yea. its interesting though.
i think most people don't understand that you stop pg's with your bigs. its just not realistic to stop penetration with your perimeter players. really only cp3 and rondo can do this. just look at the lakers in the finals. yes, kobe played solid defense on rondo, but the main crux of the problem for rondo was that gasol/odom/bynum were waiting for him in the paint.
so this allowed the lakers to make the proper rotations defensively. the heat don't have this luxury. they are forced to over help which leads to open shots and offensive boards.
and spo is clearly in favor of making teams make shots....which i tend to disagree with anyway. so the pack it in style gets even more destroyed with penetration because people are scrambling around so much that they forget to rebound.
haslem will help a lot next year...or this year...whenever he comes back. but they have to get a decent center.
put haywood on this team next to bosh for 30 minutes a game and i honestly think they easily win the title this year.
