: : : : : Shaq Ďs kid better be good. Playing Zone is terrible vs SCWhat a disgrace !
: : : : What are you complaining about, they beat USC toonight. Give it a rest. Take the small victories when you can.
: : : They gotta play zone because the pampered kids never played defense in club. Athletic players are just that, a basketball player is complete. I see a lot of athletic players, tall players, quick players, and yet my lump of clay still scores 20+ on them every game. Fools golds to most but only a rare few have a true eye for the game and true basketball player.
: : :Absolutely.
: There is nothing wrong with playing zone. You still have to stop the ball, you still have to rotate, you still have to box out. Are you telling me that all of the European and NBA teams play zone because they can't defend? You scheme the opponent based upon what their weaknesses are and how you can best exploit it with your group. UCLA won, so job accomplished.
: I have seasons where I play a lot of zone, and seasons where I play minimal, because I'm not beholden to any belief that one system works best for all situations and personnel.
To get self serving "g" back on topic, fact of the matter is UCLA should of never fired Ben Howland. Great coach, winner everywhere he goes. Look at Mississippi State now. Dan G. needs to go. Just winning friends, influencing people.
