I already know you are not Hoops. The point is more aligned with repeating him almost word for word mixed with the "drop scheme" defense. You do understand basketball i presume? So you would also understand every team uses one of as many as 20 different "Drop Scheme" type defenses depending on the mobility of the players involved. Even the Lakers with Anthony Davis use a "Drop Scheme" . They also hedge just as much as the Blazers. The difference is they have a much more athletic center that can use lateral quickness and they have arguably the highest BBIQ to ever play the game along side of him. Go watch the Clippers, Warriors, Rockets and even the Jazz. They are all using it at some point in one form or another. The next issue is the statement or thought that this is the exact same defense this team has played for many years. It absolutely is not the same as last year with the players they had. It is absolutely not the same as the year before with the players they had which was different again from the year before with the players we were playing then as well. Again i presume you know basketball so if you would like to do a little of your own research and prove me wrong then so be it.
