Players don't defend and the team would be much better with a defensive center, but my blame goes to the coaching staff.
Look at NO. All their players (except Paul) are average, but they're top 3 on defence, and this is due to their coaching staff that from day 1 asked for defence, and benched one of their best offensive players (Thorton) 'cause he didn't defend at the level they wanted. Last game against Miami Bargs was on James and when Bargs was beaten LBJ had an highway to the basket, nobody helped, and the only time I've seen someone help he was Bayleys the shortest guy on the floor. On another play Calderon switched on James and there was no help. In conclusion some kind of players are needed but first of all we need a new coach.
