I have an issue with his defense too, but at the same time, it's not like the attention isn't there but he's avoiding being an effective help side defender so he doesn't draw unnecessary fouls (which college refs are notorious for calling on big men). I think he has the potential to be at least a solid defender and it'll be interesting if the effort is there or if is defensive productivity in college was a bigger indicator.
