But hey, it's the Sun - what can you expect ....
Its not like Kapono and Moon play defense anyways. Kapono has no lateral quickness to guard any decent wing man in the NBA anyways and if Moon isn't jumping up and down like a Pogo stick his BBIQ will force him off his man someway. Its not hard for Bargs
to match the defensive intensity of these two careers so personally I'd like to see it happen for small spurts of the game. Maybe just maybe showing that Mitchell will make such a drastic move will force all the wing men to wake up.
