Incorrect. Their front line wasn't quick on the perimeter, hence why teams like LA and Orlando were bad match ups for Cleveland. That doesn't mean they had a weak front line. Ilgauskas put up pretty good numbers. Varejao is not weak. Wallace isn't the same person but not weak, he can still D up and grab some boards. What do they all have in common though.... they aren't perimeter defenders. That's why PF's like LO and Rashard Lewis give them problems.
Rasheed is a good perimeter defender. He will help against match ups like that, which is something the Celtics didn't have before.
