I am not really sure about how he plays defense. I heard he didn't a while back but everyone is acting like he has improved so much I am wondering how much he improved defensively. I don't see him as a fixture for the future if he doesn't play defense. No matter how much his offense has improved, bench players who don't play defense are not really helping the team. He will be a bench player next year because you can't start him over crash and MarSwag. We need Marswag to improve more then Gerald.
