I'm stealing this line from Bill Simmons: "Imagine a crunch-time unit of Kaman, Gasol, Young, a still-recovering Kobe and 40-year-old Steve Nash, with the immortal Mike D'Antoni coaching them. Has there ever been a more abominable defensive team? Their opponents could just run offenses in the form of a layup line. Go, Jimmy Boy Buss! Keep doing the damned thing!"
We probably aren't the worst defensive team in the league, but it's close.
1. We have the worst defensive coach in the league.
2. Kobe doesn't guard anymore. And that was before the injury
3. We probably have the worst defensive starting PG in the league.
4. We might have the slowest and least athletic 4/5 big man combo in the league.
