Default Defence sound familiar?

Quote:
When examining defense, the first place to look is how a team defends the ball. Washington's ball pressure is inconsistent at best. The Wizards fail to disrupt the vision of their opponents and do very little work at making the offense uncomfortable. NBA-style pressure defense is not as frenetic as college pressure, but it is usually more purposeful and involves at least giving the offense something else to think about. This lack of pressure on the ball also makes it more difficult to choke off driving lanes. Without ball pressure the offensive player has free reign to move as he wants. This leads to drives and attack moves the offense dictates, rather than the defense choosing what angles to force the offense towards. Most defenses are built to force the offense into help situations, but the Wizards do not push their opponents anywhere in particular.

Even if they were more successful in influencing the offense to a particular place, that wouldn't necessarily translate to success. Washington's problems containing the ball are compounded by slow and sometimes non-existent help rotations. As the offense penetrates the lack of both strongside help-and-recover and weakside rotation makes it very hard for the Wizards to get a stop when they need it. If you watch the best defensive teams in the league (the Boston Celtics, the Chicago Bulls, the Miami HEAT), they are constantly flirting with defensive three second calls, getting defenders to the midline and even to the ballside of the lane when possible. It can be difficult to discern if Washington's problems start with game planning or with simple defensive awareness. Many of their frontcourt players exhibit a complete failure to see the ball when on the opposite side of the floor. They do not lane clog and they seem overly concerned with guarding their own man instead of embracing the fundamental team defensive principal of stopping the ball first.

Tired of guys not getting physical, not disrupting what other teams want to do... many point to our interior D, but I still say it begins on the perimeter. We're not the only bad team with this problem at least.

they tend to take very poor angles and attempt to finish the play with a blocked shot—missing the majority of the time, fouling part of the time, and occasionally recording a block (looking your way, Javale McGee).

Ever see Triano's quote about Kobe's 81 points?

Something like "i was just wondering why nobody would put him on his ass"

Less is more. More or less. But mostly less. Or should that be more?

I'm not a fan of the way McGee plays. Dalembert is similar, but at least McGee is still young and could figure it out.

Can't disagree. But he's played some 170 games, starting only 30-some coming into this season. Blatche is a total dunce, but McGee has a chance to make use of his athleticism without relying solely on his athleticism.

Triano is too nice. They can't get into right mindset.

When someone on our team fouls hard you can tell he was recently traded from another team. Hell, even Hedo was doing it at first...
