In basketball it's like switched man defense.
You're playing zone without even knowing that you are in zone.
From there, he works backward.
After you're familiar with it all, you can play more effective zone.
You learn to stretch your zone in a natural way that is just the same concept; the implementation is just a reverse of the previous process.
It is not easy to describe, but I can see that once you're in it for a little while, it will become quite natural.
Much sooner than a guy who play man coverage all his life being trusted into a zone scheme that he's not familiar with.
It still takes a little time, but for a vet who had seen both, it shouldn't take long.
So, what 'cha thinkin' here 76? 1/2 a quarter, a full 1/2?
