Gil is a very good pickpocket guy and thats about it but its not like we have great defense right now anyways. As long as we got our centers doing their job then there shouldn't be much to worry about defensively.
Even with Bynum and Ariza, we never were a "hold the opp to 70" type of defensive team.
It was more like uppper 80's , lower 90's. Which still aint bad at all, it be top 5-10 in the league.
