Mike on the proper defensive stance: "What I'm always taught, I was always taught, is to try to be shoulder width apart. I like to put my right foot forward so that I can either direct the defensive player uh offensive player where he wants to go. And I can react a little bit better if I'm not too wide, if I'm just shoulder width apart, I think I can react a little bit easier. If I'm on the ball [sic] of my feet, then I'm active, I can move a lot quicker. If I'm on the heels of my foot [sic], then that means I have to get to the ball [sic] of my feet and then react to the offensive player. Sounds complicated, which is probably why most people [chuckle] don't want to play defense."

Basketbawful recap: Put your right foot forward, keep your feet shoulder width apart, and stay on the balls of your feet. Is that too compicated for people to follow? Only if Michael Jordan's teaching it.

Is it wrong that this whole thing reminds me of Larry Craig's "wide stance" excuse?

I think you should keep track of marion's FG% LOL it should go down to the mid 40s from last game forward

Finally watched the video (proxied at work)...

Thoughts? Mikes dirty hokey pokey. Where he talks about what to do with his left hand, it reminds me of the part in Old School when Andy Dick is reminding the chicks not to forget about the balls when giving fellatio.

does his "trying" to teach defense video explain why Jeff sucks at Illinois? geez, i hope he never coaches a good team

Does he have a turd in his mouth? Why is he talking like that?

Seriously, think how good he COULD have been, had someone sat him down and told him how easy defense strategy is...I can see him going through this train of thought every trip down the floor.

Its like 10% strategy, and 90% heart MJ.

how can you be flicking at the ball and mirroring the ball at the same time. there's only one ball!
