THE ZONE The Philosophy of Championship Basketball There are three phases THE ZONE. Phase One teaches the fundamentals of basketball with the General Rules of the Game. Once a player knows the Basic Moves, the next chapter explains Feints, such as the Shot Fake and the Jab Step. The Advanced Moves finish out the phase to give the player a strong foundation for the game. Phase Two discusses the Laws of Basketball that govern movements for in-game situations. The Law of Rotation shows how circular footwork creates more space for the offense to attack the basket. The Law of Balanced Movement proves the natural disadvantage of a defender. The Law of the Backboard Geometry shows how to maximize the use of the backboard anywhere on the court. The Law of Recognition states that for every defense, there is an exact offensive attack to score the basketball. Phase Three examines the live-action techniques to maximize a player's offensive and defensive efforts. The phase begins with the General Psychology of Defense which explains why an offense can manipulate the defender. The next two chapters explain the proven offensive attacks, step by step, to expose the defender's weaknesses. Also included, are the minor adjustments to be made IF a defender is guarding the offense well. The last chapter in this phase explains the techniques used to overcome the defender disadvantage to play lockdown defense. All players achieve their greatness when they are in THE ZONE!
