Encyclopedia of Motion Offense


Author: Chris Filios

“Wikipedia” vs “Encyclopedia” [Help me get this new playbook name right…]

If I present a digital product to you (like this playbook) can I still call it an “Encyclopedia”?


Am I showing my age whenever I do that?

After all, we know that “Wikipedia” is the online world’s version of the encyclopedia, so is the word “encyclopedia” itself passé?

140 pages long
Breakdown of ALL the sets of motion offense
With 28 pages dedicated to just drills

The Table of Contents goes like this:

Philosophy, Rules, and Organization
Reads After Passing
Screening Situations
Screening Actions
Concepts Versus Teams that Switch
Concepts – Playing off the Post
Secondary Actions
Half Court Sets From Motion Teams
Drills, Drills, Drills…

As the name implies, if it has ANYTHING to do with the Motion Offense, it’s in here!

Now, if you go to Wikipedia, you’ll find a discussion on the motion offense in basketball…history…references…variations…etc.

What you WON’T find is anything like this actual collection!

So…I think you can see the purpose of my original question…

For now, I’m sticking with “Encyclopedia of Motion Offense”  

The word still inspires that air of completeness, doesn’t it?

It might be audacious, but in this case, it DEFINITELY works.
