well, I halfway agree with Stick on this one.....the Mavs have a group of guys that are horrible man to man defenders, and as a zone defense they are too lazy to put the clamps on the other team.....Nash is a decent defender, and Nowitzki works hard.....Finley plays off the ball well.....

but Walker, Jamison and the rest pretty much care about shooting the ball only.....so they can't play team defense.....if they had to keep the other team from scoring 80 points.....they couldn't do it.....

the Magic are another terrible defensive team.....all five guys simultaneously holler "help" when the other team has the ball, and it results in some very easy shots.....

It's my opinion that other than the Spurs, Pacers, Pistons and on occasion the Nets, all it takes is three passes and you've got a layup against every other team in the league.....some of them have a dominant shot blocker so they get away with it, and most teams don't pass the ball more than three times very often.....

but, face it.....as a whole, the D in the L is a shoddy example of times past.....everyone who is quick and athletic are erratic on defense because they are going for the flashy play and can be broken down in one on one coverage....the lack of fundamentals is disgusting.....
