Think about all the times when Oneal is lazy on d, late on rotations cuz he can't move or just doesnt get back, did we lose that too?

He wasn't that good.

I am happy with Bargs defense and having JO at that price (23mil/next season) is not worth it. Plus Marion defense should fill a bigger hole in defense.
JO is free to join Raptors after 2010 for 7-8 mil / year if his knees lets him to play

^Yeah JO's defence was fine but we need a perimeter defender more then an interior defender. Hopefully Bargs and Bosh can increase their defensive game over the off-season.

We definitely lose a shot-blocking defensive presence in the middle, but we didn't really need one against a single big man (except maybe dwight) but for help defense against all the opposing sg's and sf's who slash to the basket. Now there'll be fewer of those since we have Marion to guard the Kobes/Lebrons/Vc's from getting to the rim. Also Barg's defence is steadily improving to help pick up the slack.

We saw the Bosh/Bargnani Frontcourt can score 50+ ppg, 20+ rbg, add in marion in thier, no just for scoring but for defence, our front court become way more athletic.

Think about it, Marion can easily avg. 12+ rebounds. you know Marion benefits off loseball, long rebounds, and that's what are weakness is, we can't get long rebounds, and loseball rebounds.

I like this trade, Banks is good defender, who wasn't given a chance. We he can play tough defence, and not be a blackhole, I'll say we won this trade.

But they key is his perimeter defence. His ability to get long rebounds, and hustle for loseball is a guy were missing, and that guy is now the Matrix.

Our interior defence will be ok, but now we can defend the perimeter.

AP who is slowing somewhat can defend the opponents 2nd best offensive player and Marion can defend their #1.AB is much improved and is getting 1.5BPG with JO. Without him there i think he can maybe get it up closer to 2. He learned alot practicing with/against JO!Our defence now is much more balanced.

our D will be terrible no matter what, because even if marion is good the rest of the 4 players on with him don't know how to rotate and cover their men so the D will still collapse to nothing like when we had JO and he had to help ever play
as long as our PG plays non-existent D it will be a big burden on the rest of the team because our PG is the absolute 1st line of defense

Bargs has improved his D this season. Our defence isn't a total train wreck

Bargs is alot better this season. He alters shots all the time, seems to get 1-2blocks per game and only gonna get better. And now with AP/Marion combo our perimeter D is soooooo much better. We aren't a great defensive team but we won't see as many rebounds given up on the defensive end now, we should see alot less 2nd/3rd/4th chance points when Marion is on the floor.Which has been one of the most frustrating things to watch this season.Our D hasn't been too bad until the other team misses because we constantly give up way too many 2nd+ chances.

JO's defence was very overrated this year. I don't care about his blocks, he wasn't anchoring anything out there. Poor rebounding is also a part of defence.
