Leonard really impressed me with his comments on what he needs to do in order to improve this summer. Watching him play this season it seemed like he was a step to slow on the defensive end and was hesitant on the offensive end. I think Leonard could be decent if he really works hard this summer and makes defense instinctual. This however raises the question if Meyers really works hard should Neil and Stotts show that they believe in him by not signing a back up center? I'm thinking that perhaps this might be the best approach for the off season. Whether we like it or not, the Athletic 7ft center is the future of the NBA. If we were able to get a competent vet center like Jermaine O'Neal to teach Leonard and help him grow I think that would be great. Leonard is simply to physically gifted to be riding the pine. Leonard is the perfect match physically to defend the pick and roll since Rolo is to slow to switch and Dame has trouble getting around it. If we want to improve to become an elite defense we need Leonard to do well and give Rolo a serious run for the starting spot.
