eBook #1, Mike Budenholzer Atlanta Hawks Playbook
Coach Gibson Pyper
The Atlanta Hawks have had one of the best offensive teams in the NBA over the last 3 seasons under head coach Mike Budenholzer. Starting off under the great Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs, Budenholzer took the Spurs great motion offense and designed it for his Atlanta Hawks teams.
The hawks motion offense has multiple reads built into each segment and action out of it, so if teams take something away they have a counter for it. The continuous motion puts a lot of pressure on defensive teams and will force anyone to prepare to guard multiple actions every night.
On top of the Hawks great motion offense, his After Time Out sets are unbelievable and extremely effective with 5-10 counters for each basic actions they have, especially with actions out of their motion offense.
An example of this is the special that the Hawks ran in the 2015-16 NBA season, running this set typically at the beginning of the game. Starting off with both guards even near half court, the bigs at the elbow switch and the point guard passes to the 4 man at the elbow and then cuts off him to the opposite post. After the point guard clears the 5 man at the other elbow sets a backscreen for the opposite guard (Kyle Korver) to cut into the paint, then the 5 man opens up and receives the pass. With 5 at the elbow with the ball he enters the ball into the post for the point guard, that triggers Kyle Korver to set a backscreen for the guard in the corner for a layup.
This Atlanta Hawks playbook has over 172 pages and 230 sets from the last 3 years. It also includes a full breakdown of his motion offense and over 123 diagrams of Budenholzers After Time Out Specials.
