About This Play/Drill

The Miami Heat ran this against the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals to eliminate #21 Tim Duncan from hedging or trapping the ball screen.  By having #6 Lebron James play the 3 he could handle the ball and free the 1 man #30 Norris Cole up to set a down screen for the 5 man #1 Chris Bosh.  This is how #6 Lebron James got so many pull up jumpers as the Spurs post were slow getting up to the ball screen.
