    Would he and the Bad Boys made sure to inflict some serious pain on this dude if he tried to drive the paint against them in the playoffs. I think so.

    Will this current Piston team attempt to if they have to face Wade and Company in the 2nd round?

    I suggested this soon after Wade injured his shoulder.

    Of course you go after the shoulder, but you do it in a way that`s not very obvious.

    I bet Nocioni will go after the shoulder, so will PJ Brown. The rest of the Bulls, I dont know.

    I tell you what, if someone gives him a hard foul in Miami, it could be a brawl!

    That's right. You gotta take the guy out, or at least limit his effectiveness.

    The best way to do it effectively is to run Hamilton off screens until that shoulder falls off from getting constantly bumped. If they switch him onto Prince then you relentlessly run Prince off screens (try taking that out of context). If they put him on Billups, you run Chancey off screens. By the end of game 2 he's done...or crying and waiving for his wheelchair.

    Low, that's countered by playing Eddie Jones on Hamilton and putting the ball in Wade's hands at the top of the key.

    And Wade vs. Billups is a :fear: matchup!

    McCosky thinks Skiles will take care of that for us.

    Personally, I don't think it's an issue. His jumpshot his much less of a weapon than he thinks it is. Billups has to make him a jumpshooter...give him the space. He is prone to Vince Carter-esque settling for jumpers. He only feels the need to push the issue when guys body up on him and he gets 100% of those calls and 900 FTs
