Thread: How to stop Rip

    Default How to stop Rip

    If there is a thread on this already just delete this,

    There are some good Basketball minds here, so lets here your ideas. Watching sportscenter just now and watching Reggie go man2man D with Rip aint gonna work...

    I think they need to go Zone when Rip's in the game. Can the pacers play a good enough Zone to make it effective? I have always thought that the zone limits Reggie/Rips type of game dramatically, cause ya know you dont have one guy chasing them through 3 screens.

    Freddie or Ron...that's how you contain him.

    Use Scot Pollard in the game, and ask him to take a vicious hit on Rip. Let him get knocked out for a week.

    Pollard will be Indiana's hero.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Rip will slash right through a zone. He is quick and he can get quick shots off if need be. All you need is a good slasher and a good passer to defeat the zone. You just have to find the hole in the defense and eat it up.

    Really? I thought the coaches tried that already and it didn't work.

    but even with Freddie or Ron guarding him on Man2Man D you are still gonna have the same problems.

    3 screens and .4 seconds and rips got the ball up already.

    BUMP HIM, BUMP HIM and BUMP HIM AGAIN. USE YOUR FOULS!!

    The Lakers did this to Tony Parker and put him WAY OFF his game.

    AND BUMP HIM AGAIN! AND MAKE HIM WORK HIS *** OFF WHEN HE's defending. HE's skinny and we should take hit right at him.

    Well, that's when we have our big guys make him not wanna do that with a few friendly fouls. No one drives to the hoop this game is what I'd be preaching. Knock em on their *** if they try.

    Two bad things about going zone, in my opinion. One, a team that moves the ball well and penitrate will beat it. Detroit can do both of these very well. Not to mention they have 4 guys on the floor that can hit a jump shot consoistantly. THe second negative comes in reguards to rebounding. Detroit would get even more offensive boards if they get to roam free underneath. We can't get them blocked out half the time when we are matched up. Just my opinion.

    Worked a LOT better with Ron on him rather than Reggie.

    I know I haven't watched every minute of each game, but from what I saw, I thought Reggie did the best on him out of those three players.

    His ball kicking technique is remarkable. Look at his eyes...think about balls first, then shot.

    No - that would be a flailing elbow to the face.

    Maybe we could get Bruce Bowen and have him do that flying kick he did against a player. Or maybe just put his foot under jumpshooters feet..

    Wouldn't Ron getting in foul trouble be a problem if he covered Rip the entire game?

    Pull his shorts down.

    Then snap back his mask, breaking his nose again.

    It's sad that the only way to stop the guy is with a hard foul, and that might just make him mad and more focused... ala reggie.
    I still think zone is the best way to contain him and then hammer him hard when he tries to split the D.

    Game 5 about halfway through the 3rd Rip had more than half their points... that's sick. Somethings gotta give

    Maybe AJ could give him the flu?

    Ron, fulltime on Rip is an idea... but who guards Prince? He's capable of scoring twenty-plus against the Uncle, too.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I'm scared to play him right now, but it could work. Depends on how agressive he is. Passive Jon = Disaster. Agressive Jon - heck he'd probably get hurt but at this stage of the season, who cares?
