It is important to get your best basketball players touches where they are most comfortable scoring the ball. If you have a big man that is a good scorer, this is a great basketball play to run for him. When deciding on the basketball plays that you are going to run for your team, it is important to make sure that you are considering your personnel. Always try to build your plays around your players.
