The next of the simple basketball plays is the pick and roll. Player A goes near and behind an opponent who is guarding Player B. Player A has a wide, erect stance and is not moving on the point of contact with the opponent defender. Player B dribbles quickly by the pick by almost brushing shoulders with Player A. The dribble should be toward the basket and to a place where Player B can get a makeable shot. After setting the pick, Player A \"rolls\" quickly toward the basket and while facing the basketball. Player A should make an eager hand target and be ready for a pass from Player B. The pick and roll often works because the defense tends to guard Player A or Player B, but not both.
Would it not be worthwhile to put together a true World Championship series between the NBA and Euroleague champions? The entertainment value, along with international interest in such a event would be tremendous, and the games themselves would serve to settle for once and for all which side of the Atlantic the best basketball is played on.
There is a consistent theme here the world has caught up. Long gone are the days when a group of U.S. professional players could just show up and easily pummel international opponents. That era passed after the first Dream Team, led by Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan, won the gold medal in the 1992 Olympics perhaps the greatest collection of talent on one team in any sport in history. Of late, the international teams, who feature a more pass-oriented, free-flowing version of the game, smell weakness and are ready and eager to heap more indignities on the heads of the American players.
