Developing Players for a Free-Flowing Offensive System
Marshall University head coach Dan D’Antoni is building a winner and is doing so with a commitment to developing players. He led Marshall to its first NCAA tournament bid since 1987 in 2018 and attributes that to his player development. In this video, Coach D’Antoni dives deep into his philosophy of player development.
Player Development Philosophies
For D’Antoni, who is the brother of Houston Rockets coach Mike, player development begins with recruiting the right kids. He likes to recruit high-character kids and then develop them by setting a standard of excellence and by holding them accountable. What D’Antoni believes is important in the development of his players are the following:
- Being a positive coach
- Refusing to pigeonhole players into predetermined roles
- Teaching beyond the fundamentals
- A dedication to strength training and conditioning
After discussing his philosophy of player development, D’Antoni then demonstrates a number of drills that can help players expand their talents. It all begins with a warmup where players are challenged to get out of their comfort zone with a variety of difficult finishes at the rim.
The trademark D’Antoni offense is based upon the idea of positionless basketball and the pick and roll. Coach D’Antoni breaks down how to teach the pick and roll starting with a two-man demonstration and then progressing to include movement by other players off the ball.
Coach D’Antoni continues the pick and roll discussion adding how to look for attack angles, how to execute proper roll technique, and how to continue the offense after the initial pick and roll. D’Antoni reviews the pick and roll in a half-court set and when finished goes into how to incorporate the pick and roll into the transition game.
This developing players video takes a holistic approach to improving player performance. It starts with high-character players that give great effort in improving their range of skills. For coaches looking to add some new wrinkles to the development of their players, Coach D’Antoni’s presentation will challenge you. Rent this developing players DVD today.
