you're not going to blame triano? or BC?

Defense does indeed need to have players that commit to it, but sound defensive sets are just as important for a team to succeed, and as much as I like triano, his is not a defensive coach.

Does Bargs defense need alot of improving, absolutely, does he at times look like he is just going through the motions, absolutely(does the same on offense even when he is dropping 25 points) But if this team had wing players who could at least make penetration a bit more difficult on the other team Bargs defense would look alot better. There is a huge amount of areas that need improving on this team and the sum of the parts amplifies the mistakes that Bargs makes.

every sigle player on the team needs to step up their defensive game
