We know what the Bulls have and we know what the Heat have. Sure we have heard that they are unguardable, but you really can't start with that as a game plan. There are not many defensive plays you can run off of the "lay down and die" set.
So that being said, how would you do it? What is your complete philosophy on approaching such a game.
For me, I would recognize our strengths at the 1 and the 5. I would play the 2, 3, and 4 straight up, man to man, with a fast, defensive lineup to start the game. The goal: take a few lumps but get them tired. I think defensively, none of our positions are giving up too much and some of our positions are taking (one of which, the 5, is a "clean up" specialist). Overall, I see the game close. And then once you go to the bench, you count on depth, speed, and youth to further tire. Only, I might take a more "bruising" approach with our bench players, so that a tired Chris Bosh is also getting roughed up. Sure, you have Lebron and you have Wade who are workhorses that take punishment well, but are they really going to be that energetic enough to cover their man and the 1 and 5? Speed, depth, athleticism, youth-take advantage.
I know this might belong in a fanshot, but I thought it might generate some discussion. But it was inspired by this story: http://www.nba.com/2010/news/features/david_aldridge/08/23/morning.tip.guest.casey/index.html?ls=iref:nbahpt1
