Secondly, I'm not a basketball coach by any means, but what the hell was Detroit doing last night? Going into overtime, Shaq and Kobe both had five fouls, meaning that either of them was out of the game with one more. Since they seem to be the only Lakers capable of actually doing anything, don't you think it would have made sense to try to draw fouls and get them out? I would think that Detroit's players would be driving the lane each time. Why not? Two things can happen: either Kobe and Shaq have to play soft defense, leaving Detroit free for easy layups; or else they continue to play tough and take a chance on fouling out. Instead, Detroit's players stood around and took jumpshots. Unbelievable.
Come to think of it, OSU hiring Coach Dakich would probably make me a big fan of the Buckeye basketball team. That doesn't mean I want it to happen, though. I like him right where he is.
