    No. There must be movement off of the player posting up. All we do is spot up and space.

    They don't run Curls for him anymore. Rip is strictly an ISO and mid-range shooter now.

    In fact, I'm very surprised in the lack of option picks and screening that is occurring in this offense. After the first two games, it has gone back to being a very stagnant offense.

    that had to be one of the most frustrating Pistons games I can remember in quite a while. And that is saying something.

    The bulls were begging to lose that game...

    My pick for post of the day.


    I agree. Watch San Antonio and see how early in the first and third the starters begin to come out of the game. If you bring them out early, you have options. Flip by and large goes with them most of the first and that seriously limits what he can do later in the game. One or two guys need to come out before the eight minute mark.


    It's hard to understand how this happens. Think how many times Tay came off that little curl in the lane and walked right to the hoop against Miami. Yeah, fine - it won't work against everyone, and teams do figure stuff out from film, but at least try it once in a while. But Rip comes back and suddenly they don't push the ball, don't move on offense. I don't get it.

    The Bulls defense had a lot to do with our stagnicity.

    Same with the Cavs defense in the playoffs last year.

    I disagree. I think it's a combination of Tayshaun not being aggressive enough to be effective and the combination of Rip/Chauncey/Saunders being too stubborn/prideful/whatever to realize that the offense needs to be run through #22 and at times #36 and then and only then should #32 pick up what they lay down.

    And oh yea....


    ...stagnicity???????? :)

    5 fga by Prince is not a good stat.

    Including times when he got fouled, Sheed put up 30 shots.

    He only shot 50%, so it was basically a typical Kobe night for Sheed.
