There's no reason to have a slightly below average defense when you have Dwight Howard and Ron.
Pau might be the odd man out here. He went from being basically the most complete player in the Princeton to being a guy without a true defined role in the run and gun.
I think you'll see a much improved defensive effort from a D'Antoni team because of Howard.
