Update: Congratulations to Joshua Priemski, winner of the free mySynergySports subscription! Thank you to everyone who sent in suggestions.
I usually try to keep this blog focused on the triangle (unless there is an AmMo Moment) but today I have a unique opportunity for an exciting giveaway. Well, exciting if you are a basketball geek.
If you follow me on twitter, you may have come across some of the live game notes that I take:
These notes are a simplified triangle offense influenced version of the logging work that I do for Synergy Sports. If you're not familiar with the concept, Synergy Sports is a company that edits, logs, and indexes every play of every basketball game in real time. Using Synergy, teams can watch a whole game, a single play, or any play type category that they choose (as specific as, "I want to see every Kobe Bryant make when he's isolated on the left side of the floor, drives right, and pulls up for a mid-range jumper when defended by Shane Battier in 2010"). Synergy has been developing a website to be used by the general public at http://www.mysynergysports.com/ that gives fans access to some of the same video data that scouts, coaches, and GM's get to see.
So, getting past the infomercial part of the post and onto what this means for you! I've been given a free subscription to mySynergySports by Synergy Sports and I'm giving this subscription away.
How do you enter? Simple. Make a comment on this post, write on the Triangle Offense Blog's Facebook wall, tweet me on twitter, or email me at TheTriangleOffenseBlog@gmail.com with suggestions and comments for the site. Is there a particular triangle action you want broken down? Is there an era of the triangle you want more breakdowns of? Are you a coach with triangle notes that you'd like to share with others? Do I need to find a thesaurus and stop using the word instead? Any and all comments are welcome.
