Continuing the 5 Out vs 4 Out, 1 In conversation with play diagrams + get your free copy of the Celtics 41 Series mini playbook via FastTrade!
Sometimes (oftentimes) the simplest questions garner the most interesting responses.
A week ago we posed a question to coaches on Twitter: 5 Out or 4 Out, 1 In? More than 130K impressions later, the debate is still going on…
The best part of discussions like these–there are no right or wrong answers. It all comes down to a coach’s philosophy and how well they teach it to their players. No matter the offense or defense, there are always going to be tradeoffs. If there was a perfect way of playing out there, then we’d all be doing the same thing!
Clearly, personnel is a major factor to choosing which of these offensive alignments is best for your team. 5 Out coaches like the spacing and driving lanes it creates, while 4 Out, 1 In coaches prefer it due to the post presence and screening ability of the inside player. Join the conversation to share your insights!
We just featured 5 Out and 4 Out sets in our Plays of the Week email, of which some sets are posted below.
Finally, Coach Miller dropped a mini playbook he created of the 4 Out, 1 In series for us to share with FastDraw subscribers.
