with Fred Hoiberg, Chicago Bulls NBA Head Coach;

In this dynamic presentation featuring five live practices, Fred Hoiberg focuses on defensive concepts that help his team shut down their opponents offense.

He explains his transition defense philosophy, including who is sent to rebound offensively, who gets back on defense and how he builds a wall to take away key scoring areas on the floor. Coach Hoiberg illustrates several drills on the whiteboard and demonstrates the Line Transition drill on court.

Coach Hoiberg explains how he uses 3on3 drills to improve defensive skills to guard ball screens and dribble handoffs. Each drill focuses on important details like hand position, staying active and communication. Drills are diagramed and demonstrated on court.

The presentation also includes a segment on defending the post with undersized players. Coach Hoiberg shares key points on how to force post players into turnovers by using high, active hands and taking away baseline moves to force post moves to the middle of the floor.

Coach Hoibergs offers an indepth look at his unique NBAstyle of defending ball screens to keep them on one side of the floor using weak side help and rotation. Different calls are used to communicate how the defense plays the screens. Two drills for defending ball screens are shown.

Finally, everything is put together in Coach Hoibergs DownBackStop drill. In this fullcourt game simulation between two teams, players start with the ball on one end of the floor and play the offensive possession. They transition down to the other end on defense, come back on offense and stop. Between each DownBackStop drill players huddle with a coach to discuss the previous repetition and the emphasis of the next rep.

This video will help the undersized team prepare for opponents, learn to defend the ball, defend screens, create turnovers in the post and stop teams in transition.
