    Don’t disagree. Can’t teach height, speed or jumping. If you took away carries and walking the game wouldn’t be as interesting for the fans. There are a bunch of guys in college and the NBA that can’t dribble, can’t make free throws or can’t shoot but they have a scholarship or make millions a year because they are athletic and can dunk easily.

    Adjusting for special teams play, yes players on the same line generally play the same amount of minutes. In other words, coaches don't tend to "juggle the lines" unless the team needs a shot in the arm or players need to learn a lesson.

    Had a coach who would blow the whistle and stop play during a scrimmage if someone let the ball hit the floor (dribbling) without a good reason. He always said, "where are you going?" Whoever did, if you didn't have a good answer, had to run laps while the rest of the players watched. Catch the ball first (you're right, "meet it if necessary"), LOOK, and then make a decision on what to do or where to go. Still contend that passing crisply and swinging the ball and picking and cutting and running sets is a hell of a lot more effective in the half court game as opposed to one on one break down basketball.....unless you just have freakish athletes.....a la a Duke or something similar. Butler doesn't currently have freakish athletes.

    I'm with you on the dribbling. I remember practicing with a ball that wouldn't bounce so you couldn't dribble. Watch KB. Invariably he dribbles as soon as he gets the ball. That takes away an option without having a reason for dribbling.
