i agree with kmason. if you run a 1 man show, you know your team isnt that good anyway. with a couple stronger scorers, if one gets double teamed, it can hurt a little, it seems. all in all i feel like double teams dont work as one would expect in this game, instead of having a substantial effect on the scoring of one player and decreasing the defense played on the rest of the team (particularly the 4th or 5th man), it seems like double teams ever so slightly hurt the performance of the lead player, with maybe no effect elsewhere? im not that confident in that though, or id double team ever game, and i dont (well, didnt when i coached teams). all in all it seems like whatever the effects are, they are slight.
