Hi this is Sean Hobson. Right now we are talking about how to effectively run a pick and roll style of offense. What we want to do right there is we want to initiate the pick and roll by the point guard. This point guard is basically going to set up how he wants the pick and roll to work. What is going to happen is he is going to determine which of the post players we have come up in the high screen and roll depending on which side he dribbles to. So let's go ahead and put the ball into dribble. If he wants to screen and roll with the far side post player, with Ben right now, he is going to go ahead and dribble to this side. Now this is very important. As he dribbles to that side, Ben recognizes that he is setting it up for him. He is going to go ahead and come up to set the screen. Now, go ahead, right there. Now the important thing is after he sets it up and dribbles down, what he is going to do is, he is going to cross over and he is going to come back and that is where our initial screen is going to take place. But the most important thing is to set up the initial screen and roll. If he dribbles to this side we're going to get this post player to come up. If he dribbles down this side, we're going to get this post player to come up. It is all determined by what the post player does and which direction he dribbles to start this offense.
