you can run around all the screens you want, but if you don't have the lateral quicks to keep up with the offensive player you're going to get blown by, especially as the first point of defense.

i don't mean to suggest he isn't trying, but he's just not capable of being effective. on a team with 4 other quality defenders the team will help clog the lane and capture guys coming off the screens. he's not hopeless when backed up, but he is useless when he's not.
