Flex Basketball Play

The flex man to man offense may be the most widely used offense in basketball. The popularity of flex is largely due to it's ease of running and it's effectiveness. To teach flex to your players you need to understand the basic rules of this offense.

Here are some basic rules you can convey to your players. Rule #1 if you set a pick you will next get a pick. #2 when you get a pick you will next set a pick or catch a pass. #3 if you make a pass you set a pick #4 if you catch a pass you shoot or make a pass.

Those are the basic rules which can help your players learn this offense. There are also some good rules which apply to all man to man offenses you should teach your players, like wait on your pick to arrive, set up your picks with v cuts, fakes, etc.
