    As we saw from the Media Day videos, everyone pretty much talked and stressed the importance of defense.
    I like that we are finally approaching this issue. Look at all the past recent winners. You will notice, that they were top ranked defensive teams.
    The offense will come, especially with Howard, and Harden. I think Parsons going with Dallas might be a blessing in disguise to be honest.
    We got Ariza, and Papa, both who are defensive minded. Then we got Adrien and Dorsey, which are also defensive minded. I can't wait to see the team lock down opposing offenses.
    Where do you think we need to rank in overall team defense to be elite ?
    Will Howard Ariza or Harden be DPOY?
    Will Bev lead the league in steals?

    Bold statements, literally. Even as questions...

    You have to be positive going into a new season. We practically lost in first round because of lack of defense. LMA going for over 40 several times, then not playing defense on the last play after the timeout.

    lol.

    Harden would have to be the best defender in the NBA for 3 years running before he would even be considered for DPOY. The stink on him is too strong for most to even consider that he's playing good defense even if he actually is playing well on that end.

    This team has great defensive POTENTIAL. Hopefully they actually reach it. Excited for the defensive impact the SF (Ariza, Papa) will play all game on wings. Huge difference for us this year.

    Talk is cheap.

    Let's see them put all this talk into practice before claiming anything.

    The trick to playing good defense, is to not play defense - James Harden

    Being positive and being unrealistic are two different things..

    Will it help if the "Defense! Defense!" chatting is changed to "JH! JH!" at Toyota Center? ;)
