Watch: BBall Breakdown breaks down Thunder coach Billy Donovan's Florida gators offense

New, comments

Watch Coach Nick break down the Billy Donovan offense, as well as interview Donovan's former PG, Teddy Dupay.

Coach Nick is the first of what we expect will be many NBA experts who attempt to brforecast what Billy Donovan's Florida Gators offense might look like when he begins his coaching tenure in Oklahoma City.

There will be a great emphasis on ball screening, which is the bread and butter of any NBA offense, but Donovan also incorporates a number of other NBA staples, including a basic HORNS set, as well as various derivations that utilize motion and irregular starting points. It is not difficult to see how if, Donovan can get Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, and company to commit to this kind of motion and passing, their offense can hit a level they've never experienced.

Coach Nick finishes his breakdown with a great interview with Teddy Dupay, who was a point guard under Donovan and offers first person insight as to what it might look like for Donovan's future relationship with Westbrook.
