    Legit..

    This is what we would do in the rec league all day.. 4 guys play defense while the fattest **** on the team kicks back on the other side of the court..

    Most of the time he wouldn't even make it past half court..

    He'd occasionally lead the team in scoring because when we get rebounds we'd just throw it down the court and he'd get EZ buckets.

    Your baby can't do this

    I play every Friday and we have one guy who just loves to do this. Fat ****. We do enjoy the easy wins though.

    If this works in a rec situation I see no reason why it wouldn't work in the NBA...


    It's unlikely that Corbin will actually leave one guy standing under the basket while the other four play a makeshift zone defense—what will likely happen is that one wing player will be designated to sprint back on offense as soon as a shot goes up—but no matter the details, this is some crazy **** that will be fun to watch.

    you can't get away with that in the nba simply because all positions are highly skilled.

    This isn't a college team, which has 2 nba quality players on it along with 10 other non-nba players.
    This isn't a rec team, which has 0 nba quality players on it.
    This isn't the park, which has 0 nba quality players on it.

    I remember hearing about this in a podcast in the off-season. It was Vivek's idea to implement it. He is WAY too involved with that team.

    I would love to see this employed. I mean, even playing 4-5, you should be able to hold them to 55-57% shooting, and shoot %65-70% on the other end. But, the other team would make an adjustment, and have a guy dragging to stop the throw over. It would very quickly become a 4-4.5...

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I've always wondered why teams didn't at least TRY this.

    In theory, if you could make the opposition take a jumpshot, even a good jumpshooter is more likely to miss more often than they make... and if you get the rebound you'd have a great chance at an easy layup.

    How many times do we see a player fall at one end and not get back in time to play D, and yet the other team still doesn't score?

    Not saying it will work, but it could be interesting.
