I don't think so, there's a lot of smoke and mirrors in our defensive game right now, and there's only so far you can go with that. We still lack a true perimeter defender, Bargnani
even at his best, is not much better than average, and there's no way he maintains focus every game of the season. Demar still looks fairly bad and JV is apt to make a lot of rookie mistakes. And our bench is an offensive juggernaut, but lacks good perimeter defense.
I'd be happy to maintain our top 15 ranking, because I really think our offense will surprise people, we should easily be top 20 and I'm hoping for a top 13 finish.
