Comments
Coach LB: For in principle but would need more details on which strength/weakness it gives to a team using it.
Stephen Thompson: I think this would be a great addition to the simulation and super important for mirroring how real life games look. How would this be balanced though? Specifically ... what would a good pick and roll offense look like from a player perspective? What is the downside to running it? How can a defense counter it?
Adnan Bislimovic: I am not convinced any more by this idea. To be honest I do not like the fact of risk/reward...it should be a tool for the strength/weakness of a team/player or a tactical setting tool. But if we play this as a tactical setting tool we have to develop different other tactics. so you can switch the tactics by players you have in a team.
Bill Edwards: I think this would be a great addition to the game and would put more emphasis on coaching decisions. We have been begging for more options to the sim, well here is a great one
Coach Shers: I like it. Additional comments - what attributes would be better for a pick and roll offense? int? ps?

Admin Notes
Clearly there is some level of risk/reward. Here are some thoughts:
- If it works, the offense get an open shot, either from the handler or the screener
- If it doesn't work, at best (from the offense's standpoint) there is no advantage gained, and at worst there is a turnover, charge, or the handler is trapped.
.
In terms of defense options, this is less clear, especially as the primary defense is switching, something zone defenses should generally be more adept at.
.
I'd love to get other suggestions.
