we have to have a philosophy, and commit to it, and hard. If we double, hard doubles to force a TO, or no double at all, simple as that. We're struggling to find an identity for ourselves on the defensive side of court, and it all begins with the lack of team philosophy on defense. Smitch has got to turn this around. When we went 7-7 w/o Bosh last year, we played great D considering we had no interior defender and now, we're getting burned by players like Beno Udrih (no offense to Beno, solid player in his own right)
