Honestly from what I saw Marc Gasol wouldn't change much either tbh. This has gone past a one player thing. Everyone knows Melo isn't the savior because of our shat D. This is a coaching style problem. Were an offensive team. POINT.BLANK.PERIOD. Why is it after every game someones clamoring for D yet we all know thats not what this team was built on. Were an offensive first team. The players we have were brought in for D'ant so of course they aren't going to be lockdown defenders. We get blocks because we have great athletes all over the floor and the other team gets to the basket, but you have to realize would Gasol be able to rotate over everytime there's a breakdown?
Even some great teams that have won aren't always Defensive Powerhouses you just need to be able to shutdown the other team in spurts, tonight we didn't have one of those "Chicago" game spurts.
