A basketball motion offense is designed to be the same movement over and over again. This will hopefully cause the defense to eventually breakdown and make a mistake, which will open up a shot for the offense. Well, this may not work very well at the NBA level because of the shorter shot clock, it is great for the high school and college level. Your looks on this basketball play are first on the block for the post up/layup or the shooter coming off the down screen.
