    In Episode 23 of The Help Side Basketball Coaching Strategy and Analytics Podcast we catch up on the NBA playoffs. We talk about the shocking loss of the Clippers to the Denver Nuggets, the Lakers, Celtics, and Heat advancing to the conference finals. I then go on another flopping rant. In the analytic section we talk about an interesting article I read on the negative overall impact of offensive rebounding in certain situations, as well as putting offensive rebounders in strategic positions. In the strategy session, we break down what the Nuggets did offensively against the Clippers, and what the Clippers could have done differently to slow down the Denver offense.

Finally, in the strategy session, we talk about boxing out. I talk about its importance, and some drills that I have found to be effective incorporating the skills of boxing out.

    Note*- I referenced a talk about boxing out I saw online years ago, and I said it was a speech by Coach K, I meant to say Coach Cal(apari). Sorry for the mistake.

Interesting listen

As a high school coach, this is very interesting listen. Absolutely love the breakdown of the analytics.

Not Good.

All over the place and not in a good way. I don’t know if I’m listening to a coaching podcast or a analysts podcast. Wouldn’t be mad either way but to go from a rundown of small college hoops to the nba with no real transition just has me confused. To enjoy the podcast if need to be a fan of either team. I’m shocked at how many good college basketball and coaching Podcasts that are in existence, but this is not one of them. Stick to Chris Oliver, Jim Huber, or Coach Collins if looking for coaching.

Biased

Very biased podcast. The guy thinks he knows everything but is wrong about 75% of the time and doesn’t really back up his takes. I came here expecting good and objective analysis but instead got biased, and entirely subjective “analysis”. Gave it one star as a result
