All coaches have a group of favorite practice drills, and NBA great Gregg Popovich is no exception. He dedicates this presentation to drills that have led to NBA championships. He begins with a simple, yet fundamental 3-on-0 pass and cut drill, which is a staple for the Spurs and is run throughout the entire season. Full court 3-on-3 and 4-on 4 weave drills expose and develop passing, thinking and decision-making. An excellent drill to establish defense is the 4-on-4-on-4 drill. Without the pick away and post up options available, players must pass, cut and maintain good spacing while looking to score. Conditioning and communication are two key elements of this competitive drill. Later in the drill, the pick & roll is added to the offense to create difficulty for the defense. The down and back 5-on-5 drill incorporates all of the pieces of the game. To teach several defensive principles, the full-court one-on-one drill is used often. Technique, desire, and passion are required to be successful in this intense drill. Disc II includes a favorite shooting drill where points are given for makes and points are lost for misses. The rocker and jab step can be added to this drill. Popovich is committed to fundamentally sound offensive play. The 5-on-0 motion drill is run full court to improve offensive patterns. He introduces the gaggle, which is a two-man game on one side of the floor. Popovich closes by teaching the finer points of his motion offense. He does an excellent job of stopping play to explain and teach players his offense. Cornerstones of this offense are the 3-on-3 drill, the gaggle play and the 2-on-2 elbow look and are broken down often.

Great drills for basketball IQ. Can definitely see why the Spurs always seem to consistently among the best teams in the NBA
Excellent video! Easy to follow and can implement drills immediately. Stresses fundamentals and competition. Talks about intangibles of players and how those are discovered through use of his drills. Well worth $40!
Buy it! Great video! The drills were easy to follow and explain and they've quickly become favorites of my varsity boy's team. If you want to improve your defense, your team communication and bring intensity to your practices, then get this video.
If you are buying this for the motion offense, then I would think twice. I thought the value was in the defensive drills, the team transition drills, and the competitive drills where points were only awarded for defensive stops.
If you want to learn the Spurs Motion offense, there are other sources I thought were better.
I absolutely loved everything about this video. I love the competitive 4-4-4 defensive drill. The early offense into motion is excellent!!
Very good DVD. The motion offense is awesome.
Lots of quality pieces and emphasis. Drills are very good and the motion pieces interesting and well illustrated.
This is a pretty cool video. While the drills are pretty basic, some of the ideas on how to incorporate them by Pop are very interesting and work to challenge the players physically and especially mentally. I particularly enjoyed the overall tempo that he had the players work at, even in the clinic setting! The 4 and 5 out drills are probably my favorites, both fit in great with a sideline or middle break transition team. Pops motion offense is especially impressive, the basics of it can be installed at youth levels but there is certainly more then enough depth for a varsity team to use it as well (probably too much for a varsity team!). Fantastic DVD.
Great video for anyone wanting an inside look at what makes the spurs such a great team.
I gave it a "5 stars". Popovich is a terrific teacher and this tape is full of useful and interesting ideas.The DVD is divided in two parts:- team drills- motion offenseDrills are competitive and emphasize defense first.Motion offense is built from transition and goes on with different options.
