Yea, good article; although, it's nothing that hasn't been said here before while discussing the value of Sean Marion.

If Bargs can improve his rebounding, we'll be fine. Bosh will get his, as will Evans. Rasho isn't an athletic guy that will leap over the defender, but you can bet your ass he will be boxing out and not letting the opponents get offensive rebounds, which was one of our biggest rebounding woes last year. And Rasho is also a good shot blocker and won't let the opposing team drive into the paint and get uncontested lay-ups.

Yes, I agree that we're still only okay at best when it comes to interior defense and rebounding, but we're miles ahead of where we were last year.

Besides, Evans' and Rasho's impact on the team will be felt not only in the games but during practice. Bargs and Bosh will have a much more competitive time going against those two than they would going against Pops and POB.
