very true, bonzi killed us because we had no help defense. i think that is why elson will do well. he is very fast and can run the floor really well. his speed will also help him get over on rotations quicker than nazr and rasho.
Elson was having trouble with the help defense, sure, but i dont expect anyone to fully grasp our complex defensive system in a few practices and be able to understand them fully and implement them in the first preseason game. elson will surprise alot of people once he understands the system a little better and gains some confidence.
