Lawrence Frank reveals Austin Daye’s secret defensive weapon: pulling shorts


Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

"Now that he no longer coaches Austin Daye , Frank was willing to unveil one of Daye’s tricks of the trade while defending the post before the Pistons took on the Grizzlies at the Palace.“Defensively, he has one unique trick he likes to use,” Frank said laughing. “He loves to pull the chair and pull your shorts also. I am giving away his trade secrets.”"

That would explain why Austin Daye – 6-foot-11 and 200 pounds soaking wet – grades out as a good post-up defender by Synergy.
