Soft players are never good defenders. Good defense IMO is a combination of aggression, technique and scouting.

Soft = bad. Raptors = soft. Bad = Raptors.
The Colangelo Suns were anything but soft.... those guys were blowing teams out in the second quarter most nights, only to coast to top playoff seeds year in and year out. You're mistaken if you think they were soft.

I do agree we are way too soft... and it's every one of our players that is. Even Reggie needs a bit more of an asshole edge to him. Too much buddy buddy is not helping.... somebody has to put these fuckers in line. Oakley was available too... would have been ideal as an assistant.
