I think I'm in love. I've been crying, pleading, and begging for a coach to recognize the abilities of this team, and utilize them to their fullest. 1. Sheed: Sheed is a horrible post player in the classical mode of play. He is almost useless as a back to the basket player that must make a move to score. However, he is one of the best players at going to the basket off of movement. LB seemed to hate to have plays to the basket off of movement, and wanted to force Sheed to play a back to the basket style that didn't work for him. They will be cleaning up the floor while opposing big men soil their pants trying to defend Sheed, Tay, Ben & Dice(not to mention the years that could be added to their careers). 2. Darko: Darko can play a back to the basket game, but at his young age and weight, that's something he should use sparingly. The nightmare of Sheed & Darko roaming the perimeter, with the ability to take most players at their position, would be frightening(if Darko delivers). I don't think you'll ever confuse Darko with Dirk(let's hope not on defense), but if he even approached what Kukoc was capable of, we'll take it. 3. Freeing up Arroyo for more pick & rolls, was something LB didn't seem to see the value in. When executed correctly, the PnR is one of the most effective plays in basketball. 4. Bigger rotations: Duhhhhh!!! Hello? Flip will use a 9-10 man rotation during the early part of the regular season. I say we could go even higher early on, and trust me, he will. You need to have some caution there, but you've also got to know what players can give you in which situation. That requires experimentation, but you just don't want to lose games trying to figure it out. The longer rotations will benefit the rookies, and the cream will rise to the top. Flip's system is prone to regular season success, mostly because he NEVER really shortened his lineups during the playoffs that much, and his teams got high on offensive ball. Once they hit the playoffs, matching the extra intensity eventually wore them out. The saving grace here is that this team knows what the playoffs are all about, and let's face it... this is Detroit. We don't play that homey! Flip just went to my penthouse, and I'm ready to get this party started.
