Defense lacking is REALLY overrated.

The fact of the matter is that this is a very mediocre defense. The good news is that it is very easy to upgrade from it,
I think that the constant turnovers, obstruction penalties and overall break-downs are not the biggest signs of high intelligence.
Fair enough... the grinding lines have been steadfast. But I still think our D has been good, especially Malik.
