As a Nets fan, I am happy to be reading about plans to use center Brook Lopez as the corner stone of the team, both offensively and defensively.

Within the article you get a glimpse into the kinds of options NBA teams have for their post players in secondary transition, off a great quote from Lopez discussing post play and quite possibly the easiest way for a big to get a bucket – running the floor and sealing your man deep.
Here’s the quote:
“They’re still trying to get me to run the floor and get deep seals, and I’ve been fighting it as much as I can,” Lopez said. “They’ve had me running the floor a lot in transition, to get deep seals. And if that’s not there, we have the second big – which could be me as well – trailing for center drags and then going into multiples from there.”
