I like defense. Aside from passing, it's my favorite part of the game. It's something I value highly, and particularly look for at all levels of the game. I notice guys who play defense, which probably may explain why I was so enamored with Andrei Kirilenko, and not Matt Harpring. I've gone on an on about the need for better perimeter defense, particularly for stopping penetration by opposing guards. But the last line of defense when all else fails is a defensive big who, through consistent negative reinforcement (blocking shots, changing shots, or fouling hard), dissuades further misadventures into the paint by opposing guards, wings, and other bigmen. This version of the NBA no longer has a space for the Mark Eaton archetype, and our current team has moved beyond the "Big, long, galoot" roster spot. However, the Jazz still need to have guys who can defend. And they need to be on the floor.
