Blur Screen DDM Blueprint
Laying out the fundamental spacing, rules, create actions, and common problem-solving suggestions to implement a four-out blur screen-heavy DDM system.
One of the things that has always attracted me to the dribble drive offense is its simplicity. Like most small school rosters I often find myself presented with the challenge of a two-week preseason, mostly multi-sport athletes, and often missing the dominant post player. In many ways, I think this style of offense can help accommodate some of those factors. DDM offenses are going to rely on the strength of your perimeter players and their skill at creating off the bounce. It is an offense that relies on your team's ability to maximize spacing and create gaps in the defense. Once those gaps are created we will then exploit them with dribble attacks to the rim. Alongside those dribble attacks, I've always thought there needs to be a pass & cut layer to the dribble drive offense, and one of the offensive concepts that help to accomplish this is the blur screen. Building a DDM attack around that action will be the focal point of this post.
When it comes to choosing an offensive system we need to find something that that fits our personnel, has easy-to-understand concepts, and is something that we feel comfortable teaching. My main goal in creating this post is to provide coaches with a resource that helps create an offense that can work with those "problems" and can be used to implement this style of offense in their own programs. The dribble drive offense is not new, and there is an endless amount of material out there on how to implement this style of offense. What I am going to lay out are the concepts, spacing, and reads that I like and have adopted with my own teams.
