Even better, think of Jack Lambert or Dick Butkus. That's the attitude Coach Carlisle is looking for.
According to Jerry Stackhouse, if a team makes a commitment to toughness, "it's not that hard."
"We had it when we were in Detroit (when Carlisle was the Pistons coach). We didn't like the other team. We made a conscious effort not to see other teams in shootarounds."
Added Coach Carlisle:
"How do you get guys to be nasty? Well, I think hating the opponent is a start. You've got to develop that as we go along."
