"We wanted to show their two big men two defenders on every catch, sometimes three. Any time (Rakeem) Christmas or (Chris) McCullough got an offensive catch we wanted to swarm like bees on a honey bun, drop in like ninjas, kind of a Sherwood Forest thing.

If they miss then we have three, four bodies to negate their ability to get on the backboards."
