Our zone offense in overtime was pretty putrid. I am fine with the design of the 3 out 2 in set with the post players working block to elbow.
The problem is that we only passed it around the perimeter and never looked inside. We never drove any gaps or attacked the short corner area to flatten o...

I definitely enjoyed the movie, and like some said it was funnier than I expected. I did build it up way too much in my head before seeing it though.
I agree with Uncle Stu's comments. The pacing and flow seemed off, and it was disjointed at times, (especially in the first hour or so.)
