I want to see real improvement on defense. That's going to take more than cosmetic changes. Let's see that accountability we've heard so much about.
This. The defense is very disappointing. I think there was a thread in the pre-season about our regression on defense. It is clearly evident in the first few games that the defensive system is not working, especially early on in the game. I am noticing too much blow-bys and too little help. Andrea Bargnani, who was supposed to have taken a step last season, is not showing the same effort as he did a year ago. Either that or NBA scouts have learned how to beat up our defensive system.
Imo, Casey should have never emphasized offense in training camp and just worked on defense.
