Dampier wants Tony Parker on his Back?

Don't get confused reading that headline, it's kind of true.

"Every time he drives the lane, we have to put him on his back," Dampier said. "The first foul has to tell him he's in for a long night.

"My first foul Thursday night is going to put him on his back. I guarantee it."

That's what I like to hear from a player. You have to foul guys hard and not allow them to make any easy shots. That is what the playoffs are all about.

On the other hand, I wouldn't mess with Tony Parker. He can light you up for tons of points, messing with him may not be so smart. But I like his poise and his attitude towards hard, playoff fouls.
