Default Re: Does Serge Ibaka have any post moves at all?

I'm not saying having a post game is bad, it just isn't as effective or efficient as it used to be, and relies on the post player to also be an effective passer from the double.

And teams can, and will, double from everywhere on the court. They don't have to wait for post player to get the ball, so teams are able to double from anywhere on the court, and still recover. You hear it referred to these days as defensive players being "on a string". It's essentially a matchup zone that allows teams to double anywhere on the court and still cover shooters. The Heat are the best in the league at it, and it allows them to play guys like Battier at the 4 spot, and Bosh at the 5 spot.
