I agree because it is a well known fact that the centers,(on the defensive side of the court) main job is to prevent dribble penetration.
All of the real
centers in the league easily stop that penetration from wings that are half their size, twice their speed and generally twice as athletic. It is a thing of beauty watching a guy like dwight get switched onto someone like derrick rose and shut him down.
How about instead of solely bashing bargs, bash the entire team cause there really is NO defense on this team. Amir and Ed hustle but thats not defense. Jose/Demar/Barbo/Bayless/Kleiza/Weems have all been absolutely abysmal all season long.
