Y'know, if Ociepka has the Portland Trail Blazers implement an amateur-style defense based on overaggressive swarming, trapping and an emphasis on pressure rather than a pro-style defense predicated on strict man-to-man principles, it'll suffer the consequences. I mean, heck, there's a reason why true defensive gurus like Larry Brown, Scott Skiles, and Jeff Van Gundy produce first-rate defenses every season they roam the sidelines, while a run-of-the-mill assistant such as Ociepka toils around the NBA landscape like a vagabond.

Alas, JVG isn't walking through that door.
