You said a lot of good things, but I liked this in particular. It's something I've had to work on in recent years. There were times where, if I was beat, I'd be like, "Ah well, it's up to the help defense now." I mean, I wouldn't just wave him by and stand still, but when I was beat, I kind of felt like I was out of the play.

However, I've noticed there's still a lot to be said for trailing a player who's beat you off the dribble all the way until a play occurs. Often, if help does come about, it can create a claustrophobic situation for the ball handler.
