You don't win in the playoffs without defense and it starts with his philosophy...or lack there of.

I've said it time and time again. One of the main goals on offense is to create mismatches. When you automatically switch without being forced to, you do the offense's job for them. We could have the best defensive players in the world. It wouldn't make much difference. When you switch all the time, your always caught guarding someone you shouldn't.

No, I never said we should strive for the 6th seed but that squad is still better than this current knick squads as it's more balanced and has a identity with less cap and picks. If we would have continued to build the team the correct team instead of mortgaging the future we would have improved even better. What if we were to sign Chandler in the offseason or traded for Dwight, etc..
