Although they will have size with three guys at 6'11" as their starting front court, none of them is a true shot blocker. So who do you predict will be doing most of the blocking? Or are you saying this because you expect a trade? If so, for whom?

Why do you believe that the perimeter defense will improve and who do you see contributing most to this?

Although I hope you are right; we still could use a shot blocker to make a big diference.

Marcus Camby or Zo would have been perfect

I was also thinking of Zo; but he's not going anywhere since the Heat won the crown.

Yeah Zo is a beast in the paint. Guys like that don't exist anymore though. Theo Ratliff is a good shotblocker and not too expensive. But looks like right now Jefferies will be our intimidator so far. He's the best defender in the post right now. Frye could develop into one but didn't really get that chance last year.

Zo and Shack are the last of the intimidating centers. Strange that they are both on the same team and in the twilight of their careers.
