Talking Up Defense

There were a lot of reasons last year's Nets were bad defensively, but one was that they didn't communicate, especially down low. "When we were at our best defensively, our bigs were great talkers," Lawrence Frank tells HoopsWorld. Now, they are becoming a "chatterbox" with Brook Lopez leading the way. That intensity carried over to the offense as well, and Frank isn't the only NBA coach who thinks it could work.
