Apparently, the Dribble-Drive Motion offense is all  FEB 15 2008

Apparently, the Dribble-Drive Motion offense is all the rage in the high school and college basketball. The DDM is:

a high-scoring scheme featuring four perimeter players and a host of innovations. Unlike Knight's classic motion offense (which is based on screens) or Pete Carril's Princeton-style offense (which is based on cuts), Walberg's attack was founded on dribble penetration. To Calipari, at least, it embodied two wholly unconventional notions. One, there were no screens, the better to create spacing for drives. Two, the post man ran to the weak side of the lane (instead of the ball side), leaving the ball handler an open driving path to the basket.

The Boston Celtics use a variant of DDM as well.
