D'Alessandro: 'D' Still the Issue, but Don't Give Up Hope

In defending his stat-laden weekend analysis of the Nets' season, Dave D'Alessandro says it comes down to the Nets not having the "personnel, mentality, or toughness" to defend the way they once did. Specifically, he cites Vince Carter's inability to fight through screens and Marcus Williams poor overall defense. Still, says Dave, a matchup between the #7 seed (Nets) and #2 seed (Cavs) could prove interesting because "nobody defends LeBron better than Jefferson".
