    Flip said they have a new name for the defense of Lebron but they weren't going to reveal it yet. So I was thinking about what they could possibly be calling it. I came up with one. Thought maybe some of you guys might come up with one yourself.

    Here's mine. As you know, the word pin is a sports term that is often used to communicate restraint or defeat, as in wrestling and or even in football. "The Lions are pinned inside their own 5 yard line". I hear that one quite often. :MusicBigGrin: Since Lebron, whether we like it or not, is sometimes referred to as the King, as in King James, I thought maybe they are calling it "The Kingpin"; because kingpin means the leader of a group.

    I don't know what they call it, but it seems to work, at least so far.

    Just thought of another one. You know how Lebron has to work so hard? Well he is probably sucking wind pretty good trying to play one on three. How about "Lebron Sucks".

    Congratulations Buckeye. With this post you are now up to a half a post a day. How is that possible? Isn't that like digging half a hole? How can you have half a post? Yuck Yuck Yuck. I started off slow around here but I think I am starting to catch on to this thread thing. Buckeyes are kind of slow at times. But anyways. Too bad for you guys I guess. You have to endure my corn ball humor.

    The Jordan Rules was a hoax and didn't really exist. I wonder if they are pulling the same crap here.

    The Jame Juggle
    The James Jib (triangle sail of a ship)
    The James Jolt

    Enough of this. Time to get to work.

    Nah, I've seen a few interviews with guys from that team....I think Laimbeer said it most recently. It really didn't exist, but everyone kept asking what their secret was to holding Jordon to around 18 ppg (with the 40+ exception from time to time) against us when he was clearly averaging 30+ against most other teams.

    Someone (Daly or player) came out in some interview with the "Jordan Rules" and everyone took it and ran with it. So our guys and Daly played along knowing it really didn't exist as an actual planned strategy. The best part is, the Bulls players to this day still refer to us using the "Jordan Rules" against them which is pure comedy and lets you know how much we really were in their heads.

    A lot of it had to do with the fact that while other teams were parting the lane like the Red Sea when Jordan drove....we were sending 3 guys to knock him on his arse. Which is perfect because you can clobber him with 3 guys, inflict 3x the punishment, and only one foul can be called.

    That way, if it doesn't discourage him from driving, he'll at least be all bruised and sore which would definitely affect is play over the length of a 7 game series.

    I dunno about that because Joe D who is pretty credible has detailed specifically what the Jordan Rules were numerous times.

    Something's rotten in Denmark.
