Detroit Pistons – A solution to beating the Miami Heat

As I watched the Detroit/Miami game last night, I thought of a way to beat the Miami Heat. I can’t believe how simple it would be. Can anyone remember the ‘Bad Boys’ era of the Detroit Pistons organization? Part of what gave us our reputation was the defense played by Bill Laimbeer and Rick Mahorn. When you drove the lane against them, you were going down… and going down HARD! Then, they would stand over you while you were down and remind you that if you drove the lane again, you were going down hard again. It was simple… and it was a foul. Now, I don’t normally advocate intentional fouls, but since the refs are calling the Pistons for breathing on Dwyane Wade and not calling Wade and Shaq for charging, you might as well make the fouls count.

I call for Laimbeer and Mahorn to pull the Pistons aside and show them how to do it ‘old school’. Let’s hear it… BAD BOYS! BAD BOYS! BAD BOYS!
