Default Memo defending the Post

We were all suprised at Okur's defense on Yao and Duncan during the playoffs last year. So far he has looked good against Yao and Kwame.

He isn't much against the smaller guys when they cut in the paint, but the big-men seem to have a hard time backing him down without loosing the ball or fouling.

Yea, thats really good news. AK has a tough tim against the larger guys, hes alot beter at blocking the smaller/medium bunch. It will be better with a good post up player. I cant wait to watch a Utah Game this season. They dont make TV much other here

Yeah, AK gets a lot of blocks standing behind boozer/okur as they hold the man from backing them down. He's got ups.

I can't wait to see a Brewer/Kirilenko press. So far Brewer has shown he can get in there and force turnovers (I am reminded of the 4th quarter of a Denver game last year against Carmello), and transition with AK. We have seen him against Kobe and TMac, he did ok both times considering. I think he is better at forcing turnovers than lowering the opponenet's fg%, but that will come with time.
