Remember how Phil Jackson used to whine about Hack-a-Shaq and how terrible it was? It'll be interesting to see if he'll use it. O'Brien thinks the Lakers will have to do it at least a little bit on Christmas Day.

O'Brien also points to James Posey. If Posey can handle Kobe Bryant reasonably well on his own, then the Heat will have a major edge.

And finally, one last good point: Lamar Odom sees Pat Riley as the man who saved his career. No doubt he'll want to play well in front of his ex-coach.
