The Recycling of Ideas
I find it amusing how so many "new" things in basketball are actually recycled ideas from years gone by. I was recently watching "Running to Extemes" by David Arseneault. In that DvD he talks about their drive and kick action. I thought it was interesting because Coach Arseneault's tape came out in the 1990s. It isn't like this new wave of "dribble drive motion" has never been seen before. I believe the DDM is also similar to the dribble weave ran by the Boston Celtics in the 1960s. So when someone claims something is "revolutionary" I usually take it with a grain of salt. So while this Dribble Drive Motion seems to be all the rage right now, it really is just a new take on an old idea.
