You maximize the strengths of your players. You dont make it to the NBA if you cant manage that. You let your quick point guard beat his man. You let your post men seal defenders off. You let your two-guard draw fouls and shoot free throws. You dont institute the princeton offense and throw the ball around the perimeter. You play from the post out and let your players take advantage of the fact that your dominant post player will be doubled every time he gets it under the free throw line. That's combination play, and not just one on one.

he has the best player in basketball and he wins. but lots of coaches can do that.
Like...maybe...Phil Jackson?
