In praise of the inbounds passer

One of the most overlooked parts of basketball is the inbounds pass. As George Karl pointed out recently, an effective inbounds play/pass can make the difference in a game.

When Coach Karl was asked the other day about Vinny Del Negro, who played for Coach Karl when he coached the Bucks, he praised him for a unique skill:

"He was the best inbounds passer I have ever coached. He won some game for us in Milwaukee making some great plays from the sideline out of bounds."
