He Use To Be A Great Defender Last Year With The Heat.. I Dunno What Happened To Him This Year, I Think Thats Somethin He Needs To Work On In The Summer. Even Tyronn Lue Can Shoot On Him Now Days. He Doesnt Use His Quick-Ness When Playin D. The Other Thing I See In Him, Is When Someone Talks Trash To Him In Games, He Starts Playin Good Defence On Them, Which Isn't Good Cuz This Is The NBA N U Always Need To Play Good Defence.TRON said:Hoffa's a rookie so ya gotta give him a break
I was the lone person voting for Rafer. He does try, but his lack of size and weight at the point has hindered his ability to stop the bigger point guards in the league. he has trouble stopping quicker guards even though he has the quickness to keep up, and seems to lack the latteral quickness that good defenders have.
Just to clarify, I decided that to be unbiased, I would list them in terms of whose presence caused the opposing team's FG% to go up the most, excluding the two guys that get less than 6 minutes a game. Alston is a +1.7%, Rose is a +2.0%, Araujo is a +2.5% (c.f. www.82games.com). Marshall, BTW, actually decreases opponent FT% (-1.5%). Now numbers obviously don't tell the whole story, or even half of it, but hopefully that explains why I put who I did in the poll.For Hoffa to be on that poll and not Donny is a joke.
