When Bandon Does Play the Point..

it would be interesting to see the Blazers go “BIG”.

Brandon may have to guard their PG, but in a lot of cases Brandon will dominate their PG,( when Blazers are on O.) so much, it will more than offset his opponent’s advantage on the other end.

Going “BIG” guarantees/insures the opponents’ PG has to guard Brandon.
(Maybe Brandon Posts him up, Maybe he backs him down with the dribble) Either way, Brandon ; Draws a double; Scores; Gets fouled; or both. He Kills their guy on the boards, all this while also physically “wearing him out” for 5-6 min.

By “BIG”, I’m thinking Martel, Frye, LA, and Greg or Joel. That’s a pretty big team.. But very versatile Athletes, on O and D
... Hi-Post offense; Post Brandon; Pick n Pop w/ Frye; Run Martel off some “mean Double Picks” and let the bigs go to the offensive glass, or finish Alley-Oops. (Take your pick)

Finally… You just Zone-up on D.
Protects Greg or Joel. (if its Joel, and someone does attempt to go to get to the rim, Joel gets to use one of his “Don’t Come In Here Fouls".
Lots of "Long Arms" in the Zone… Force tough, outside jumpers while Webster & Frye "Run-out" for Fast Breaks.

I think it could be effective at times… What do you Guys think?
