3-Guard Lineup

[ed. note: from the diaries. Kudos to Sam Smith for being the first beat coverage that made the connection between small lineups and getting pounded in 4th quarters. Looks like it happened again Saturday, a game I happily missed. -Matt]

The Tribune has an article here about the pathetic state of the bulls.

One sentence that really got me was this:

With the Bulls then playing three guards -- a tactic former coach Scott Skiles frequently employed effectively down the stretch and for which he was applauded -- the Pacers grabbed three straight offensive rebounds with the Bulls trying to come from behind.

Whoever applauded Skiles for the 3-guard lineup?  I've hated it from day 1.  And basically for the same reason they name - lacking in rebounding.  Not to mention putting short people on much taller people (Kirk on Tracy McGrady still makes me shudder) and being totally outmatched playing defense.
