How To Build A Defensive System With Jim Boylen

Below is a video of Jim Boylen teaching how to build a defensive system starting from the foundation. Coach Boylen was previously with the Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs, and is now the Associate Head Coach with the Chicago Bulls. I love the simplicity that he teaches with. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s easy. Enjoy.

“Whichever way you decide to push the ball is how you have to set up your defense, and it determines how you defend pick and rolls.”

“The sideline is the 6th defender, and the baseline is the 7th defender.”-This is a great visual way to teach your players how you want them to defend within your philosophy. 

Todays players learn in 3 ways:

  1. Auditory (By Listening)
  2. Kinesthetically (By Doing)
  3. Visually (By Seeing)
