I agree with this for the most part. I do think that there is a possibility that either Darius Morris or Darius Johnson Odom will step upand become a good enough defender to help the team this year. They have the type of athleticism and quickness we're going to need to deal with Westbrook, Lawson, Parker, and/or Paul come playoff time. DJO could be the next Tony Allen of the NBA. This kid is as tough and athletic as they come.
