THE ANKLE BREAKER
In one phase, the point guard (1) breaks down his defender on the dribble, driving the lane where he can either make a layup, dish to the weakside post man (5) or kick out a pass to an open teammate on the perimeter (2, 3 or 4).

THE REVERSE AND KICK
In another phase, the point guard (1) drives to the elbow and passes to the shooting guard (2), who can shoot a three-pointer or drive to the hoop, where he'll be able to lay it up, dish to the post man (5) or kick it out to the perimeter (3 or 4).

CYCLE AND REPEAT
Players can rotate through DDM by getting a pass at the free throw line extended (2), penetrating the lane and looking to attack the basket, dump a pass to the post (5) for a layup or pass out to the wing (3) for a three-pointer.
