    I agree with the strategy of trying to get Shaq in foul trouble as early as possible. It may not work, but I would like to see a relentless game plan that focuses on it. You would have to create as much contact with Shaq as possible. He's taken 2 charges this year. If he successfully takes 5 against you, then maybe the strategy isn't working.

    Send the guards at him and make sure that they hit body to body. Put in Dyess and Sheed together and go to whichever one Shaq is guarding. Have them pump fake and initiate contact.

    And think about the energy he'd have to expend to draw those charges...that makes him less effective on the O end. You have to wear him out early and not let him get comfortable. His lack of presence on the floor after early fouls gets in the heads of his teammates as well.

    At least Tay kneed him on that flop. Only not wicked enough.

    Ok so it is settled now. The next time we meet the Heat, the game plan is to go after Shaq in the first six minutes, get him in foul trouble and make him uneffective. (Wade or no Wade). If it's in the playoffs Pistons got to win the first and last game:sssh:

    The players don't listen to Flip anyway, so this classified info will need to get to Porter, so he can put a bug in the players ears..

    Someone who has courtside seats or knows somebody that does should tell them to explain this to him in S-L-O-W detail or better yet write it down. After all, he does listen to the fans . . . :)

    As long as we win the last one, we'll be alright.
