Rub Rip (Lawrence Frank Set Play)

While Lawrence Frank may not be currently employed as an NBA coach, his X's and O's acumen cannot be questioned. This is a basic rub set that he used to run when he was head coach of the New Jersey Nets. Coming down out of transition he had his point guard cross sides of the floor (already shown in the diagram) to give his point guard an attack right out of the gate.

Transition looks:
1) Pass ahead layup
2) Pass ahead hitting the rim runner
3) Pass ahead pick and roll
4) Rub series out of transition.

The very first diagram shows the basic rub set. Off of that look is a play called Rub Rip (the Rip call signifying a pick and roll).

 The 3 man then looks to set a for backscreen for the 4 man who looks for a layup. The ball is then passed up for 3 who can bomb if he is open.
 If he is not open for the shot, he comes off of a ballscreen from the 5 man. The 4 man replaces and the 2 man fills to the corner.


Remember that while it is always important to find the next best set, it is MORE important that the sets you run put your players in the best position to score, and what is MOST important is that your players are developing their skills to enhance their ability. Hopefully you enjoyed this post, if you did or did not let me know! If you have any request please message me on Twitter and I will happily post what you are looking for.

Have an excellent Easter and enjoy the start of the NBA playoffs!
