Look I am excited that we are addressing defense....but how big a difference will it make when our coaches' offense is predicated on quick shots and running after made shots by other teams?
Plus...its not like his Hawk teams were exactly a lockdown gritty defensive team, his final season with the Hawks they gave up 97 per game on 46% shooting, which is not as bad as what we give up but is still pretty bad!
We suck on defense due to our poor individual efforts on D, Can he get Stat to crash the boards like a PF? Can he get Melo to go from showing flashes to actually committing to D?
I like that our starting PG and he won a championship together and that he has a player like Shumpert to work with as well, TD and Feilds are pretty decent defenders as well.....but the at the rate we put up shots and the lack of defensive awarness our team shows overall, then I'm not sure it will make a difference unless we can bring in some better defensive players and Mike D changes his approach to his offense.
Just my thoughts, what are yall thinking?
