If you like Bobby Knight (I know, some of you do, some of you don't), then you'll be happy to know that he will be appearing on CBS in March doing 1-hour specials breaking down the teams during March Madness, along with Billy Packer.

In the meantime, he did a short breakdown segment on ESPN of why he thinks Blake Griffin of Oklahoma is the best sophomore in college ball right now. I like the Sooners a lot this year, I really like Head Coach Jeff Capel's style. Anyways, back to Bobby Knight,

I liked the part about how Knight described the pump fake as his favorite move. If you read this blog, you know that I'm a big fan of the pump fake as well. I really like 1v1 moves that are talent equalizers. Moves like the pump fake, jab step, crab dribble, much more useful for the average player than fancy moves like a spin move, or a no look pass. Also, liked the part about how Knight talks about making the right decision offensively.

If you're thinking of running Bobby Knight's motion offense, then take a look at Dan Dakich's DVD on 5-man Motion Offense. Dakich played and spent several years under Bobby Knight in his many years at Indiana University. Talk early offense at the X's and O's Basketball Forum with other great coaches from around the world.
