The S.O.S. Pressure Defense System was constructed by long-time NBA defensive guru Bob Kloppenburg. In addition to coaching for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver Nuggets & Toronto Raptors, coach Kloppenburg was the Defensive Coordinator of the Seattle Supersonics during the '90s when their use of the S.O.S. Pressure Defense System helped propel them to multiple 60 win seasons. Additional resources include Bob Kloppenburg's The Encyclopedia of the SOS Defensive System, Advanced SOS Defensive System, SOS Pressure Defense, and George Karl's Defensive Basketball Drills.
Our system uses coach Kloppenburg's S.O.S. foundation and also fuses some elements of the Amoeba Defense popularized by Jerry Tarkanian's UNLV Runnin' Rebels of the early '90s. Ultimately, it is the primary goal of our defense, not just to stop the opponent from scoring, but to create the game tempo we want and to create offense out of our defense. As we say, we want steals, not stops.
