Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day: "The thing with the triangle is that your top dog has to be a believer in it and be a master of it. When MJ fully accepted the triangle everyone fell in line and everyone had to abide by it. Only MJ and Pip had the license to deviate once in a while. The Lakers on the other hand have a bunch of players who like to go solo and ignore the system. It's a lack of discipline more than anything else." -- Beth
