I think your quotes merely say what we all know already. Mike D has a style. Yes it is offensively centered. Could defense be emphasized more? Maybe. Is it emphasized quite a bit already? Absolutely.
Where you and others tend to lose me is w your overvaluing/misevaluating of our young big men, when 1. You don't know what they're doing in practice and coaches like Mike D and our assistants have a MUCH better vantage point. And 2. You've, just like us, seen them perform poorly at the beginning of the year when our coach gave them a chance, resulting in the early season skid. Why continue to go on about coach not wanting to play BAD bigs? He's shown he's willing to play bigs that can execute the offense adequately as has been the case w Turiaf and Moz more recently. Why continue to harp on this when you have evidence to the contrary?
On defense, we run so stats that apply to more conventional teams prolly shouldn't be used to determine whether we're a good or bad defensive team. A more UNconventional stat like points per 100 possessions is more applicable IMO. Try to open your mind a little Clydeandthepearl. Mike D isnt trying to reinvent the wheel, but he is tweaking the Hell out of it. We are not a conventional team.
