Please, Larry Brown, put Ben on Artest.
That will open up the lane even more for Pacers penetration.
With Croshere in the game, Ben can't play goalie. And that's Ben's claim to fame, playing goalie, intimidating the guards, getting rebounds. His post defense is average and I haven't really seen him try to guard a quicker player on the perimeter but I'd imagine it isn't pretty.
That's the beauty of Rick's adjustment: Brownie's first counter-adjustement would play right into our game plan, too.
Brownie's best move, believe it or not, would be to pull Ben, and put in Okur and match him up against Croshere. Would Ben respond as positively to such a move as Foster did?
Who knows if it will all work out but I really like the position we're in.
