Breaking down the Spurs' system: A glimpse into the kinds of strategies we might expect from Coach Bud

This isn't exactly a proper FanPost, but since so many readers on this site have expressed interest in seeing what Coach Budenholzer's strategic system will look like this upcoming season, I thought I'd go ahead and share some of the material I've found which breaks down the system Bud and the Spurs have been using in recent years.

Obviously, Bud will be tweaking a few elements of this system now that he's here in Atlanta (seeing as how the Hawks and the Spurs are two entirely different teams), but it's clear that he intends to maintain most of the general strategies described here — so if nothing else, these links ought to provide a glimpse into his overall approach.

(Note: Some of these are a couple of years old, but they still apply.)

EDIT -- Just found a couple of extra additions which discuss how the Hawks will be able to use the Spurs' sets:

EDIT 2 -- One last addition: Here's a nice video compilation of the Spurs' various plays, plus a big video playlist
