NBA Playoffs Talking Points

Justin Peters provides “a cheat sheet for those of you who can’t tell the difference between a Mikan drill and a three-man weave” to help fake your way through the NBA playoffs. A sample:

On the strength of strong seasons from Ben Gordon and Ben Wallace, a breakout year by forward Luol Deng, and generally strong team play, the Bulls enjoyed their most successful season since the Jordan era. Raise some eyebrows by arguing that the Bulls are a better team qua team now than they ever were in the Jordan/Pippen 1990s.

Heh. And probably true.

“Mikan drill and a three-man weave”

I’ve been watching the NBA for years. (Faltered big time with my frustrating Milwaukee bucks) I’ve never heard announcers talk about either of these terms. The latter I know from my days of high school basketball practices.

If you talk about the Mikan drill Charles Barkley will come out of the tv and smack you.
