    Default Weak side/strong side?

    Could someone (or hopefully multiple peeps) explain the concept of there being a strong side and a weak side of the court?

    Ball side a.k.a strong side is the side of the floor the ball is currently on.. and weak side is the opposite side away from the ball.

    Yea it's pretty much that. to elaborate a little bit more:

    Side that has the ball demands more attention from the defense, thereby creating a strong defensive side. To do so you need to have defenders sag off of the offensive players furthest from the ball to be able to provide help should the ball handler beat his defenders.

    From an offensive point of view, that would now be the weak side since the defenders are sagging off to provide help.

    So technically the weak/strong sides are determined by the defense and why if you move the ball properly you can structure an attack from the weak side. When you run a play and swing the ball to the weak side you will have a small window while the defense adjusts, and depending on the effectiveness of the play you will have a longer/shorter window to get a favorable shot.

    That's a killer explanation. Now I know why sometimes players will risk a dumb pass through the defense to the weak side.

    Thanks.
