Michigan doesn’t really crash without really any plus offensive-rebounders.
Nice read. Too bad our opponents don’t retreat haha
I also like how Brad Stevens has Celtics get into passing lanes while transitioning to defense to slow down the fast break. Innovative thinking.
