Chalkboard for basketball

Have you ever watched a coach draw a play up on a whiteboard?

What happens next?  The players execute the play an they either succeed or fail.  They are completely aware of their roles and those of their teammates.  They know what they are expected to do and where they are expected to be.

They also know how far to deviate from the play and when to wing it.


Does your team know their roles and how they interact?  Can they execute the play?  How do they respond to success and failure?  Do they know how far to deviate from the play?  Do you give them room to throw the play out and go for goal?
